About

I enjoy working with people from various backgrounds—my ethnic background includes three races—so I like to explore how cultural upbringing can affect OCD. I'm a nurturer, and that extends to my office decor. During our sessions, you'll probably see a plant in the background. I consider myself a plant mom.

I have loved ones with OCD. I've seen how it's affected them, and I've been able to help. I will teach you about OCD, and we'll work as a team. There will be accountability, but I'm not here to get on your case. I'm here to help you. We'll figure this out together.

My therapist has helped me immensely by helping me learn to close intrusive thoughts before they turn into a spiraling rumination by confronting the root of my fear (of being a bad person) head-on and essentially asking myself: “maybe I AM a bad person” and just sitting in that possibility for a sec. It leaves nowhere else for my mind to go but just to move on. It’s helped soo much. Those intrusive thoughts are much easier to manage now, and have less power over my emotions.

I had contacted my mental health insurance and was waiting for an appointment with a pediatric ERP provider for over 6 months before I found NOCD. I was able to get an intake in just 6 weeks AND they took my insurance!!! ERP is a very straightforward therapy, but it absolutely requires the help of a professional to navigate the steps. Most of the work happens outside of therapy and continues on after you end the therapy. I think ERP lends itself well to a virtual platform as we had better success with NOCD than with traditional CBT for anxiety. Or maybe it was just that Ashley Ward was just a better therapist. We really loved working with her and have already recommended her and NOCD to other people.

She understands the issues my son has and can pinpoint things he is doing to avoid the real problem. She always brings him back to the real issue at hand and is firm, but supportive through the exposure process each time.

My therapist took me from being too afraid to taking out the trash to working in a clinical lab with infectious blood and stool samples. This really works

Just getting started, but Ashley seems competent and confident that she knows how to help my son. And she picks up on subtle clues or looks he gives and that means she’s paying attention and tuned into him which I appreciate.
