For anyone who had OCD treatment with a therapist, what did they specialize in and how did it go?? I just had an intake appointment with a talk therapist. I'm not sure whether to continue with her. I want a therapist who specializes in OCD and maybe exposure therapy. She says she specializes in OCD because it's under anxiety and panic disorders. But I walked away sort of feeling off and suspicious.

      One on hand it's good to go to a few appointments with her just to see if she can help you. On the other, I completely understand the dilemma and would also ask to see someone else. I'm in an OCD group therapy but have a therapist in mind for aftercare and I'm set on seeing him because he specializes in OCD, and I really think he'd understand me more than say an anxiety therapist. I've also learned about NOCD, which may help you.

        @Ladoo thanks for your insight! I'm navigating this by myself and I feel so overwhelmedđŸ˜„ I'll look into NOCD

      NOCD is great because they have different subtypes and they have online therapy options. Idk what insurance they cover though.
