A Tale Of Vanishing OCD In A Short Span Of Time


Last year Solbi, 5 year old girl, walked into my clinic with her mom. She was dealing with compulsive hand washing. There were cracks on her hands because of constant hand washing. She had fear and disgust for dirt. She didn’t like to shake hands or touching surfaces like door knobs or public washrooms. There was a great fear of robbers entering her home.

It was a really a struggle as parents were not able to understand her repetitive behaviors.
