Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) can be a debilitating condition, affecting an estimated 1-3% of the population. But for those struggling with OCD in Barrie, Ontario, there's a beacon of hope: OCD North.

Founded by Merrisa Little, a specialist trained in the gold-standard treatment for OCD – Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) – OCD North provides a dedicated and expert environment for recovery.

Filling the gap in OCD treatment

Merrisa recognized a significant gap in mental health care – a lack of professionals specializing in OCD treatment.

This clinic was and still is the best therapy I have ever received. To have people who truly understand the different ways OCD can manifest is so so important, especially when you don't feel comfortable talking with anyone else. They helped make my OCD way more manageable, until my time here I did not even realize all the ways OCD was controlling my life choices.

While many therapists have a basic understanding of OCD treatment, they lack the in-depth understanding and specific training required for effective intervention. This struggle to find an OCD expert can leave individuals feeling lost and discouraged.

Marissa wanted to change that.
