Obsessed was a reality television show that aired on A&E from 2009 to 2010. It was centered around individuals who were struggling with severe anxiety disorders, phobias, and other related mental health issues. The show followed the journey of these individuals as they learned to manage their conditions through therapy sessions with licensed clinical psychologist John Tsilimparis. Each episode featured two individuals who were struggling with different anxiety-related disorders, such as hoarding, OCD, and panic attacks.

He worked with the participants to help them identify the root causes of their anxiety and develop coping strategies to manage their symptoms. His approach was focused on empowering the participants and helping them take control of their lives.

In addition to therapy sessions, the show also featured Lainee Rhodes, an organizing expert who helped individuals struggling with hoarding disorders. She worked with the participants to teach them how to declutter and organize their homes, which helped reduce their anxiety levels and improve their overall quality of life.
