Dr. Thomas Cromer
Specializes in Clinical Psychology
CBT for OCD: Hello, I would recommend finding a well reviewed psychologist trained in CBT for OCD. Very straightforward and can be very effective in a short amount of time. Good luck!
Dr. Andrew Berry
Clinical Psychology 14 years experience
Meds and therapy: Meds (usually antianxiety medications, but not always) combined with therapy with a clinician who specializes on OCD is the best combination to treat OCD, typically. This is the best treatment approach for OCD, but it does not guarantee a cure for it.
