Red Flags to Watch for When Working with an Anxiety or OCD Therapist

Not all therapy is the same. Not all therapists are the same. And when it comes to anxiety and OCD you really want to get it right the first time. But many parents don’t know what to look for and some don’t even realize warning bells should be going off.

Learn what red flags to watch out for when picking an anxiety or OCD therapist for your child or teen. Often parents miss the warning signs.
