Not all therapists are trained to effectively diagnose and treat OCD. At Godwin Counseling, we use exposure and response prevention (ERP), the gold standard of treatment for OCD. We also use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and DBT Skills, which are evidence based in supporting ERP.
Obsessive compulsive disorder is often misunderstood and misrepresented - it isn’t just about symmetry and cleanliness. An individual has OCD when they get caught in a cycle of obsessions and compulsions.
Obsessions are intrusive thoughts or images that get “stuck” and are often disturbing, distressing, disgusting, or out of character. These thoughts can be about a wide variety of topics (see “Common Obsessions”).
Individuals engage in compulsions, which are repetitive behaviors or mental acts aimed at neutralizing or counteracting the obsession or fear. Compulsions do not have to be visible – they might just be happening in your head. Individuals may start to avoid situations that trigger their OCD.
