If you have OCD, we’re guessing you’ll agree that It can be awfully hard to motivate yourself to do the therapy needed to get (and keep) your disorder in check. Yes, exposure and response prevention therapy, or ERP, is quite effective; but let's be honest: it’s also really hard work!

As two OCD survivors, we know first-hand experience how difficult OCD--and OCD therapy--can be. We also know, though, that OCD is not insurmountable. And that you can thrive, even with OCD tagging along IF you can keep the motivation needed to face the OCD Doubt Bully and use triggers to your advantage.

We invite you to join us for our e-Course, Thriving with OCD: Four Keys Out When Locked in Doubt and learn to:

  • Develop the "Triple-A" attitude needed to turn the tables on OCD
  • Maintain perspective and resolve... even in the throes of OCD
  • Make "Greater Good" choices that allow you to stand up to your OCD
  • Let go of what your OCD would like you to believe you can control

Rave Reviews from Recent Course Participants!

"Thriving with OCD is amazing! Helped me comes to terms with my intrusive thoughts and gave me new ways of tackling them!"

"This course really offers a great framework as well as examples to understand and challenge OCD."

"I would definitely encourage anyone struggling with OCD to enroll for this course....it is a unique course as it is taught by two very inspiring individuals who have suffered from OCD themselves as well as that it includes knowledge from the perspective and experience of an OCD therapist. Also I love the fact that the theoretical teachings are so well demonstrated in practical examples, which makes it so much easier to understand and apply in our own lives or situations."

"This was so helpful in describing how the symptoms of OCD manifest and applying a step by step process to interrupt the cycle."

"I enjoyed very much the stories about your personal life experience and how you used the four keys. It makes how to implement them clear and real."

"I´ve really enjoyed this great course that had a major positive impact on my motivation to work my way through tough exposures – one step at a time! Shala´s and Jeff´s positive attitude came across, and it was a relief to see that one can (and should!) actually joke while fighting OCD. I learned that I can have a great life while keeping the focus of battling this crippling disorder."

"Having instructors who have OCD is unique to the course. The videos are short, meaningful, and positive. Inspires me not to give in to the compulsions."
