Finding Therapy That Works

A young, sullen woman in her mid-thirties lays on a couch, speaking of her dissatisfaction with life, while her bearded, middle –aged, male therapist looks through his spectacles and provides bits of insight into her mother’s contribution to her beliefs that she is inadequate and unworthy of love and happiness.

    This blog is long overdue. Thank You! Though I hear stories every day, it never ceases to amaze me how many people don’t know (including some therapists) the frontline treatment for OCD is Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) Therapy. In my son’s case, this therapy worked a million times better than any of the ten meds he was on (they only hurt, not helped). He went from having OCD so severe he couldn’t even eat, to a college graduate with a wonderful life ahead of him, all due to ERP Therapy. Thanks for helping to spread the word!

      Thanks, Janet for sharing your experience with ERP. This is my area of clinical expertise, so you will definitely be hearing more about ERP in this forum. Stay tuned.
