Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD
OCD therapist Shahzad Chaudhry, Licensed Therapist, LMFT, Licensed OCD Therapist

Shahzad Chaudhry

Licensed Therapist, LMFT


I've provided mental health support in group homes. I've been a child protective services social worker, followed by work as a psychiatric mental health professional. But more importantly to being a specialized OCD therapist, I've had my own experience with OCD. I've had people close to me go through OCD with both good and bad treatment. I know what intrusive thoughts do to a person, how it turns their life into chaos while it feeds off your fears, and how it sets off compulsive behavior. I'll make sure to create an environment that makes you feel safe, so you can speak honestly about what you’re going through. Members describe me as someone who's caring and invested in the quality of their lives. I enjoy my work doing it because I'm able to give back to the OCD community. I treat with knowledge, but I also treat with heart, and together, we'll beat OCD so you can find more pleasure and joy in your life.

Having been through different types of therapy with my son, I can honestly say that ERP has been the most successful. Shahzad was our therapist, and he was just the right combo of compassionate, straight forward, and patient to get my son to try ERP. Six months later, my son now has the tools to challenge his thinking and conquer any compulsions. He is so much happier, more confident, and less anxious. He’s even shared about is journey with other people. Anyone out there struggling with OCD should not hesitate to try NOCD- it works!

My therapist is very open and understanding as well as guiding and moving the session forward. I feel like I am being guided on how to walk through my OCD, and understand the path forward, and how to start taking the first steps.
