Chris Trondsen

Behavioral Therapist, The Gateway Institute
Chris Trondsen was diagnosed with OCD when he was 20 years old but suffered years before that.  Contamination OCD as well as Checking OCD were the main types of OCD he suffered with.  He received treatment at starting at age 20 at The OCD Center of Los Angeles under Tom Corboy and Karen Pickett and after 14 months of behavioral treatment, he was able to leave therapy and finish controlling his OCD on his own.  Now, 9 years later, he has had almost no problems with his OCD and is able to live an almost OCD-free and successful life using the tools he learned in OCD Treatment.
