Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD
OCD therapist Mary Kay Rose, Licensed Therapist, LPC, LMHC, Licensed OCD Therapist

Mary Kay Rose


Licensed Therapist, LPC, LMHC


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.

What our members say about
Mary Kay Rose


Jan 04, 2024

Mary Kay Rose is the most compassionate, knowledgeable, and gracious therapist a person with OCD could have. She takes the time to explain the parts of OCD and ERP I don’t understand, and she is patient as I work through my thoughts. She helps me sit with the anxiety, never makes me feel judged, and she laughs with me as we find the humor in OCD that only people who live with it can appreciate. I am so lucky to have her as a therapist and am grateful to NOCD!

NOCD has been amazing for my recovery. I think education is a huge part of overcoming the OCD beast. NOCD has amazing content and information available and does a fantastic job. I am so grateful for them. I can’t even imagine how people lived with this disorder before NOCD and other educational tools. My therapist Mary Kay Rose is AMAZING. The kindest, most non-judgmental person and so knowledgeable on OCD. She helps you realize that no, you aren’t crazy and yes, people do have these thoughts — but they really don’t mean anything at the core. I have learned so much and am so grateful. For anyone on the fence about doing ERP — DO IT. It’s the hardest thing you will ever do but so worth it on the other side. Thank you NOCD!!

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!

Mary Kay was so kind and helpful during this session. We identified some great exposures and I look forward to making progress before our next session.


Dec 07, 2021

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.
