Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD
OCD therapist Celeste Soto, Licensed Therapist, LCSW, Licensed OCD Therapist

Celeste Soto


Licensed Therapist, LCSW


I became a therapist to help people address their fears, teach them how to manage their struggles, and help them find hope again. Education is key to effective treatment, and I take it upon myself to make sure you understand what you’re going through. I’m here to listen to your story. Sharing your OCD experiences with me during sessions allows me to customize your treatment with proper ERP exposures. I’ve been described as helpful, compassionate, and supportive - but I can be assertive when I need to be. I want to make sure that every step you make in treatment is the best one for you and your road to recovery. Together, we can make it happen for you.

The therapist helps me to understand how I can cope with my compulsions. We do exercises that I can use on a daily basis. She listens what I have to say and how I feel.

I think Celeste understood what we as a family have been going through and she was honest with my son that he is an integral part of this process and that he has to want to get better in order for the therapy to work.
