Therapy Issues

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Right now, as a result of your untreated OCD, you may be experiencing…

  • Preoccupation and fear of germs and contamination.
  • Compulsive, repetitive, and ritualistic behaviors designed to reduce contamination.
  • Use of and loss of huge amounts of time going to these behaviors. 
  • High levels of anxiety.

You’re realizing that your untreated OCD is getting in the way of your life…

  • Family and friends are getting worried about you.
  • Your work is suffering because you can’t commit the time and energy to it that you need to be successful.
  • Your behaviors are increasing, in type and time, absorbing more of your day.
  • You feel isolated from the relationships around you – like no one else gets it.

You’re wondering…

  • How can therapy possibly help me? 
  • Are you going to make me give up my patterns “cold turkey”?
  • Will I need to go on medication, too?
  • What if coming into the office or getting online triggers my OCD? How can we do this work in a way that works for me?

You’re longing for…

  • Someone safe and trusted that won’t shame you or make you give up your behaviors.
  • A chance to feel less anxious, and less worried.
  • Realistic options for how you can reduce the amount of time and energy you spend trying to control your experience.
  • A break from the obsessive thoughts that seem to rule you.

What you’re longing for is possible.

At Evergreen Counseling, we have a staff of seasoned, evidence-based therapists skilled in treating OCD.
