SHINING WITH ADHD 

EPISODE #149: Understanding Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and ADHD with Therapist Natasha Daniels

3/27/2024

SUMMARY

In our culture, we hear the term “OCD” thrown around a lot. “I’m so OCD about…” While this isn’t intended for harm, it does foster confusion about what it really means to have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. It’s far more nuanced than the common idea of constant hand-washing or organization. OCD can be common in kids with ADHD, so in today’s episode, we talk with OCD therapist Natasha Daniels to hear from her 20+ years of experience with treating OCD. From understanding the diagnosis to getting the right treatment, Natasha shares what every parent needs to know to support their kids.
