OCD is not an adjective.
If you or a loved one is living with OCD, you know first-hand that it is not a choice, a preference, or a quirky personality trait.
This medical brain disorder can be debilitating, frightening, and all-consuming — and yet, at CFCE we know that YOU are more than your OCD.
This therapeutic support group is for Teens (ages 13-18) and Adults (ages 19+) who are looking for self-empowering pratical strategies and peer support to find the freedom in believing that you are more than your OCD.

What is a “Closed” Group for Teens?
The Teen Group will be ‘closed’ to new members upon the start of a 6-week cycle. This will promote felt safety, trust, and rapport among teen group members. Members are welcome to join and stay for as many consecutive 6-week cycles as are helpful to you!
What is an “Open” Group for Adults?
The Adult Group will be ‘open’ to new members during each weekly session, with the option to ‘pay as you go’. This will promote flexibility for busy schedules and promote work/life/health balance. Members are encouraged to attend regularly in order to build connections with fellow participants, and we welcome you to join as many sessions as are helpful to you!
