How Can a Therapist Help?

OCD in Children

Children with OCD show signs of obsession, which are fears that the child can't stop thinking about, and compulsions, which are rituals that your child may do to control their fears and prevent bad things from happening.

Parents may notice that the child:

  • Has trouble concentrating.

  • Gets irritated or anxious when things are not perfect.

  • Washes their hands frequently.

  • Get upset about asymmetry.

  • Needs parent to say or do exactly as they say.

  • Spends too much time getting dressed, do homework, and other

  • daily tasks.

  • Is feeling or acting sad, anxious, irritable or tense.

Children who have experienced a trauma can often find it difficult to verbalize their thoughts and feelings about the traumatic event. Our therapists offer a specialized approach to children process what had happened and learn how to cope.
