Intrusive Thoughts aka “Pure OCD” – Kimberley Quinlan LMFT
Specializing in treating clients whose self-judgement of their thoughts results in obsession and compulsions, Kimberley sits down with Paul and talks about the different forms OCD can take and how to treat it or support someone you love without enabling their compulsions. She and Paul also play a game she plays with clients called “One Up” where they try to outdo each other in sharing “disgusting” things that pop into their brains to show we all have thoughts pop into our heads that make us uncomfortable and laughing about it instead of judging it is the healthy response. Be forewarned, some of the stuff they share might be considered offensive or too intense for some listeners.
