Welcome to our third and final session with real patient “Sophie.” This is part 4 of a 4-part series featuring Dr. Reid Wilson (Director of the Anxiety Disorders Treatment Center) as our expert consultant in helping “Sophie” deal with and overcome her anxiety and OCD.

In this episode we discuss the difference between functional and distress-related goals, redirecting attention to avoid compulsions, staying productive when anxious, how holding onto process can help us hold onto hope, and so much more!

If you or anyone you know suffers from anxiety and/or OCD we think you will not only enjoy this episode but come away with multiple effective and actionable strategies for dealing with and thriving through these seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
