Are you constantly worrying about recurring, obsessive thoughts over and over again?  Does this lead to some sort of ritualistic, repetitive behavior that you think is getting out of control? If so, you may be struggling with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, or OCD. OCD is a form of anxiety that can be very distressing and have a negative impact on your life.  Fortunately, as with the other forms of anxiety, it is treatable!

Get the Right OCD Treatment

Individuals with OCD have often been suffering for years, and may even have been in therapy that was unhelpful and did not seem to resolve the issue. This is because these behavior patterns take hard work and the right kind of therapy to be treated. Exposure therapy with Response Prevention has been clinically proven to be the most effective form of OCD treatment for a disorder that can take over your life if not dealt with properly.

In Treatment You Will Learn To:

  • Identify cues and triggers for your OCD
  • Manage obsessive thoughts more effectively
  • Handle anxiety when it hits
  • Resist compulsive behaviors
  • Replace compulsive behaviors with more effective behaviors
  • Start living the life you want!

Dr. Shanley has been trained in this therapeutic approach and can help you overcome what otherwise can be a devastating disorder. You do not have to continue to suffer with these repetitive thoughts and behaviors. You may think there is no hope, or that this will never go away. However, with the right treatment, there is a way out, so that you can get back the life you want that is not organized around these issues!
