Perhaps it started with one or two jarring and disturbing thoughts or images or an unshakable feeling that something wasn't right. Desperate to get rid of this unsettling experience, you performed a behaviour or mental act that you just felt compelled to complete, and at first, it seemed to help. Now you are caught in a vicious cycle where you feel the overwhelming urge to engage in certain thoughts or behaviours over and over in search of relief. You're stuck, and you desperately want to get out. If you can relate, you are not alone. Obsessive-compulsive disorder is an experience that affects 1-2% of the population.
Here's the good news: OCD recovery is possible! As a clinician trained in Exposure and Response Prevention (Ex/RP) therapy (the gold-standard treatment for OCD), I will collaborate with you and your family to support you. Together, we will cultivate the tools necessary for you to beat OCD and take back control in your life - because you totally can.
I wholeheartedly believe there is no shame surrounding the OCD experience and recognize the bravery it takes to advocate for oneself and seek help. With me, you will find a judgement-free space where you can feel safe, accepted, seen, and able to express vulnerability. Don't let shame stop you from taking your life back - let's beat OCD together!
