What does therapy look like at Georgia Center for OCD & Anxiety?

Any new experience can be unsettling and starting therapy can be particularly intimidating. Knowing a bit more about what you will experience can help.

During your first meeting, also called an initial evaluation, your therapist will ask questions about your concerns, current life situation and what you hope to gain from treatment. From there, your therapist will give you a preliminary conceptualization of treatment goals and objectives.

Subsequent sessions will include psychoeducation, plan formulation, new strategy implementation, and therapeutic work to continue outside of session. We employ a typical outpatient treatment model, in that most of our clients attend weekly or bi-weekly sessions lasting about 50-55 minutes.

In treating OCD and Anxiety Disorders, we utilize a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy / Exposure and Response Prevention approach. This approach is a proactive method in reducing the severity, intensity and frequency of symptoms.

Our specialties include:

Although we specialize in OCD and anxiety related disorders, we also help with a variety of other concerns. Each person’s concerns are unique, and our treatment will be tailored to your individual needs.
