My experience with treating OCD:

I want to see people reach their full potential, and if OCD stands in your way, working with me on Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy can help because it’s proven to treat OCD. I’ve been practicing as a licensed therapist since 1999, having earned a Doctorate Degree in Clinical Psychology. I combine that with advanced training in ERP therapy to treat people with OCD.


About Me

OCD can feel like you may never have your joy back. Intrusive thoughts are persistent, attacking you daily. You engage in new habits to help relieve the stress, only for the anxiety to return. It feels like a never-ending cycle of thoughts you never want to have again, but you have no way of blocking them. You shouldn’t have to live this way. Warm, honest, and supportive: That’s how members describe me as a therapist. When you share your OCD experiences, however scary and intimate, I remain calm and quiet. That allows me to help you move beyond your intrusive thoughts so you can be more in control of your life. I’m motivated to help you reap the most out of your work and relationships, and to live life to the fullest.

I absolutely love my therapist, Karen Ferguson; she is AMAZING!!! I feel like she has saved me in so many ways. I love her easy-going personality. She actively listens and knows just how to help me. I feel like she is so personable. I feel comfortable talking to her about anything. I just can’t say enough good things about her. I am so glad she is part of this program and that I stumbled across NOCD and especially her. - Becky
