Do you suffer from unwanted thoughts and anxiety? Do you worry about bad things happening to you or those you love? Maybe you are having thoughts that you have harmed someone or may harm someone in the future. Perhaps you fear that you will become contaminated or that you will be responsible for a tragedy. Do you wash your hands excessively or check things like door locks or the stove? Or do you avoid things like knives, public restrooms, or anything that might trigger your fearful thoughts? OCD thoughts can take any form, and there is successful treatment available.

Individual, group, Skype and Teletherapy appointments are available for your OCD.

Group Therapy: Wednesdays, 7:15 - 8:45 pm, fee $50 per week. Please call for an assessment.
