Get the Relief You Deserve.
Unfortunately, OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is more prevalent in today’s society than you might think. OCD affects more than 2 million adults across the United States. Historically, the turn-to treatment has been cognitive behavioral therapy. However, for patients suffering from OCD, cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT is not always the best course of treatment. Because CBT is very demanding, it can be particularly more stressful for those who need OCD treatment.
Recently, EMDR therapy has been showing promising results as an alternative option for OCD treatment. Due to its gentler, less demanding nature, we’ve noticed that our patients at Revibe Therapy in Winter Park have a more positive response to this therapy. Contact our team at Revibe Therapy to learn more about our EMDR Therapy as OCD treatment and schedule your appointment today.

In modern slang, OCD has become somewhat synonymous with someone who likes to keep things neat, likes things a certain way, is a perfectionist, or is very clean. While someone in need of OCD treatment may have some of these behaviors, they are not what qualifies someone as having obsessive compulsive disorder. It is completely normal and healthy to like things a certain way, to like things clean, or to have high expectations of those around you. The real difference comes from when it starts to negatively impact your day-to-day life.
Every time Henry leaves the house, comes home, or goes to bed, he has to lock and unlock the door 37 times exactly — no more, no fewer. This is not something that Henry wants to do, it’s something he feels he has to do otherwise something very bad will happen. He may believe that someone will break in and harm his family unless the door is unlocked exactly 37 times. He knows that this belief isn’t rational, but he can’t stop — it’s the only way he can sleep at night and function throughout the day.
Jessica has always been a clean person. She washes her hands regularly, bathes on a daily basis, and always cleans up after herself around the home. As of late, though, things have progressed. She compulsively washes her hands every few minutes — sometimes so much so that her hands are raw, red, and extremely dry. Jessica doesn’t want to keep washing her hands all the time, she feels as if she needs to or she will contract a fatal bacterial disease.
Many people actually live, function this way, and believe these thoughts on a daily basis so much so that it interferes with their lives. The only way people suffering from OCD can find relief from its grip is by performing the obsessive compulsive action — whether they want to or not. It’s not so much a preference as it is a compulsive need driven by anxiety, dread, or irrational fear of an irrational consequence.
