Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Specialized treatment for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is difficult to find in Mississippi. Lacy Deese, LPC, BC-TMH has worked with adult clients with OCD for over 12 years. She uses Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for OCD along with other Cognitive and Mindfulness techniques that are curated to treat each client with care and attentiveness. Her warmth and compassion paired with the structure of the interventions have been helping clients cope with OCD and intrusive thoughts for over a decade.

“OCD is different from anxiety. It has to be treated as such. Certain techniques associated with traditional Cognitive Behavior Therapy can actually exacerbate OCD, making the obsessions worse. In my approach, I educate the client on the nature of OCD and map out a treatment plan that aims to stop feeding it. It’s hard work for the client, but ERP has been widely researched and has been proven to be incredibly effective at treating the symptoms of OCD.”
