When not busy in the world of natural medicine, Dr. Rothenberg can be found spending time with family and friends, on the ballroom dance floor, puttering around the art table or playing her guitar. If asked, she would say her greatest contribution in life is the three beautiful, sensitive, creative people she has raised.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common psychiatric diagnosis in both children and adults where unwanted, intrusive thoughts, images, and attendant need to take action have a serious impact on a person’s quality of life. OCD is often chronic or intermittent, and while current medical treatment including pharmaceuticals and therapy are at least somewhat effective for some, homeopathy and other supportive natural medicine approaches offer other viable options.
