Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Make An Appointment

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) features a pattern of unwanted thoughts and fears (obsessions) that lead you to do repetitive behaviors (compulsions). These obsessions and compulsions interfere with daily activities and cause significant distress.

Obsessions are repeated thoughts, urges, or mental images that cause anxiety. Obsessive symptoms can include:

  • Fear of contamination or dirt
  • Doubting and having difficulty tolerating uncertainty
  • Needing things orderly and symmetrical

Compulsions are repetitive behaviors that a person with OCD feels the urge to do in response to an obsessive thought. Examples of compulsions can include:

  • Fear of being contaminated by touching objects others have touched
  • Doubts that you've locked the door or turned off the stove
  • Intense stress when objects aren't orderly or facing a certain way
  • Images of driving your car into a crowd of people

Treating OCD with Neurostimulation

Using neurostimulation and neurofeedback we can begin to loosen the grip of the obsession and/or compulsion. Your mind will slowly begin to release the all-consuming thoughts. You will have the ability to discern real from unreal and to “shut it off.” The mind becomes more quiet and becomes more efficient at managing all issues.
