I was extremely nervous in the few minutes leading up to my first appointment but Francisco made me feel like I came to the right place. Within a few minutes I felt validated and comfortable because I knew he was there to help free of judgment.
My therapist is very good at helping me to see the ocd more clearly for what it is. Just thoughts, that I do not have to engage or take deeper meaning from. They are just thoughts. I am seeing better how the ocd changes it up a lot in order to keep getting to me so I will do the compulsions. Paulina is helping me see that. It’s hard doing the erp & it’s hard obsessing & doing the compulsions. Little steps of progress are still steps of progress all the same.
NOCD and Mary have absolutely revolutionized my life. Therapy has allowed me to take back my life. I am actually living, doing things I enjoy with the people I love with minimal disruption from my intrusive thoughts. I was buried under my OCD for so long, and I finally feel like I have come up for air. I am getting to know this different version of myself, and I cannot tell you how liberating it is to know that life outside of OCD exists and is beautiful.
We are parents of an adolescent who is not ready to get help. This session was an educational session for us. The therapist was very knowledgeable and supportive. It was eye-opening to learn how some of our behaviors are actually accommodating our son's OCD. We will keep working to try to get him to get help!
Mary Beth is awesome. She was super flexible when my partner wanted to be part of the session for support. She’s also ALWAYS mindful about ensuring I’m not too triggered in sessions. I appreciate that. (Also, my partner and I are both autistic and she works well with our personalities and learning style).
Cathy is a shining light in the otherwise dark skies of OCD. She makes me feel like I can live a good life without reassuring me in a way that is bad for my OCD. She really cares about every aspect of my life. I will be forever grateful to her.
Finally!!! I feel like I’m getting somewhere!!! For years I’ve been going to therapists that have never been able to really connect to because they never fully understood my experiences. But finally after so much wasted effort and countless pointless conversations I’m able to feel good about getting help. That has been such an amazing help in the process of getting through my struggle
My daughter started seeing Kathryn Ciraolo when she turned 5. She was excessively worried and upset about being sticky or slimy after eating, even after washing her hands. Later she worried about putting on sunscreen or bug spray. Some days she would spend several hours being worried. She also developed motor tics, such as scrunching up her face over and over. I am happy to report that after about 4 months of therapy with Kathryn, she was dramatically better. We ended therapy after 6 months, and in the 3 months after the end of therapy, her motor tics are completely gone, and she’s had only one mild instance of OCD. She may be bothered by OCD again, but if it happens, Kathryn has given us the tools to handle it. If it ever gets bad again, we know how to seek help. So far, however, she is doing great. We have our happy, carefree, playful, and creative daughter back again. Thank you, Kathryn!!
My therapist is the right amount of stern and caring. I finally feel like i'm not the only one in the world who deals with these things. She has the right training, experience, and tools to help me navigate life in uncertainty without letting it control me. Im looking forward to the hard work we will do together. Finally have hope instead of confusion in dropping the battle in my mind. Thanks to Raelee (my therapist) and nocd for helping people who think they are alone in this experience of OCD that might not look like what everyone thinks it does.
I practiced driving car with my therapist Erin, because of the OCD problem I'm not driving till now I'm scared to drive but today I took the switch car, I went down in the parking lot of the apartment with talking with Erin on the zoom phone she stayed with me on the phone then I opened the car door I sat in the car, I switched on the car, I started driving, first I backup the car from the spot then I drove one round in the parking lot, then I came back and parked in the same spot, I was so scared but at the same time I was happy because I did it, we still on the zoom phone talking then we closed the phone so I just want to say, thank you Erin, you are the best, she let me drive, thank you thank you with my love 🙏🥰
My therapist is great, helped with routine maintenance and gave new erp suggestions. It’s been 4-5 months working with her , I can say with her help a lot of my ocd symptoms have drastically reduced ! I still have moments of uncertainty but I know it’s only ocd .
This is such new and scary territory for me . I even had several moments where I began crying bc of unearthed/revisited traumas and Camille was super understanding and allowed there to be space for me to feel the emotions that were presenting themselves .
I absolutely love my therapist Tiffany Flores. I feel like she listens and really understands what I am going through and what I am struggling with. I was recently diagnosed with OCD and it has been a tough thing to accept but she has really help me understand what OCD is all about and more importantly she is giving me the tools I need to deal with my intrusive thoughts. It has not been an easy process but since starting therapy sessions with her I have seen progress and that feels amazing.
Stephanie has been so kind and helpful in my OCD journey. She is the first therapist I felt comfortable opening up about my OCD with. She made me feel heard and not judged. I am forever grateful to have met her and I highly recommend her for anyone with OCD. She gives the best advice and always has your best interest at heart. She makes ERP fun. 💖💖💖💖💖
I had a block of sessions with No OCD, they were useful and Michael was great. However, I finished my payment plan so I had nothing left to pay for. 3 months laters, I randomly got billed by No OCD with no warning of explanation. I spoke to the payments team, who said due to an error on the part of No OCD, the invoicing for a session had been delayed for 3 months. I asked for the session to be refunded, as clearly thats not the way you should treat your customers, but they were absolutely not interested in even discussing that idea. I'm left feeling very disapointed, I hadn't budgeted for the payment to hit my account, and I think billing customers 3 months late is unacceptable, let alone with zero communication.
Excellent session!!! It's making more sense to me the purpose of ERP. I will do what I have to be free of this torment of compulsions. I love how my therapist understands and patiently helps me remember what I was talking about(because, I have the worst memory)after an interruption, which there were alot yesterday. So pleased!!!
My therapist Erin Crowley, she's excellent therapist, I like the way she's talking to me, she's listening to me carefully when I'm talking on my problem about OCD and other problems in my life, I feel very comfortable when I'm talking to her and as a person she's very nice sweet and happy person, I like her I like her character too, thank you, have a good day.
Ross Zellner was empathetic, understanding, and respectful! For once I actually felt like i am on my way to designing an action plan to tackle OCD that may actually work! Ross reassured me that i CAN beat this though it will take work and effort from me. But knowing that i will not do this all alone but rather i have someone that actually understands me, helping me fight, is TRULY encouraging and gave me hope!
My mind wanted to focus on the negative during session. Paulina is very good at keeping the focus on not perfection & in normalizing having times where the ocd is worse & that that is not a failure. I really like how she puts it as the ocd is throwing a tantrum to get me to do a compulsion. Like a two year old throwing a tantrum. I remember two years old tantrums from raising my kids & they are not logical or predictable. The tantrum just wants it’s way & will pull out all the stops in order to get it. I can see the ocd as being like that since I have started working on sitting with the thoughts, feelings & emotions that come up with it.
Paulette is a fantastic therapist who always meets me where I am at that day--whether it is a good or bad day. I never feel judged or rushed. I am 200x better than I was when I first started therapy and it has only been a couple months-- Paulette made that possible!!
Always allows me get out what I need to say and helps me remain rational about what is going on. Breaks things down for me to fully understand and yet not feel silly for asking for a break down. Also has taught me so many tricks to help me and I’ve learned so much about myself.
Before NOCD I had a therapist who pushed me too hard and with little tracking. I was just spinning in anxiety for a very long time instead of progressing. Now, with my NOCD therapist, Kai, from day one, we have been moving gently, yet consistently and clearly, through my OCD therapy to where I am very much feeling the other side of things. It feels like getting my life back, but better.
Robert has been extremely helpful in helping me manage my intrusive thoughts and helping me identify struggles in my life that I didn’t even recognize as OCD. He has helped me with my OCD but also anxiety and depression. I’m thankful for his guidance.
In the past when I didn’t know I had OCD therapists would reassure my fears weren’t real in sessions. Then I would keep going to sessions to get more reassurance. Jerilyn is wonderful at what she does. She does not reassure me that my fears are not real but instead helps me to be able to walk with the uncertainty of life. This is golden ✨ I think getting ERP therapy if you have OCD is *essential* because it is so different from other kinds of therapy and the therapists are equipped to help you get better!!! ❤️
