OCD Treatment That Works!

Our therapists are trained extensively to use the best treatment for OCD, helping you and your family overcome OCD and reclaim your life.

Start Your Journey to Recovery

Unload the fear, shame, and frustration and work through the OCD to regain control of your life.

No one seems to understand OCD, and so you’ve never told anyone about your intrusive thoughts.

We’ve heard it before, and we’ve treated it before. From relationship OCD to postpartum OCD, and everything taboo in between, our ERP therapists are here to support your recovery journey, every step of the way.

We currently offer in-person therapy in Barrie, Ontario, and virtual therapy across Ontario, Alberta, Manitoba, Newfound & Labrador, Nova Scotia, and PEI.

Do You or Somebody You Know Have OCD?

You can learn how to manage and overcome the OCD fear so that OCD no longer controls your life.

Regardless of the OCD subtype, ERP therapy can help you overcome the fear and move forward. Therapy for OCD can help anyone who feels the OCD symptoms are more than they’d like them to be, or feel the OCD is interfering with your life.

OCD Obsessions
People with OCD have repetitive and distressing fears or urges they can’t control. These obsessive thoughts cause intense anxiety.
OCD Compulsions
To control obsessions and anxiety, people with OCD turn to certain behaviors, rituals or routines. They do so repeatedly. Compulsions only help temporarily, though.
Living With OCD You May:
Need to repeat your actions until it feels just right.
Feel an uncomfortable feeling, like something bad could happen
Know you “shouldn’t” have to do something, but it feels like you need you
Rely on others to help you get through the day, or provide reassurance
Worry about things you feel “normal” people wouldn’t worry about
Feel intense shame about the content of your intrusive thoughts, and hide them from others

Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP).

Together with your therapist, you’ll face your fear in-real life or through your imagination. Your exposure might take place in clinic, at home, or in the community.

As OCD specialists and experts, we know you can overcome OCD.  

We will work together to identify, target, and remove the OCD obsessions keeping you stuck in fear, and the OCD compulsions that frustrate and annoy you.  We’ll develop a comprehensive treatment plan you can start using every day to fight back OCD.  

You’ll learn strategies, tailored to your unique OCD fear, to effectively manage the OCD. As social workers with extensive training in ERP for OCD, we use ERP every, single, day. 

During Therapy for OCD, you will learn: 

  • How to recognize the OCD voice 
  • Strategies to respond to the OCD that do not include compulsions  
  • How to face your fear and teach OCD who’s in charge 
  • And more
