Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Formerly categorized as an Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a condition characterized by recurrent or persistent thoughts, urges, or images (obsessions) that may consequently lead to uncontrollable repetitive behaviors (compulsions). Someone who is diagnosed with OCD may find themselves in a cycle of repeating certain behaviors to neutralize the obsessive thoughts. These obsessions and compulsions become a psychiatric concern when they begin to cause distress, anxiety, and/or an impairment to daily functions.

Although they vary in severity and frequency for every individual, themes that are common in OCD obsessions and compulsions include but are not limited to:


  • Order and Symmetry
  • Perfectionism
  • Germs and Contamination
  • Fear of Losing Self-control


  • Rearranging Items
  • Washing and Cleaning
  • Checking
  • Repeating
  • Counting
  • Collecting Items
