My experience with treating OCD:

I specialize in treating OCD, with almost 10 years under my belt treating people of all age groups exhibiting severe mental health challenges and illnesses. I put my trust in evidence-based treatments such as Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy because it means I’m not relying on guesswork to treat you. ERP techniques are proven to work and allow me to develop a quicker sense of trust with my client.


About Me

Treatment at NOCD is a collaborative process. I’ll explain what you can look forward to, and provide a non-judgemental space as you move on from session to session. Your hesitations are to be expected. This may be the first time that you’re opening up about your OCD, or you may feel shame for having your intrusive thoughts. But you are not your OCD; it doesn’t define you. I have a strong desire to support people in their quest to improve their quality of life. I’m also a Master in Divinity and have extensive experience with faith-based contexts. People say I bring a great deal of calm to the therapist-member relationship, and I’m not easily thrown off by anyone’s intrusive thoughts. I’m here to be clear and straightforward so you can reach one of the biggest goals in your life.

My first session was affirming. I am not defined by OCD and I will achieve recovery if I work hard. Thank you, NOCD, for helping me start this journey.

Only had a couple sessions. Robert is very solid. He makes me feel at ease even when I've had a really hard day.
