Approaches to Therapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT teaches individuals to identify, assess and respond to their dysfunctional thoughts and beliefs. It is based on the idea that distorted thoughts and maladaptive behaviors play a role in the development of a psychiatric disorder. CBT is an evidence-based practice which is highly effective in treating OCD, hoarding disorder, depression and anxiety. It focuses on enhancing coping strategies that target the problematic thoughts, attitudes and emotions. 

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

MI is a clinical approach that helps people with mental health disorders make positive behavioral changes to support better health. It is collaborative and person-centered and addresses the common problem about ambivalence toward change. It is a process that supports change in a manner that is congruent with one’s own values and concerns.

Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) Therapy

ERP is an evidence-based treatment that targets OCD. Clients are exposed to situations and places that trigger his/her OCD symptoms. The goal is that over time the client is able to become desensitized to their fears. Repeatedly facing one’s fears and uncomfortable thoughts allows anxiety to gradually decrease.
