Type: Professionally Assisted Group


Fairfield County OCD Support Group is a professionally assisted OCD support group organized and moderated by two prominent mental health professionals.

Its mission is to provide an informative group forum which can provide a supportive, informal, empathetic environment for people coping with OCD.

The group consists of individuals who are OCD sufferers. Usually, these individuals include those who are currently seeking treatment and those who have recovered from their OCD and are presently managing their symptoms. In addition, family members and friends of those who are suffering from OCD are also welcome to participate. In our meetings, we discuss specific topics, such as symptoms, cognitive behavior therapy, medication, etc.

The objective of this support group is to be informational, not therapeutic.

Are you sick and tired of playing mental ping pong all day? Have you searched hundreds of different therapists? Have you googled endlessly asking for answers on how to get better from OCD? I get it, I have been there and so has everyone in our support group. We call our group, OCD Survivors and Thrivers for a reason and that is because with the support from one another, we have a fighting chance to live a meaningful and impactful life. If you are struggling with OCD and want to connect with others who are going through the same journey that you are on, then this is the group for you. We come from all different backgrounds and bring different types of OCD experiences to light. These meetings follow a proven and effective OCD support group format adopted from The Anxiety and OCD Treatment Center of Philadelphia. This format is the result of over 2 decades of developing, iterating, and refining the operation of an effective OCD specific support group.

First Wednesday of each month from 7:00PM – 8:30PM in a private meeting room at the Darien Public Library.

Hi, I am Eugenia Dansinghani a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I have a private practice in Middletown, CT. I specialize in working with people of all ages but with a special interest in working with children and adolescents/young adults who suffer from OCD/Anxiety Disorder. I received my Masters in Clinical Social Work at Fordham University in New York and also graduated from the BTTI Program from the International OCD Foundation. I use a lot of cognitive therapy along with exposure therapy and I have also been through my own personal struggle with OCD in the past. So when my patients come to see me I truly can understand what it feels like to have OCD and how freeing and wonderful it is when you fight and get past the OCD!
