OCD is a complex disorder that is often misconstrued in our popular culture. It encompasses a lot more than just orderliness and compulsive handwashing. Individuals with this disorder experience distressing obsessions and/or compulsions that are usually categorized thematically. These themes include (but are not limited to) fear of contamination, fear of acting aggressively, fear of something terrible happening or fear of becoming ill. OCD can be all-encompassing and can make it hard to get through the day. In our work together, we’ll explore how OCD shows up for you, what it tries to tell you, and how to tackle it head-on.

OCD is actually your way of coping with anxiety. You might not have knowingly chosen to become obsessive with your thoughts and compulsive in your actions. But your body is convinced doing the excessive acts will somehow make you less stressed. Unfortunately it doesn't work that way. Let me teach you new ways to cope with anxiety so that you can start changing how much time and energy your thoughts and behaviours are robbing from you.
