When my son was diagnosed with OCD in the 2nd grade, it scared me. Fortunately, I found a therapist for him that used ERP therapy. Now, my son is living a healthy life with joy and great promise. Since then, I have wanted to specialize in ERP treatment. I know you may be feeling scared or hesitant, especially since you will have to share your intrusive thoughts with me. But I assure you that you will only be met with empathy, kindness, and a safe, non-judgemental space to work in. I have the first-hand experience and the professional experience to get you through your current situations. My goal for you is to look back at what you did in treatment and realize how far you've come. You can have your life back, and I'm here to help you get it.

As a parent of a child who has been diagnosed and treated for OCD with this type of treatment, I know that it really works ,so I am excited to work with you on this journey.

I couldn't be more thrilled with my son's progress under the care of Kim! She helped us navigate a very difficult period of life and gave us the tools and resources we need to manage OCD when it creeps (or storms) in. She is reliable, kind and non-judgemental. She had a very keen eye for identifying, understanding and explaining the behaviors my son was exhibiting. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing help managing OCD!

We are so thankful for Kim. She has helped my son learn to take control of his OCD instead of letting it control him! She's also very good at helping me understand how my words and actions impact my son's progress.

So wonderful to find a therapist that knows how to treat OCd

Kim Blackburn had been a phenomenal resource for our family. With identical twins, both battling OCD, we had some scary times. Kim did a fantastic job of educating our family on what OCD is and does, and equipped us with the tools to overcome and control the triggers and compulsions. We are in a much better place now because of Kim and NOCD. Finding NOCD was invaluable. Everywhere in our state, child psychologists have wait lists and are inconveniently located or have limited hours. We were so thankful to find NOCD and it’s services that fit into our busy schedule and let us complete therapy from home.
