NEW GROUP: Take Control of Your OCD!

Join our new weekly OCD group beginning on December 8th, led by Dr. Shimon Littman, meeting on Tuesdays from 7:00-8:00pm.

The goals of OCD group therapy are:

1. To provide a supportive environment for individuals with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) to discuss their unique struggles with people who share similar experiences.

2. To engage in exposure exercises to practice pushing back against OCD and taking control of your life!

3. To learn about OCD, the factors that maintain OCD, and how we treat it.

What is CBT?


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a collaborative, present-focused treatment that focuses on changing patterns of thinking, behavior, and emotional responding that are associated with distress. In CBT, clients learn techniques to recognize and change these patterns to improve daily functioning and life satisfaction.
