“It would vary anywhere from thinking about the tasks that I need to get done tomorrow, or mentally reviewing a conversation I had with somebody from 10 years ago. Then I would look at the clock and get even more anxious over the hours of sleep I lost ruminated on things outside of my control. The cycle would continue each night.
I too have experienced the torturous symptoms of Obsessive-compulsive disorder. Before I was diagnosed, I was consumed with automatic negative thoughts that interfered with my day-to-day functioning. I would spend hours chasing, analyzing, reviewing, and gave meaning to my intrusive and obsessive thoughts. As someone that’s been in your shoes, there is hope and recovery to overcome this disorder. I will teach you how to change your relationship with anxiety by looking it in the face and walking towards it instead of walking away. It is easy to stay trapped and believe the false messages that your OCD feeds you. I will teach you how to rewire your brain into no longer believing those false threats that your brain is torturing you with. My treatment approach teaches you how to stop competing with your OCD and become your own boss. It’s easy to fall for the tricks that OCD plays on your mind. The thoughts and the emotions completely hijack our reality so how could they not be easy to fall for?
With the proper tools, I can teach you how to be your own therapist so that you can overcome your own intrusive and obsessive thoughts. Let’s work together as a team to quit giving your intrusive thoughts meaning and live a more meaningful and happier life.”
