Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
We all have that friend who says things like, “I’m so OCD about that,” when talking about keeping their desk tidy, but real obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a complex anxiety condition that can negatively impact a person’s ability to lead a fulfilling life. We all have things that we’re particular about, but that doesn’t necessarily indicate an OCD diagnosis or need for therapy.
You can learn a little more about OCD on this page, and if you have questions or want to find out more, the team of therapists at The Center for CBT in New York City would love to chat with you about therapy for obsessive compulsive disorder.

How Does CBT Help with OCD?
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a unique therapeutic method that helps people to analyze the ways that thoughts, feelings, and actions are connected in order to change repeated behaviors, feelings, or thoughts that are not beneficial. For individuals with OCD, this form of therapy can be extremely beneficial. When people are able to fully understand cycles of thinking, feeling, and doing, they can begin taking steps toward change.
