The first 2-3 appointments are 1-hour assessment sessions. These sessions are the foundation of the recovery process. Together with your ERP therapist, you will develop a Treatment Recovery Plan and customized, graded exposure hierarchy to target OCD. Session 4 and beyond are dedicated to Exposure and Response Prevention treatment. Clients, families, and your therapist will work together to determine frequency of sessions and length of treatment based on progress and individual situations. Typically, treatment lasts between 17-22 sessions.
Parent/ Family Sessions: OCD can significantly impact and burden family members, and family can influence response to treatment. As such, these sessions are essential. Focusing on the family, these sessions help to cultivate the skills to facilitate recovery, reduce conflict and blame, and improve family cohesion.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment
This is a more intensive treatment option. Sessions are approximately 90 minutes in length, 5 days per week.
