CENTER FOR ANXIETY DISORDERS AND PHOBIAS

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

  • Obsessions or Compulsions
  • Recurrent and persistent thoughts, impulses, or images that are experienced as intrusive, inappropriate and cause marked anxiety or distress.
  • Repetitive behaviors that a person feels driven to perform in response to an obsession.
  • The person recognizes that the obsessions or compulsions are excessive or unreasonable.
  • Obsessions or compulsions cause marked distress or significantly interfere with usual functioning, social activities, or relationships.

We specialize in time-limited focused, cognitive-behavioral treatments for Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, including exposure and response prevention treatment.
