Facing OCD is not easy. In fact, it takes the average person 7-10 years to seek professional help as reported by the International OCD Foundation. The stories posted here are from past clients who hope to support and inspire others suffering from OCD by understanding that you are not alone and there is HOPE. We thank our clients for sharing their stories and for the privilege of joining their journey to conquer OCD.
