Client Testimonial

"Lauren Spencer...has helped me understand more fully how OCD works and has provided me with the tools needed to keep my OCD from taking over my world. She explains each facet of this mental illness and has provided me with tasks that have helped me live a fuller life. She is an OCD specialist who completely understands what someone who suffers from it deals with on a daily basis."

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

OCD is one of the most misunderstood and misidentified disorders despite 1 in 40 people having it. It is comprised of extremely distressing intrusive thoughts that the person cannot get out of their head and compulsions, either mental or physical, that they employ in attempt to ease the anxiety triggered by the obsession. 

OCD is a disorder that must be treated using certain modalities in order to effectively treat the illness. I personally use Exposure-Response Prevention and Acceptance Commitment Therapy. Not only do I have training in treating the disorder, but I also have personal experience with OCD, making me extremely empathetic to the plight of my clients, and all the more passionate about them receiving proper treatment.

OCD Family Member Support Group

Loving someone with OCD can be confusing, challenging, and sometimes even painful. I hold an online support group for people who love someone with OCD. In it, you will learn how the OCD brain works, ways to support your person without accommodating the OCD, and be supported in your own struggles by fellow family members.
