8 year old develops repetitive behaviors

Question

My 8 year old daughter has recently developed multiple OCD like behaviors. (Ie...shutting doors a certain way, over use of hand sanitizer, having to turn lights on and off). I feel this all started when I was going through a very stressful and anxious time myself but now I can't seem to get her to stop. I've read some of your answers about ignoring the behavior, but that doesn't seem to work. I feel horrible for her. She said she has to do it or she feel yucky. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
