Philosophy

PHILOSOPHY

Therapy for OCD, Anxiety and Eating Disorders at the Center for the Obsessive Mind focuses on researched treatments in order that we can best support those we work with. The approaches we use include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and more. That said, you are a person, not a diagnosis. Each of us is unique and thus tailoring the treatment to your needs is crucial. Given this, our therapists use an integrative approach drawing from many treatments in serving those we work with.

THERAPY WITH THE CENTER FOR THE OBSESSIVE MIND

Psychotherapy is a joint effort between two people. Indeed, in the course of treatment the Therapist and Client form a team whose mission is to help the Client to live a fuller life. Our philosophy embodies the spirit of collaboration, respect, and appreciation that make for a strong partnership.

In this team, the mental health professional is the expert on recovery and the person seeking treatment is the expert on themselves. You might think of it like this: The Therapist has the roadmap. They have helped many people navigate down a similar road and have studied the geography of similar landscapes for years. The Client is behind the steering wheel, and has driven this neighborhood before. A lot. The Client just doesn’t know the car’s mechanics, its capacity and what the landscape looks like beyond a certain point. Perhaps there are areas that they don’t know exist or that they thought were off-limits. Through therapy, the Therapist and Client use each of their knowledge bases to support the Client in finding their way through their lives.

We create plans with each of our clients that are informed by training and knowledge as well as the person’s goals and values. That’s because therapy for OCD, Anxiety and Eating Disorders should be tailored to each person’s needs. Want to learn more about our approach?
