Taylor Newendorp

Taylor Newendorp

Network Clinical Training Director

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.

Licensed Therapist, MS

As a therapist, first and foremost, I believe in meeting you where you're at. I can have a plan, but that means nothing without understanding where you are. That will help us navigate where to go and how to prioritize. A fun fact about me: I have a dog named Emma. She's a Scoodle (Scottie and poodle mix). Chances are you'll hear her at some point, because she's usually under my desk. I'm kind of her emotional support human.

Sandra Stubbs

Sandra Stubbs

Licensed Therapist, LPC

I take an integrative approach to treating OCD. I like to get to know people through conversation. I'm a doctor of psychology, so members will learn quite a bit of information regarding their mental well-being during our interactions. As a therapist, I understand the importance of self-care. When I'm not working, I like to take long walks, play the piano, sing, and converse with others.

Licensed Therapist, Psychologist

I'm a straightforward and compassionate therapist. My approach is collaborative. I'll go at a pace that's comfortable but challenging for you. I enjoy doing ERP (Exposure and Response Prevention) because I see the reduction of suffering within a relatively short time. People with OCD are often talented and engaging individuals who are a joy to work with. I like seeing my members get their lives back — OCD is no longer in the driver's seat, and they have more freedom. My other focus areas include eating disorders and coming-out issues.

Having spent over a decade treating people with various disorders, I find that my experience working with families helps me a great deal when treating OCD. Family relationships can play a crucial role in exacerbating OCD, but that’s just one aspect I look at during treatment. I also have experience working with at-risk youths and at a local community health center.

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.

Ursula Wright

Licensed Therapist, LCSW

I’m going on a decade of experience as a licensed social worker, treating mood & anxiety disorders, addiction, domestic violence, and OCD. I’ve learned that people struggling with disorders have a hard time finding access to a professional diagnosis. NOCD changes that. As a specialized OCD therapist, I’ll provide you with a diagnosis and, if you show signs of OCD, I’ll use the most trusted method in treating OCD called Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. ERP is well-researched and proven to work.

Licensed Therapist, LMHC

I grew up in a household with OCD. I know how much distress OCD and anxiety can bring, and I'm passionate about helping people with OCD gain access to care in an understanding environment. You don't have to walk in feeling strong or brave; you just have to be open and willing to try. All feelings are allowed to exist, and you can learn to be present with your feelings. In addition to OCD, I treat general anxiety, social anxiety, panic disorder, body dysmorphia, phobias (with a special interest in emetophobia), and health anxiety.

Licensed Therapist, MA

I've had my fair share of intrusive thoughts. I recall having thoughts of harm about my newborn and how upsetting it can be to experience them. But I also know how to deal with them now. I'm here to teach you how to treat intrusive thoughts like everyday thoughts, to learn how to just let them pass by. We’ll build a strong relationship founded on trust and safety so you feel comfortable sharing your thoughts with me. I can also be a little silly and use humor to release tensions during sessions.

Benjamin Harris

Benjamin Harris

Licensed Therapist, MA

I would describe myself as a kind-hearted drill sergeant. I bring compassion, understanding, and support to the therapy room, but I am also firm and direct. You can expect loads of sarcasm and humor. If we can laugh at OCD, it loses much of its power. After years of training and experience, I realized I had experienced obsessive compulsive tendencies since I was a child. These experiences help me understand where members are coming from, and work with them to develop a creative treatment plan that gets the results they want.

Theresa Barton

Theresa Barton

Licensed Therapist, LMHC

Having OCD makes a person think that their intrusive thoughts are important and mean something about their character. These thoughts feel real and even scare people into thinking they can act on them. But intrusive thoughts are not a reflection of who you are, and because of that, there’s no genuine intention of wanting to make your thoughts real. But it’s not that easy to allow intrusive thoughts to simply pass by. I’ll show you how to face them and not rely on compulsions to relieve the anxiety that they cause. I happen to be a board-certified coach. Motivating people is second nature to me. The key to our sessions is that I will look to tap into what’s already inside you, that willingness to work and overcome challenges. I will walk beside you as you embark on your journey to feeling better in all aspects of your life.

Bonnie Grossman

Licensed Therapist, LPC

You need to know that the intrusive thoughts you're experiencing are not who you are and don't dictate your values and beliefs. I understand that you may be nervous about sharing your OCD thoughts or feel ashamed to even have them. I'll create an environment that makes you feel safe to open up. You need an ERP therapist that will listen to you without judgment. I want to be that therapist for you. It's essential that we have open communication during our time, and that includes me being clear to you on what's going on during sessions. Members describe me as warm, compassionate, and understanding. I'm here to support you, so together, we can break you away from the hold that OCD has on you so that you can get your life back on track.

April Kilduff

April Kilduff

Licensed Therapist, MA

I'm passionate about helping people obtain a proper diagnosis and evidence-based therapy. I've seen it change so many lives. Right now, OCD is offering you short-term relief in exchange for long-term discomfort. In OCD therapy, we want to flip that. If you're going to be uncomfortable, let's make it productive. ERP (Exposure and Response Prevention) may produce short-term discomfort, but it can give you the long-term relief you're seeking. My other areas of professional focus include anxiety disorders and the autism spectrum.

Human nature is to avoid the things that make us uncomfortable. OCD therapy is going to feel uncomfortable — you're no longer avoiding the things you used to avoid. It's like physical therapy: You have to do some work, but it can be life-changing. As a therapist, I'm relaxed, warm, and welcoming. I will educate you on the process and goal of ERP (Exposure and Response Prevention), an effective model that will help you. My other areas of professional focus include anxiety, depression, trauma, trichotillomania and BFRBs (body-focused repetitive behaviors), and adjustment disorder.

After giving birth to my two children, I experienced the type of OCD-like symptoms that many women experience, including having intrusive thoughts of harming who I love. I became motivated to go deeper into learning how to treat OCD. During sessions, you’ll be asked to share your OCD experiences in confidence, but I know how hard it is to explain to someone what your OCD is like. I’ll create a non-judgemental space so you can disclose everything that’s affecting you, Members describe me as warm, direct, and honest. I call myself “solution-focused,” but when there’s an opportunity to have a little fun during a session, I’ll take it. I like to stay in touch with current research and only use treatment proven to work. Together, we’ll bring you to a place of better control and a lot more freedom.

Camille Rodriguez

Camille Rodriguez

Licensed Therapist, LCSW

I became a therapist because I enjoy helping others, empowering those I work with by providing them with practical tools to help people reach their goals. Once you become confident in using ERP tools during treatment, you'll be able to use them whenever OCD strikes. But ERP treatment requires you to share your intrusive thoughts and face your fears. I'll provide you with a safe space to explore and work with my support and guidance by your side. Self-discovery is a big part of treatment. That means you'll have to step outside of your comfort zone from time to time, but I can help you build that inner confidence needed to succeed. Members find me to be warm and patient and appreciate that I challenged them at the proper time. I want you to know that you are stronger than you may think, and I can't wait to help you get your life back.

I love getting to the end of treatment and celebrating the great strides the people I work with have made. I also specialize in treating general anxiety, body-focused repetitive behaviors, and depression.

Members will feel supported and encouraged throughout this process. Outside of work, I like spending my free time with family, friends, and my two dogs. I enjoy cooking as a form of self-care and love all things spicy! I played collegiate softball at Saint Leo University, which is where I met my husband.

As a therapist, my approach is to meet you where you are today. Then, through the evidence-based practice of ERP, I will provide the support and tools to empower you to overcome your thoughts and urges and pursue the life you truly want for yourself. Outside of work, I’m equal parts book nerd and nature lover. I enjoy being by the water, going to the beach, rock hunting, hiking, fishing, and getting out in nature. I also love board games, books, painting, coloring, drawing, writing poetry, and watching TV (horror movies, true crime shows, and ridiculous stand-up comedy are my favorites).

As a therapist, I'm conversational and laid-back, but when it comes to addressing OCD, I'm equally direct and ready to challenge things. I aim to help my members feel comfortable, and I'm always asking questions to better understand their experience. OCD therapy will encourage you to step outside of your comfort zone while helping you celebrate every step taken. In addition to OCD, I focus on trauma, PTSD, depression, and anxiety. I find that most people have a history with at least one of those areas.

I like to collaborate with my members to develop a plan specific to the individual's needs as I implement evidence-based ERP strategies to achieve results. I am warm and compassionate, and I use humor throughout the treatment process. I find that this helps members feel comfortable and supported while I actively encourage them to lean into their discomfort and challenge OCD. I also frequently talk about the importance of self-compassion, acceptance, and living out your values. Outside of work, I love spending time with my dog, cat, and human family. I also volunteer weekly at a therapeutic horseback riding program for individuals with disabilities, and love reading and listening to music in my downtime.

Licensed Therapist, LMHC

OCD therapy is a safe, nonjudgmental space to share anything you've been experiencing and want to overcome. Facing your fears can seem like a daunting task, especially at first. We will work together to create a treatment plan, tailored to you, that will help you change your fear into empowerment. I understand that your thoughts, triggers, or compulsions are unique to you, and I want to understand your experience as well as I possibly can. Beyond OCD, I have worked extensively with people dealing with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder.

I have a pretty flexible approach to therapy. (There will be a steady flow of smiley faces in your messaging inbox that you are not obligated to respond to.) My focus allows a completely unique experience for every member. I tend to get along well with members who are very particular about details, because I care about the mapping of your OCD being accurate to your experience. The only thing more important is that you feel like you have agency throughout the entire therapy process. Outside of work, I enjoy nail art, live music, learning new things, and a totally normal and appropriate amount of video gaming.

My approach to treating OCD involves learning how OCD presents in a person's life, then building a treatment plan together—one that feels comfortable but is also challenging and can produce successful outcomes. During therapy, I'm non-judgmental and open to questions. I know this can be a scary process. I want members to feel safe and comfortable enough to share and express themselves.

Amy Seager

Amy Seager

Licensed Therapist, LISW-S

I look at a person with OCD as separate from their symptoms. OCD is not who you are. In fact, OCD is preventing you from being your true self. My approach is acceptance of the person first, then tackling the OCD with a nonjudgmental, caring stance. When I'm not doing therapy, I love birdwatching, gardening, knitting, crocheting, and reading anything I can get my hands on. Fun fact: You may see me wearing fingerless gloves during sessions—not as a fashion statement, but because I have Raynaud's Syndrome, which causes my digits to overreact to even slight chills and become painful. Although I usually try to match my gloves to my outfit, sometimes I have to grab whichever pair is available, so you may see some strange color combinations!

My approach to treating OCD is by utilizing the evidence-based practice of exposure and response prevention. We start slowly by introducing you to small situations or thoughts that trigger compulsions and actions, then carefully build up to more difficult exposures as we progress. While challenging, this will lead to greater control over your OCD, and greater control of your life in general. Aside from being a clinician, I very much enjoy music. One of my favorite hobbies involves converting popular songs into acoustic guitar performances. I am also a big movie and television buff. Dramas and thrillers are my favorite genres.

Second, I will provide high-quality ERP that will serve as a long-term solution to the difficulties you're facing. When I’m not working, I enjoy going to the beach. Living in Florida gives me many opportunities to snorkel, swim, and relax by the water. On most weekends, you will find me there.

The fact that I have experienced some of the effects of OCD makes me sympathetic to those who are suffering from it. We all have so many different experiences, but at the heart is a longing to belong, to fit in, and to enjoy our lives with those we love. Remembering that is key for me in treating people with and without OCD. When I'm not doing therapy, I love to read—anywhere, anyplace. I also enjoy traveling; I'm putting together a bucket list for my husband and me to work through once we semi-retire.

But this system is no longer serving you, and it's time to change. Together, we'll challenge it at your pace. This painful condition can be overcome with the right treatment and support. My experience in treating OCD, anxiety, and depression, can help us get a better understanding of where things become disordered and how you can best cope moving forward without compulsive behaviors.

My approach to treating OCD is to be your advocate. I want you to feel comfortable with me in our sessions, so you can feel comfortable doing ERP.

Matthew Culbreath

Licensed Therapist, M.Ed

As an OCD therapist, my approach is like that of a person-centered personal trainer. First and foremost, you'll be unconditionally accepted, appreciated, and respected. I’m guessing that OCD has told you that you’re no good, unworthy of acceptance, and should be deeply ashamed. These are lies, and I aim to help you see through them. We will meet, collaborate to decide on a target, and develop exercises to build “strength” or resilience to anxiety-evoking thoughts. You will feel in charge of your recovery; we “add more weight to the bar” only when you’re ready. Outside of work, I look forward to growing vegetables in the warm weather seasons. I have pet Shih-Tzu that strongly resembles an Ewok (from Return of the Jedi). She is full of various hijinks but really likes to steal red bell peppers from my garden.

When I say it's member-led, I mean that you will have the agency to give consent for the exercises we undertake, and it's your willingness and eagerness that will propel us toward a better, healthier, and more manageable place compared to when OCD was left untreated. Your active participation and choice in this journey are paramount.

I'll teach you to have a different relationship with your intrusive thoughts, so they no longer take over your life.

I work with people, not just a diagnosis. When I'm not at work, I am happiest outside, whether biking through city parks, hiking in the mountains, swimming at the beach, or just relaxing in a sunny spot.

Not only is feeling heard the cornerstone of building a trusting therapeutic relationship, I also believe that healing happens when a person feels like someone really 'gets it'. Outside of work, one of my favorite things to do is spend time with my dogs. They keep things interesting and fun (although chaotic at times). I believe the best life is life with a dog.

I come to our sessions ready to meet you where you're at. I'll listen to and validate your struggles, then identify how we can overcome them. I will be part of your journey — I'll be there to support, encourage, and push you when you need it. We'll work together to face feared outcomes, to sit with uncertainty, and to tolerate the unknown. With time, you'll start to see small changes that become the big life changes you dream of. Beyond OCD, I have experience treating anxiety and other mood disorders.

I have family members who've suffered significantly from OCD and anxiety. I've seen them at their worst, but I've also seen them thrive. I like to help free people from the prisons our minds can create. My approach is warm and down to earth. I will work diligently to understand your unique story and lived experience. I want you to feel like you can open up and just be yourself. Therapy can be hard work, but we'll have some fun along the way. I ascribe to the theory that people can get through things better with laughter.

My approach to treating OCD is person-centered and evidence-based. I take time to learn about each of my members as the unique individuals they are. I develop an understanding of how one’s biological, social, and psychological circumstances impact their current symptoms and experiences. Once the proper foundation has been established, members and I work collaboratively, using ERP techniques to help them achieve their personal goals. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, outdoor activities, painting, traveling, and spending quality time with family and friends. I adore animals, with a particular fondness for dogs and cats. I'm also an avid reader of mystery novels. Feel free to ask me about my current reads and share any recommendations!

My approach to treating OCD aims to isolate your specific doubts/fears, then use doubt to fight doubt. OCD wants to be the center of your life by injecting doubt and fear into any facet of life it can. My approach helps you disarm doubt and fear through self-exploration, curiosity, and courageous exposure. Outside of work, I dance: ballet/pointe, jazz, contemporary, hip hop. Before working in mental health, I was a professional TV/film makeup artist. I’ve combined my love of makeup and therapy and created my own modality: “makeup therapy” incorporates talk therapy, art therapy, and personalized makeup education. It is the ultimate combination of my two passions.
