questions about Don Grothoff or ocd or obsessive compulsive disorderI know what you’re probably thinking: “OCD is so powerful and controlling I will never be able to overcome it!”

The answer here is yes OCD does feel overwhelming and powerful but it really is just a big bully that can be overcome. We can help.


Understanding OCD

To understand how OCD works, think about a mosquito bite. When you get bitten by a mosquito, it itches, so to make it feel better you scratch. While you scratch the bite it feels great, but as soon as you stop scratching, the itching gets worse. That’s how OCD plays out. When a child with OCD feels anxious he’ll do something to fix it temporarily, but that ritual makes it worse over time.

What other say:

From the Holistic Wellness Center in Ft. Mill, SC where I work with their patience I get testimonials…

“Let me start by saying that I was a HOT MESS when I first came to this center. Sleep-deprived, anxious, depressed, confused – turns out I had a host of symptoms laying under the surface (thyroid issues, hormone imbalances, zinc deficits, etc.) that had been “misdiagnosed” by previous doctors. I LITERALLY had blood work done a week before I came here, and conventional medicine didn’t see anything wrong! When I say that these guys get at the underlying symptoms, they will uncover just about everything you can think of and more. It will blow your mind! Dr. Boyle is brilliant, and I’m so grateful for everything he has done for me. Brittany, Mikela, Mary Beth, Katie – these guys have all been so compassionate and gracious. Also, I am incredibly grateful for Don, the EFT instructor – those sessions helped me in remarkable ways. While I still have work to do with my health goals, I’m in a much better place than when I first started – and I’m more prepared for the road ahead. Thank you HWC!”

— E.D. patient of Holistic Wellness Center

“…I’m feeling more peace and contentment with where I am at and where I am going. Your comments about contrast and about the process/journey of accomplishing goals/desires were so helpful. To start realizing I am on a journey and I don’t have to be at the destination right now but have time to get there and should take the time to get is there is amazing. I’m learning how to enjoy and appreciate the journey.”

MS from Texas

“I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you and for you to be able to teach me some life altering techniques and ways to improve my life. You are very intuitive and helpful.”
