OCD Awareness Week

Oct 11, 2021

Welcome to OCD Awareness Week!

 

Most of OCD awareness is geared towards helping the general public become more aware of OCD and the struggle of living day to day with OCD. And while I support this mission completely, I want to focus this episode on the importance of becoming more aware as individuals. Many people compartmentalize our struggle with OCD into boxes we feel comfortable...

Mental Health Awareness

In this episode, I want to open up a broader discussion about mental health awareness. I know next week is officially OCD awareness week, but I wanted to start up the conversation early because there is simply too much to discuss to get it all don't in one week.

And the harder we try to resolve this possible...

We live in a strange time right now where people are carelessly labeling each other and more importantly dehumanizing one another, which is an incredibly dangerous thing to do.

OCD & Anxiety Treatment - Giving Power to Intrusive Thoughts- Pure O OCD treatment

Sep 10, 2021

When going through OCD & Anxiety Treatment it is so important to understand how we misinterpret intrusive thoughts and paradoxically give them power over our lives.  When we have intrusive thoughts we often feel compelled to solve them or try to get rid of them. But when we do that we indirectly validate them as a "real" problem which paradoxically makes our brain keep producing them....

OCD & Anxiety Treatment - The Voice in the Mind & Propaganda - Pure O OCD treatment

Sep 03, 2021

When it comes to OCD Treatment one of the things we have to learn to navigate is the voice of the mind. I often like to use the concept of Propaganda with my clients when describing the voice of the mind. The definition of Propaganda is "communication that is primarily used to influence an audience and further an agenda, which may not be objective and may be selectively presenting facts to...
