About

Hiking is my self care. As part of that, my husband and I like to explore old mines. Once we were inside a mine with no light, and my anxiety went way up. I was having a really hard time. My husband said, "You can leave and go back outside." I said, "No, I want to be here. I like exploring these spaces." I stuck through it; I didn't leave. Today, I can do things that are really good for me, and manage my anxiety.

I have struggled with generalized anxiety disorder. I now do a lot of response prevention myself; it's part of my lifestyle. I tell members, 'I take my anxiety with me. I can tolerate feeling uncomfortable.' There will be days that it's not easy. But with this treatment, you can live the life you want to live.

Mary Beth is so incredibly compassionate, knowledgeable, accommodating, and supportive. Today’s session was tough, but as always, with Mary Beth’s guidance, I was able to find my center again and realize I can tolerate uncertainty and discomfort. I left the session feeling confident that I can navigate my OCD this week, without falling apart.

Mary Beth is truly the BEST therapist I’ve ever had. I have never felt more seen, heard, understood, and fully supported by a therapist. My partner is always excited to hear about or sit in on our sessions because she sees the progress I’ve made. I’ve had so many breakthroughs since working with Mary Beth. I truly believe healing from OCD, managing anxiety, and overcoming depression is actually possible.

Marybeth just GETS it! She’s got great intuition and such a pleasant spirit. I genuinely look forward to my sessions with her, and I’m not sure I’ve ever felt that way about therapy before! I always leave sessions with her feeling hopeful and encouraged. I’m so excited to continue this journey! Thanks Marybeth!!

Today after my session with Mary Beth, I welled up with positive emotion. I am filled with deep gratitude, comfort, and feelings of safety knowing I have the RIGHT therapist. Mary Beth just gets me in a way that no other therapist has. She is warm, friendly, understanding, non-judgmental, kind, supportive, and funny. She always knows EXACTLY what to say and do EVERY session. She is spot on with exposures and homework. She is super mindful of my hierarchy/SUD scores, and is very attuned to when I am feeling triggered. I have a really hard thing coming up in a few days and I feel totally prepared, thanks to my work with Mary Beth. She doesn’t just preach the work, she lives it, so her support lands even better. I always love Mary Beth’s examples and analogies from her real life. I literally can’t believe how geared up and ready I feel for this thing that was causing me DEEP overwhelm, fear, and anger, all thanks to Mary Beth. I literally have step-by-step instructions, a toolbox of things she’s already taught me, and a plethora of notes and encouragement. Rather than ruminating, freaking out, causing myself to spiral out with anxiety, and shutting down, I actually feel empowered, light, and hopeful. Signing up with NOCD is one of the best things I’ve ever done for my mental health and relationship. Feeling seen, heard, understood, and supported is something I rarely experience, but I feel that with every session with Mary Beth. Thank you.

My therapist is hands down, one of the best I’ve encountered. She’s helped me to REALLY take a look at my triggers, to unpack the hidden causes, but more importantly, how to navigate them with practical TOOLS I can use anywhere to help me win against OCD. I am continuously blown away by her thoughtful selections of exposures, intentional guidance, refusal to engage in things that would make me worse (reassurance seeking), and how flexible she has been to accommodate my needs and schedule. As we celebrate LGBTQIA+ Pride month, I am also super grateful how my therapist has been an affirming ally, even when Pride wasn’t trending.

As a Black, queer, autistic person with a complex trauma history and ADHD, I have intersectional concerns when working with new therapists. I have encountered many racially insensitive therapists, who were not trauma-informed, neurodivergent-affirming, and made homo + transphobic comments, so I am very guarded. I was PLEASANTLY and thoroughly surprised with my therapist, Mary Beth. She made it clear, INSTANTLY that she was culturally competent, LGBTQIA-accepting, neurodivergent-affirming, and totally capable of being trauma-sensitive. After several weeks of working with her, I am more and more impressed each session how intentional, inclusive, and sincere she is. She has even included my Black, queer, autistic partner in therapy sessions and was very compassionate, skilled, and supportive when an exposure didn’t go as planned and resulted in dysregulation. What could have created a new trauma ended up being something that was handled so gracefully and with care. Mary Beth totally earned my full trust that session and has been even more intentional since. Mary Beth is very open and understanding about the Black experience and multiply marginalized identities. I truly couldn’t ask for a better therapist. I feel safe and totally comfortable with her. NOCD is super lucky to have Mary Beth and I am grateful I made the right choice in therapists.

Mary Beth is amazing. I feel so seen, heard, and supported in our sessions. When I am freaking out in between sessions, she sends me the most encouraging messages and great resources to help me find my center again. She is also super intentional with the exposures she chooses for me. Just completed my first full month of sessions and I am really getting into the groove.

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).
