Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health disorder that affects people of all ages. Obsessions are unwanted, intrusive thoughts, images, or urges that trigger intensely distressing feelings. Compulsions are behaviors an individual engages in to attempt to get rid of the obsessions and/or decrease distress. Obsessions will often attach to things that are important to us, such as relationships, our children, or our morals. We treat OCD using the evidence-based treatment model of Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy.
