FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

OCD

OCD is a chronic mental health condition. It occurs when a person has unwanted, recurring thoughts, images, or urges (obsessions) and uses specific behaviors (compulsions) to attempt to decrease or get rid of the obsessions.

In some cases, obsessions and compulsions are related. For example, obsessive fear of contamination that results in a compulsion to clean. In other cases, the need or urge to have things feel or look “right” motivates behavior.

Having a family history of OCD, experiencing stressful life events, and having other mental health disorders can increase your risk of developing OCD. OCD can prevent you from living a normal life because your thoughts and actions are beyond your control.

Having a thorough assessment can be reassuring and give you a better understanding of how best to move forward with an effective treatment plan for your OCD. It’s common to have a coexisting condition with OCD, and it’s important to identify all possible diagnoses to ensure a proper treatment plan.

The team at Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic uses multiple, specialized tests that give you insight into your symptoms, written out clearly for you in your assessment report. The report also includes clear next steps to start you on your OCD treatment path. 

The team at Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic uses several treatment methods to help patients who have OCD.

Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback is a form of brain training, and research proves it’s an effective way to help improve brain function. Neurofeedback is an all-natural approach that makes lasting changes at the source, which is imbalanced brain waves. Your provider can use neurofeedback to train your brain and restore a more balanced environment, guided by your brain map. 

Therapy

The team at Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic offers psychotherapy and other forms of therapy to help you with your OCD. Options include cognitive behavioral therapy, which can allow clients to build a supportive, caring relationship with one of the team’s psychologists. Together, you can learn to decrease your OCD symptoms and then hopefully work to stop the obsessions and compulsions that control your life. 

If you’re concerned about having obsessions and compulsions that are starting to take over your life, call Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic today to schedule a consultation.

Dr. Abbey saved our family. This might sound like hyperbole, but it is true.

A Doctor at the CHADD conference recommend Dr. Abbey to us, and when he did a brain map...

The clinic itself is fine. The building is in a convenient location on Cal Ave and there's usually parking. Wish they'd leave the bathroom door unlocked, tho.
