I have helped and am helping people cope with loss, divorce, anguish and parenting. Depression is also a major issue that comes up.

Yes, a person can have more than one type of OCD in the sense that a person can experience contamination and checking, for example. OCD is different for everyone and often times, stereotypes only portray one type of OCD. It could be possible that different types of OCD affect a person at different times or that one is more prevalent at the moment.
