Founded in June 2022 with a mission to provide evidence-based treatment to people dealing with OCD and related disorders. OCD Wellness was born out of a deep passion to raise awareness about OCD and debunk stereotypes surrounding the disorder.
April, the founder of OCD Wellness, understands the challenge of seeking treatment for OCD and wanted to create a safe space where people could find the support they need. Authenticity, integrity, and teamwork are at the core of OCD Wellness, and April ensures that these values are reflected in all interactions.
Bringing everything together with our logo that symbolizes wellness, strength, and empathy.
OCD Wellness supports individuals in finding their inner strength and resilience during their journey with OCD. We see the importance of externalizing OCD from the individual. With an empathetic approach, we provide evidence-based learning and tools for the individual to become an expert in OCD.
OCD Wellness was founded on the principle of supporting individuals and families in regaining their life and learning how to live well with OCD, using an evidence-based, gold-standard approach. We ensure individuals are provided with an empathetic, educational, and empowering environment, met with integrity and respect.
OCD Wellness is passionate and dedicated to bridging the gap in services to support individuals and families through their OCD journey. We strive to create a safe space for individuals to discover their strength and resilience, through well-informed, hands-on, and accountable care.
