Do you suffer from obsessions with persistent, unwanted thoughts? These can often lead to repeated, irrational behaviors, known as compulsions. For example, some people with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) feel they must wash their hands hundreds of time each day, or count to ten every time they enter or leave a room, check the locks on their doors a certain number of times every night, or engage in any number of behaviors that have no real purpose other than to manage the anxiety felt when the person does not give in to these impulses.
When obsessions and compulsions interfere with functioning, the support of a therapist or mental health professional may be helpful in the management of symptoms. Contact us today for the help you need.
