Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Living with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) can be an overwhelming and isolating experience. The intrusive thoughts and repetitive behaviors associated with OCD can disrupt your daily life and create a constant sense of unease. However, you don’t have to face OCD alone. Brave Mental Health Community’s OCD Counseling program is here to provide you with the support, understanding, and effective strategies you need to regain control over your life and find relief from the grip of OCD.

Intrusive Thoughts and Fear of Contamination

Imagine experiencing intrusive thoughts about contamination and a relentless fear of germs. You engage in frequent and time-consuming rituals like excessive hand washing to alleviate anxiety.

How Counseling Helps: Our therapists specialize in treating contamination-related OCD. Through cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and exposure and response prevention (ERP), you can learn to manage intrusive thoughts, reduce anxiety, and regain control over your life.

Checking and Safety Rituals

Picture an overwhelming need to check appliances, doors, or other items repeatedly to ensure safety. This compulsion consumes hours of your day and interferes with your ability to function.

How Counseling Helps: Our counselors are experienced in addressing checking behaviors. They can help you identify triggers, challenge irrational beliefs, and gradually reduce the need for checking through exposure therapy.

Intrusive Thoughts

Consider experiencing distressing intrusive thoughts that go against your values or beliefs. You engage in mental rituals, such as counting or repeating words silently, to neutralize these thoughts.

How Counseling Helps: Our therapists specialize in helping individuals with mental rituals and intrusive thoughts. They will guide you through exposure and response prevention techniques to reduce the impact of these thoughts and regain mental clarity.
