Community Visits

Working with anxiety sufferers over the years, CalmOCD understands that anxiety triggers are everywhere!

Therapists can meet patients in settings where OCD has made it nearly impossible for them to function or live normally without overwhelming anxiety. Often, patients have spent years avoiding the triggers within the environment so the therapist can offer support during these challenging situations by providing therapy sessions outside of the typical office setting.


CalmOCD will help families devise a plan to respond to their loved ones in a supportive way without participating in their OCD.

There is so much value in these experiences because patients have a therapist to walk them through the exposure experience and offer reminders of how to respond to their obsessions and how to cope with increasing anxiety. Having a therapist there the first few times of exposure can help the OCD sufferer gain confidence in facing things they have been avoiding, and in turn, will demonstrate they can conquer them.


CalmOCD can meet patients in a variety of settings within the community. Below is a list of common community exposure examples:
