Therapy for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) in NYC

If you have bothersome thoughts that never seem to go away, they can take over your mind. Maybe you get scared of a thought that you cannot get out of your head.

Or perhaps you experience anxiety or worry as a result of certain thoughts. You may feel the urge to complete a behavior over and over never getting it quite right or you repeat behaviors such as hand washing, turning the light switch on and off, checking whether you locked the door or turned off the oven.

Maybe you’re superstitious to the point that you avoid doing certain thing because you are afraid of something terrible happening. You may constantly worry about potentially committing or having committed a horrible crime like molesting a child or hitting a person with your car.

If you identify with any of these experiences, know that you’re not alone and effective treatment for OCD exists.
