Pediatric OCD Therapist in Los Angeles

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) disrupts lives, but your family doesn’t have to be controlled by it. A and J Behavioral Health helps children with OCD get relief from their symptoms and develop healthier behavior patterns—and we educate adults on how they can aid their child’s journey to wellness. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment with a qualified pediatric OCD therapist in Los Angeles.

When Your Child Has OCD

Since OCD can present in a variety of ways, a diagnosis must be carefully considered. It is important to understand that children with OCD may display a wide range of symptoms, including:

  • Need for Symmetry and Order
  • Fear of Germs and Dirt
  • Preoccupation with Bodily Waste
  • Fear of Illness or Harm
  • Preoccupation with Lucky & Unlucky Numbers
  • Intrusive Words & Sounds

However, exhibiting any of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily indicate OCD. Likewise, a child may need OCD treatment and exhibit none of the symptoms listed here. We approach every patient as a unique case to provide the care that is right for them. Request a free initial consultation with our OCD counseling team to learn more.

How Treatment Works

Our obsessive-compulsive disorder therapy focuses on safe exposure and gentle response prevention. Children are taught to let their anxiety and obsessive thoughts pass through them without engaging in disruptive rituals or compulsions. In some cases, we recommend behavioral therapy in conjunction with serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SRI) medication to help patients take control of their actions. Talk to our team of compassionate therapists to learn more.

Contact us to schedule OCD counseling for your child. Our team of compassionate therapists is here to provide your child with the highest level of treatment. We look forward to meeting you and your child.
