OCD Group Therapy in Lakewood

OCD Group Therapy the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month starting October 2017, Denver West 

There are very few OCD Group Therapy options are available in the Denver area.  Additionally, limited peer support is available. If you have been struggling with OCD and feel completely stuck in your rituals, you don’t have to go through this alone. A new therapeutic group will be offered on Thursdays on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month run by OCD specialist and licensed therapist, Lori Johnson, M.A., LPC. LAC and OCD advocate and peer support specialist, Chrissie Hodges, B.A.

This group will run the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, starting in October from 5:30-7:30pm. The fees for attending this group are $35/session. Insurance will not be accepted. You are free to participate in any or all of these sessions.

the 2nd week of the month group sessions will start with the basics of Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), which is the evidenced based treatment for OCD. We will build upon your learning and work towards targeting an obsession or compulsion as a group. You are most likely to benefit from repeated exposure sessions, so take that into consideration. Because treatment is Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP)-based with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as adjuncts, as group progresses, participants must be willing to complete exposures targeting their fear that is part of the OCD group therapy. You will get encouragement from the group clinician, peer support specialist, and group peers in a caring and supportive environment.

The 4th Thursday of the month, the meeting will be focused on support of recovery and stigma of OCD and mental health. Chrissie is an OCD advocate and can help the group talk about ways to overcome stigma and continue on your journey of recovery.

*Due to the potentially sensitive issues that will be addressed in this group (e.g., harm obsessions, sexual obsessions, contamination and hygiene-related issues), participation will be limited to adults over 18 years of age.  Individuals with all types of OCD are welcome to attend.  Participants are encouraged to bring exposure materials to this session, you will be advised ahead of time when these tools will be required (e.g., digital voice recorders, smart phones, contaminated objects, feared objects, notebooks for exposure, triggering pictures, etc.).  Exposures will primarily be self-directed but will be facilitated by Lori Johnson and support by Chrissie Hodges. *In order to reserve adequate time for exposure, off-topic discussion will not be permitted.
