Melissa was amazing in helping manage my OCD over the past several years. I went from severe disruption to my daily activities to moderate (potentially subclinical!) symptoms over the course of treatment. The treatment is hard and challenging work, but if you can push through, you'll get out of it what you put in. I also loved that medication was an option, not a requirement like some other OCD therapists I interviewed. My OCD hasn't "gone away," but with our treatment plan/strategies it has become very manageable. I'd highly recommend Beyond Borders and Melissa for others struggling with OCD!
