MENTAL HEALTH CONDITION
What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is distinguished by persistent, intrusive thoughts (obsessions) that are distressing and trigger intense anxiety, causing someone to carry out repetitive behaviors or mental acts (compulsions). The compulsive rituals serve as a mechanism to temporarily relieve distress or prevent perceived harm. The range of obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors is diverse, making each individual’s experience unique. These obsessions and compulsions can significantly interfere with daily functioning, impacting relationships, work, and overall well-being.

What is therapy?
Therapy offers a safe and confidential space for individuals to explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. During therapy sessions, your Headlight therapist will actively listen and provide guidance and insights to help you better understand yourself, your relationships, and your challenges. Talk therapy can address a variety of mental health concerns, from anxiety and depression to trauma and relationship issues. Headlight’s clinicians are experienced in various therapeutic approaches and techniques and offer in-person or virtual sessions.
What is the difference between therapy and psychiatry?
Therapy, often provided by psychologists, social workers, or counselors, involves talking through emotional and psychological challenges to gain insight and develop coping strategies. Whereas, psychiatry, typically led by medical doctors, focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of mental health issues using medication alongside therapy when necessary. While therapy emphasizes conversation and behavioral strategies, psychiatry integrates medication management to address biochemical imbalances in mental health conditions.
Why is it so important to find the right therapist?
Finding the right therapist is so important as it establishes a foundation of trust, creating a safe space for open communication. A well-matched therapist can better understand your individual needs, ensuring personalized support and enhancing the effectiveness of the therapeutic process.
