My experience with treating OCD:

I’ve been practicing as a licensed therapist and counselor for over 8 years and now specialize in treating OCD. I also specialize in trauma care and have helped many people with their trauma-related disorders. For people with OCD, I use an evidence-based treatment called Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. ERP allows me to address your particular OCD challenges, giving you truly personalized treatment.


About Me

Before working with NOCD, I treated people at an outpatient mental health clinic for many mental health issues, including OCD. I also worked at a non-profit organization offering assistance to those in need. Helping people achieve their goals and get better is part of my journey. I know you may be feeling scared or apprehensive, but I know we can work together to tackle your fears and teach you how to manage them. I also have experience as a client of therapy, so I know exactly what it feels like to be on the other side of treatment. You’ll find me to be a great listener, fully engaged with a calming presence. I’m driven to produce results, and using ERP allows me to get those results for you. Let’s work together to put your OCD troubles behind you.

Lauren is so patient and really does her best to help me identify my mental compulsions. I know I’m a tough case and it will take time, but I’m hopeful Lauren can help me get there. She’s great!

Still very unsure of everything at the moment I still feel unsure that this will help but as time goes on hopefully I’ll feel more confident
