Are you engaging in activities to relieve the feelings of distress you may be experiencing? Maybe these activities are completed due to an irresistible urge you are experiencing.

April Vass's Groups

ERP Group

The ERP group is 90 mins long and is held weekly for 9 weeks. In addition to the group you will receive a 15-minute phone check-in each week with the clinician and access to an online support group. The objective of this group is for individuals to develop an understanding of OCD and begin Exposure and Response Prevention treatment through a supportive group environment. Individuals will gain the skills required to continue engaging in exposures on their own or in the ERP Group 2.0 (a clinician run exposure group).
