What Our Clients Can Expect From Us

Our experienced therapists use treatments targeted specifically at OCD to ensure that treatment actually works so you can get unstuck from OCD as quickly as possible. 

We’ll work together with you to create a step-by-step treatment plan to help you reach your goals. You’ll learn practical strategies to get control back from OCD so you can find moments of peace again.

We use both exposure and response prevention (ERP) therapy and Inference-Based CBT (ICBT) to work with OCD symptoms.

While ERP has decades of research to support it ICBT also has a place in our treatment plans.

Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy 

ERP is designed to help you confront things that you’re afraid of giving yourself a chance to learn that anxiety is temporary and the thing you’re most afraid of is unlikely to happen.

Inference-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

ICBT is an alternative to ERP. ICBT is a cognitive therapy based on the idea that people with OCD use faulty reasoning devices, which leads them to confuse what’s possible with what’s likely. 

ICBT does not include any exposure. Instead, it focuses on first helping you understand how and why you made the inference you did. It then helps you change your perspective so that your doubts no longer seem important or urgent.
