Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD
OCD therapist Lisa Perry, Licensed Therapist, LPC, Licensed OCD Therapist

Lisa Perry


Licensed Therapist, LPC


I focus on providing an environment where you can feel safe and comfortable to share the things you need to share about your OCD. I am open and nonjudgmental. I will hear what you have to say, and I will do everything I can to help you not experience that anymore. Outside of work, I love making arts and crafts and going to the beach. If I can hear waves or smell salty air, I am in my element, my happy place.

I have a child who struggles with mental health issues. Even as a highly trained therapist, it was hard for me to get him the help he needed. I understand how difficult it can be to sit on the other side of the camera. I will meet you where you are, and we're going to do this together.

Get to know Lisa Perry

Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to be in the mental health field. I felt like I was good at listening. Helping people has always been my goal. Initially I worked in mental health as a school counselor. After focusing on children for years, I wanted to be able to do even more. I established a private practice where I worked with a range of people and conditions. When I was young, I wasn't sure what my career would look like long-term, but I'm really glad to be here.

OCD is so poorly understood. Even highly trained general therapists don't have all the information necessary to treat it. As I transitioned from being a school counselor to private practice, specializing in OCD felt like a natural fit for me. Quite a few kids I worked with at school struggled with OCD. I saw the impact it can have. I continue to see it. My members are some of the kindest, sweetest, gentlest people around. Yet so many of them struggle with feeling like there’s something wrong with them.

I have quite a bit of experience with trauma. Earlier, I worked with a number of people affected by the Sandy Hook shooting. I made trauma my primary focus to make sure I had all the education I needed to treat people at that time. So many people who come in with mental health issues have some sort of trauma.

You may have a lot of fear about therapy. You're probably experiencing a lot of fear-based responses. You should know that therapy is not easy, but it is doable. This treatment can be uncomfortable, but so is what you're doing every day right now. In therapy, we experience discomfort while working toward a solution. We will start low and get some practice, so you feel what it's like to experience success. We're going to do this together. We're going to make decisions together, and we will get through the process together.

Take your time. At first, we can try something that’s easier to share and see how you feel. Start by sharing something you feel comfortable with. Do what you can, and we'll meet you where you are.

Aug 03, 2023

Lisa Perry is everything I hope for in a therapist. I can’t believe I picked the right person on the first try. She treats me with respect and compassion. She also grasps my physical challenges with ME/CFS, which make ERP a bit more complicated. I’ve had such a hard time with therapists in the past that this experience is a real relief. I’m really grateful.

Lisa was warm and genuine. She listened and made me feel that I can get through my OCD struggles.


May 22, 2023

From the second I said "hello" in my first mtg I knew I found my person. She's very friendly and so intuitive. She's easy to talk to and I've told her many things I've never admitted to out loud to anyone in my whole life. I've only had two sessions but I already feel there is hope. I know it's going to be a lot of hard work but I'm ready. NOCD is amazing!

First session but so far so good.

Lisa does an excellent job at distinguishing symptoms as OCD vs not which has really helped me. She gives clear instructions and always explains things so that the purpose of each exposure makes sense and is doable at home.

“This was a really helpful session!”


Oct 07, 2022

Lisa made me very comfortable. She knew exactly how to create a treatment plan to help me. She also met me at my therapy experience level rather than start at the basics that i already know. I left this session feeling great and that there is hope to get better!!

Lisa is amazing with my daughter and we are so so thankful we found NOCD.


Aug 18, 2022

Lisa was so great and gave me so much peace of mind that I am in the right hands with her.


Jun 22, 2022

I think my therapist was new to ERP and the exposures she assigned mostly were YouTube videos that didn’t exactly relate to my themes. The psychoeducation is very cookie-cutter as is the whole program. I came to a session with a bad day and my therapist terminated our relationship saying that I needed intensive outpatient treatment knowing I could not afford or access that. Now I see an independent ERP therapist who is a member of iocdf and it’s a world of difference.


Apr 19, 2022

I love Lisa! She has been such a vital part of my ongoing recovery.


Apr 05, 2022

Lisa Perry is patient, caring and an amazing ERP therapist for my 12 year old son!
