Is it OCD?

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is categorized as a mental health disorder that can affect people of all ages and walks of life that get caught in a cycle of obsession and compulsion. Think of obsessions as intrusive thoughts, images, or feelings that are unwanted and don’t easily go away.  It is the obsessive thought patterns that typically as a result drive compulsive behaviors in an attempt to manage or decrease the mental distress.

Typically, OCD is shown to create a hyper-connectivity between regions of the brain that trigger the obsessive thoughts and the resulting compulsive behavior.

If you believe that you are struggling with symptoms of OCD, our team can help.  Here at Serenity Zone, we take a comprehensive clinical approach to detecting the root cause of your difficulties.

Neurofeedback brain training is an FDA approved therapy that trains the brain and enhances brainwave function. It has been clinically shown to  improve how the brain processes incoming stimulus for improved health and wellbeing.

Here at Serenity Zone

We use the most evidence based clinical assessment and neuroimaging technology (QEEG) to map the brain. This allows us to  discover how each individual’s brain is functioning to determine if it is dysregulated and contributing to their symptoms.

Once we determine where the affected areas are, we create a corrective plan of care using the most cutting-edge neurotherapies and brain training tools to optimize the exact networks and pathways of the brain. This allows function to improve so the person can enjoy greater clarity, connection, mood, memory, and engagement in their life.

Care plans will typically include a combination of one or more of the following corrective and natural brain health modalities:

Psychotherapy, Braincore Neurofeedback, Biofeedback Stress Management, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, Light Therapy, Relaxation Therapy, Autogenic Training, and Individual or Group Counseling.

This comprehensive approach to your health,  delivers the correction, skills and habits needed to continue improvement so you can optimize your health and life.
