Supportive Therapy for Perfectionism and OCD

Embrace Imperfection: Overcoming OCD and Perfectionism

At Elite Psychology and Wellness in Scottsdale Arizona we work with many individuals who have high levels of perfectionism because they are high achievers and have a strong passion to succeed. Whether we are working with a current or former athlete, entrepreneur, or with a stay at home mom who wants to be the best they can, we know the internal stressors individuals put on themselves.

Certain fears and stress-related pressures to succeed or to be the best can cause you to feel bad about yourself. You start to lose concentration and motivation. You begin to have increased feelings of anxiety and depression. You start to question yourself regularly or you continue to push yourself to succeed while not trusting yourself. This can cause an increase in mood related issues, illness or injury. You start to tell yourself that you are not good enough. And thoughts start to spiral and your motivation and determination starts to decrease. You find yourself not performing in the way that you used to or you find yourself not being able to cope with things the way you once did. And now you find yourself needing help to turn it around.

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking perfection, but in embracing imperfection."
