Treatment For Obsessive Compulsive Disorder


Individuals suffering from OCD can take heart and hope in knowing that effective and reliable treatment exists for their condition.  Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP) and Inference-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (ICBT) both enjoy ample empirical evidence as effective approaches for the treatment of OCD and can transform your life by helping you resolve obsessive doubt and face your fears in an empowered and confidence-building way, while resisting the compulsive behaviors that serve to maintain and entrench the OCD cycle.  Treatment that additionally focuses on eliminating compulsive rumination and other mental rituals can also aid in creating meaningful change and a return of one’s sense of agency. Many OCD sufferers may never seek treatment due to feelings of shame, embarrassment, and fear over their obsessions, or may seek help only to be offered ineffective and sub-therapeutic interventions that increase feelings of hopelessness.  OCD treatment must focus on creating cognitive and behavioral change and developing skills and techniques to help you take charge of your life and start moving forward. By focusing on your values, purpose, and your innate courage and capacity to heal, you can reclaim joy, hope, and confidence for your life.
