OCD and Anxiety Treatment Center

OCD and Anxiety Treatment CenterObsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and anxiety are both common mental health conditions. Both of these can be characterized by repetitive worrying, but they do have distinct differences. A person with OCD will likely engage in repetitive behavior(s) in an effort to cope with or reduce fear and stress, while a person with anxiety would not engage in those behaviors.

Are You Experiencing OCD or Anxiety?

While OCD and anxiety can seem similar, each has its own set of common symptoms that can help differentiate the two.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

  • Repetitive fear of unrealistic scenarios
  • Engaging in repetitive, unwanted behaviors in an attempt to cope
  • Physical symptoms may or may not be present


  • Fear of activities in daily living
  • Absence of repetitive behaviors
  • Physical symptoms such as nervousness, rapid heart rate/breathing, sweating, difficulty concentrating, etc.

What To Expect From OCD and Anxiety Treatment

If you notice any of the symptoms above, it is a good idea to reach out to your doctor or a mental health professional. Therapy is proven to be helpful for those experiencing anxiety or OCD. Your counselor will work with you to develop a treatment plan specific to your goals, but it is common for therapy for anxiety or OCD to be based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Exposure Therapy.
