OCD Therapy

What Is OCD ?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, images, and sensations (obsessions) that drive them to do something over and over again (compulsions). Often the person carries out the behaviors to reduce the anxiety caused by the obsessions.


An OCD diagnosis is made when a person demonstrates both obsessions and compulsions that are excessive, cause significant distress, take up a lot of time (more than 1 hour per day), or significantly interfere with important activities that the person values. 


What Causes OCD?


The exact cause of OCD is not fully understood, but it is thought to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

OCD Therapy


At Level Up Leadership Consulting & Psychology, we understand that living with OCD can be extremely difficult and debilitating. Our therapists are experienced in working with individuals suffering from OCD and use a variety of treatment methods to help our clients overcome their symptoms and live a happier, more fulfilling life.


There are many different types of therapy that can be effective in treating OCD, and the most appropriate type of therapy will be tailored to the individual’s specific needs and goals. Some of the most common types of therapy used to treat OCD include:


Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy: CBT is a type of therapy that focuses on helping individuals identify and change negative thinking patterns and behaviors that are contributing to their OCD symptoms.


Exposure and Response Prevention: This type of therapy involves gradually exposing the individual to the things they are afraid of (i.e. “exposure”) and teaching them how to resist the urge to engage in their compulsions (i.e. “response prevention”).


Family-based therapy: Family-based therapy is a type of therapy that involves the individual’s family in their treatment. This can be beneficial as it can help to increase support and understanding from loved ones.
