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.

Therapy can be a very scary experience for some and it takes a lot of courage to reach out and seek support, and I commend you for doing so.

NOCD therapists are trained by our world-renowned clinical leadership team.

Was my first appointment, I have hope again, I feel heard and seen, even had a good laugh! Scared but very ready for this journey, thank you!!


May 22, 2023

at first, the standard questions, rubbed me wrong.... and then I came to the realization that those questions were meant to give background. And Lauren was able to recognize another problem and that was really good news.

Lauren was able to help me see things I couldn’t see before, her insights have been so incredibly valuable in my journey towards managing my OCD (and so many other aspects in my life). I feel guided and supported more than I ever have before. Lauren is honest, says the hard things that need to be heard, but they are said with nothing but kindness and a genuine desire to see improvement and greater quality of life in her patients.

I really like Lauren and I would love to have her again. With scheduling it might not work, but I am glad I had my first session with her.

Lauren is creative, friendly, enthusiastic and thorough. I feel like she cares about my success and I trust she can help me get there. I see big improvements already. Thank you, Lauren!

She’s very sweet and very calm. It makes for a very calm learning and therapeutic environment, even at home! She’s dedicated to helping me and truly listens and wants what is best for 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!


Jan 05, 2022

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
