Family & Group Therapy
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is characterized by a pattern of intrusive, unwanted and anxiety-provoking thoughts that trigger intense urges to engage in compulsive, repetitive and time-consuming ritualized behaviors. The compulsive rituals are designed to reduce the anxiety caused by the obsessive thoughts, but they provide only short-term relief in what becomes an obsessive-compulsive cycle.
At both PCH Treatment Center and Community West, I have extensive experience in treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) using exposure with response prevention (ERP), the gold standard approach to treating this disorder. I flexibly apply this treatment with clients in my practice.
