Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

You are not your thoughts

Embrace uncertainty and find freedom

OCD

OCD is a disorder that involves obsessions and compulsions that interfere with one's day-to-day activities and causes distress.

It takes an average of 14 years for someone with OCD to find the evidence-based treatment they need. Let Beyond Borders CBT change that for you. All the OCD specialists within our practice have a minimum of 10 years of experience and are ready to help you on your journey to recovery.

Obsessions

Obsessions are unwanted intrusive thoughts, impulses, or images. Some common obsessions are: harm to self or others, unwanted sexual thoughts, obsessions with religious themes, overwhelming disgust, fears of becoming ill, and many more. It's important to note that obsessions are happening TO you. These thoughts are overwhelming and not something you are choosing to think.

Compulsions

Compulsions are repetitive behaviors or thoughts that a person uses in an attempt to relieve their anxiety or discomfort. Some common compulsions are: checking, seeking reassurance, repeating activities or body movements, mental rituals, internet research and avoidance. The behavior itself does not make it a compulsion, it is the way the behavior is being used. Almost anything could become compulsive.

Individual Treatment

We utilize a forms of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy called Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) which research has shown to be very beneficial for many patients. We tailor these evidence based treatments to each individual to create the most effective plan possible. We also offer parent training and SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions) to parents of children that may be too young to engage in individual treatment and/or are unwilling. Our OCD specialists are experts in the field, most with over 10 years of experience or more. We understand that OCD is not solely about anxiety & fear, but can also bring up shame, guilt, remorse and other complicated emotions. We approach treatment functionally, meaning that we look at the underlying processes that are keeping a patient stuck rather than robotically working through a protocol.

We approach treatment as a partnership between therapist and the patient. While we may be experts on OCD, you are the expert on you and no two people with OCD are alike.

We offer compassionate, science-driven treatment tailored to the individual. Ready to get your life back? Let's go!
