OCD Treatment Methods
We Specialize In OCD Treatment
Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy (ERP)
ERP is the primary treatment technique used and is the gold standard for OCD treatment. In ERP, we will guide you in a step-by-step process of exposing yourself to the thoughts and situations that are triggering your distress- without allowing a compulsion to stop the distress. Without the compulsive behaviors you will habituate to the distress.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT skills will focus on changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviors and developing personal coping strategies.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
ACT can help you experience your thoughts, feelings and sensations while still doing the things you value in your life.
