OCD Treatment with Skycloud Health

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common and often misunderstood mental health condition. Those with OCD have a combination of distressing thoughts and unhealthy coping behaviors that can negatively affect their quality of life.

OCD can be a difficult, daily challenge. But OCD responds well to treatment. Fill out a form to get started. 

Why Choose Skycloud Mental Health?

Obsessive compulsive disorder is treatable. But part of treatment involves reaching out to someone you connect to – someone that you know has your best interests in mind.

At Skycloud Mental Health, we’ve chosen to operate as a primarily telepsychiatry practice. We chose this way of operating before COVID and before remote work was more common, because we believe that it has advantages for our patients – including those with OCD. With telepsychiatry, you can be located anywhere within Minnesota, Washington, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, or Oregon (where we are licensed to practice) and know that you have someone to call in a place that is comfortable for you.

We are also a team of PMHNPs, also known as “Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners.” PMHNPs are able to provide comprehensive psychiatric services, but with a style of care that our patients truly appreciate. 

About Our Psychiatric Treatments for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Skycloud Mental Health is here to support you throughout your OCD recovery. We are able to offer several services that support your ability to manage OCD and cope with any issues that OCD may have caused. Some of our treatment options include:

      • Psychiatric Evaluation
      • Psychotherapy
      • Medication Management
      • Pharmacogenomic Analysis

If you’re looking for mental health support for your obsessive compulsive disorder, Skycloud Mental Health is available to help. 

What is OCD?

Obsessive compulsive disorder is a mental health condition. It involves what the mental health word calls “obsessions.” This term has a different meaning in the mental health world than it does in casual speech. Most people use the term “obsessions” to mean “topics a person is very interested in.” 

But in the mental health world, psychologists and psychiatrists use “obsessions” to mean “recurring and intrusive thoughts that cause distress.” Most people with obsessions do not have interest in the topic thoughts, but struggle with them anyway, and experience stress every time they occur. Examples of these thoughts may include:

      • Thoughts about germs/contamination
      • Thoughts about harming oneself or others.
      • Thoughts about being a “sinner” or “deviant” 
      • Thoughts about losing control.
      • Thoughts about engaging in an illegal act.
      • Thoughts about forgetting or losing something important. 

When someone has OCD, these “obsessions” are unwanted and unrelated to their personality, so they cause distress. But they keep coming back, and they become harder and harder to avoid. 

Over time, a patient with OCD may discover that there is a behavior that reduces their distress. For example:

      • Washing hands makes them fear germs less.
      • Checking the stove often until they feel comfortable that it’s off.
      • Asking themselves “do I want to hurt this person?” until you feel satisfied it’s a “no.”
      • Putting things in some sort of order to feel like you have control over your surroundings.

These behaviors become the only thing that a person can do to relieve some of the stress of the thoughts, and so they become “compulsions” – a behavior that a person feels they absolutely must do, each and every time they have the intrusive thought.

There are many ways that a person can experience obsessive compulsive disorder, from the different thoughts a person may have to the compulsions they use to help relieve the stress. Not everyone with OCD will realize they have the condition.
