While all personal concerns involve some degree of emotional pain, it is my experience in dealing with clients who have Obsessive-Compulsive disorders that their pain has the unique feature of being present daily in a specific way. Moreover, clients who have Obsessive-Compulsive disorders can engage in repetitive behaviors and/or thoughts that sometimes feel irrational and out of control. As a therapist, I try to help clients examine irrational thoughts that lead to the latter behaviors and thoughts and find new, more effective ways of managing their emotional distress as they experiment with new behaviors and patterns. Sometimes, medication can be a useful adjunct to therapy.
