Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

While we may classically think of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) as individuals that compulsively wash their hands or keep a very neat house, there are many others that experience symptoms of OCD that can be very difficult to manage and lead to a great deal of distress. OCD is a grouping of symptoms that create anxiety and distress for individuals. It is characterized by intrusive (unwanted) thoughts that are disconcerting for the individual and can often prompt ritualistic behaviors to help ease the tension.

At Biltmore Psychology & Counseling, our Psychologists help individuals overcome their anxiety related to OCD, help manage their thoughts, and develop other coping skills to help ease the tension that these thoughts can bring.

Individuals often seek treatment for thoughts and compulsions related to:

  • Cleanliness
  • Repeated self-doubts
  • Order
  • Unwanted sexual thoughts
  • Unwanted aggressive thoughts
  • Uncontrolled worry about work, school, finances, and other life difficulties
  • Repetitive behaviors

Teletherapy & Video Counseling Sessions Available

Biltmore Psychology and Counseling offers teletherapy sessions as a way to participate in counseling without needing to be physically present at our office.

OCD Counseling FAQ

Will My Insurance Cover OCD Counseling?

Our office is out-of-network, so we do not accept insurance directly. However, if your insurance plan offers out-of-network benefits, we can provide you with a receipt so that you can bill your insurance directly.

Depending on the individual insurance plan, many will be reimbursed for a percentage of their payment. To determine if you have out-of-network mental health coverage, contact your insurance and ask about whether your plan includes out-of-network mental health coverage. Feel free to contact our office with any questions.
