My approach is direct, kind, honest & collaborative. My clients appreciate that I help them in a way that cuts through the jargon and gives clear explanations.

Every time you get a thought that triggers you to behave certain way, challenge that thought and replace it with a more helpful thought. Reward yourself and the shift your focus on some other activity.

There is no one answer fits all. Everyone is different. You have to find what works for you. It could be through coping skills, meds, professional counselor or therapist or a combination. Good Luck!

Find out where the obsessive compulsive behavior came from. There is always a root cause to it and deal with that root cause to heal the disorder.
