Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale [ Time Frame: Post-treatment, 6 weeks after baseline ]
    Participant OCD severity is measured with Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale over the course of their time in the study. Severity is measured at baseline (week 1), mid (week 3), and post (week 6) participation in ERP over the course of 6 weeks. Severity on the scale is measured based on a score range of 0-40. Participants with scores of 0-13 are considered to have mild symptoms. Scores of 14-25 are considered moderate. 26-34 are considered to be moderate-severe. 35-40 are considered to be very severe.
