ERP is the gold standard for treating OCD and other anxiety disorders. It is evidence based and highly effective. This is a behavioral intervention that we will work together to implement. I believe it is important to teach my clients as much as possible about these treatment approaches so that there is a thorough understanding of how they work and why they work!

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) is considered the gold standard treatment for OCD. While seemingly straight forward, the ideas behind how to utilize this method are nuanced and talking back to OCD can be tricky. We get creative together! ERP helps you learn to face your fear while preventing you from engaging in the compulsions (or responses) that maintain the fear. Consent is of utmost importance and you have the final say in readiness and motivation to face your fear head on.

Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy is proven to be effective for at least 75% of people suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I know how scary it can feel to repeatedly confront head-on the fears that are driving your distracting rituals, but science shows us that it's the best and quickest way to relief. I have completed intensive training on how to use Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy for OCD through the Cognitive Behavioral Institute.

I use ERP to treat anxiety disorders and OCD. ERP is a type of CBT, that works on changing behaviors and managing unpleasant thoughts and feelings. We take the time to expose yourself to the anxiety without engaging in safety behaviors and/or compulsions. Through exposure we are training the brain to face fears despite anxiety being present, and when we prevent compulsions we train the brain that the feared stimulus isn't worth the extra time and energy. Let's be brave together.

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy is a therapeutic modality that was developed to help people confront their anxieties, fears, obsessions, and phobias. When people are fearful of a thing or idea, they can completely change their lives to make avoiding this fear possible, often making the fear stronger and life unbearable. ERP focuses on gradual and controlled exposure ultimately aimed at taking the power away from anxiety and allowing people to re-engage with their own lives again.
