My experience with treating OCD:

I have over 15 years of practice in treating mental health, and now I specialize in OCD. I've worked in a community agency and mental health facilities where I've treated children as young as 3 and adults up to 90 years old. Most of my cases focused on trauma and substance abuse, in addition to OCD, and have taught me how to treat even the most troubling of mental health challenges. During our sessions, I'll use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to treat you. ERP is proven to be effective against all OCD subtypes, so whatever challenge you're facing, I can help.


About Me

I understand that you may feel shame, guilt, or fear due to your unwanted thoughts. The mind is a tricky thing, and the fact that you're experiencing unwanted thoughts doesn't reflect who you are as a person. During our sessions, I look to get as much information about you as possible to learn who you are and what bothers you. That way, I can address your needs and be as helpful as possible. I will create a non-judgmental space where you can feel comfortable to open up about yourself. Having gone through counseling, I know how important treatment can be. You've chosen to put your trust in me, to get you out of OCD's grasp. For that, it's the ultimate privilege and honor to work with you.

Awesome amazing therapy. Life changing. First time in over a decade of therapy and many therapists, where I feel like I am making actual progress and reaching actual peace, and gaining actual strength. It has given me a true strength I didn’t know was possible. It is hard to put into words the relief and happiness I have felt from working with a therapist that is specialized in OCD. NOCD guarantees it and it has been unbelievable and I am only getting stronger. :). Thank you NOCD and thank you to my therapist!

I struggle with OCD ever since I can remember it's been a long journey of it and now it's time to squash it and to make it work to where I don't have it anymore or the thought of. My therapist has been very helpful by showing me tasks and things I could do to try to stop the urges. I recommend nocd to everyone I come in contact with just in case they might know someone who might be suffering like us.
