OCD is a debilitating condition that impacts the lives of millions and causes significant distress. At NOCD, we provide specialized treatment to help people with OCD get better. But we also know that other OCD-related disorders frequently affect people’s lives and get in the way of treatment progress – or even prevent them from getting treatment at all.

Without managing OCD-related disorders, most people suffering from them in addition to OCD are unable to get better. Specialized treatment for these disorders is an essential part of an overall treatment plan for OCD.

We’re committed to getting people the right care, at the right time, and in the right setting to treat the whole person. That’s why we’re proud to expand our members’ care to include effective, convenient, and affordable treatment for disorders related to OCD.

NOCD therapists now treat Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs) – which includes Trichotillomania (hair pulling) and Dermatillomania (skin picking) – Hoarding Disorder, and Tic Disorder.

These conditions are among the most misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and mistreated groups of disorders. With specialized treatment and support, many people can reduce symptoms, improve their quality of life, and become more successful on their OCD treatment journey.

NOCD therapists provide evidence-based treatment through face-to-face video therapy sessions, with support between sessions, so you’re never alone. We even partner with many insurance providers to make treatment more affordable.

Licensed Therapist, MA

I started as a therapist over 14 years ago, working in different mental health environments. Many people with OCD that weren't being treated for it crossed my path and weren't getting better. I decided that I wanted to help people with OCD, so I became an OCD therapist, and eventually, a clinical supervisor. I treated people using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and saw people get better day in and day out. I continue to use ERP because nothing is more effective in treating OCD.

When I started treating OCD, I quickly realized how much this type of work means to me because I had to learn how to be okay with discomfort and uncertainty myself. I’ve been practicing as a licensed therapist since 2016. My graduate work is in mental health counseling, and I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy because it’s the gold standard of OCD treatment.

Licensed Therapist, MA

I have personally struggled with OCD and know what it's like to feel controlled by intrusive thoughts and compulsions, and to also overcome it using the proper therapy. I’ve been a licensed therapist since 2017. I have an M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and practice Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. I know by experience how effective ERP is in treating OCD symptoms.
