My experience with treating OCD:

With over 10 years of experience treating OCD as well as depression, anxiety, and depression, I now offer specialized OCD treatment at NOCD. I have gained my experience working in mental health centers & agencies, as well as private practice. I’ve also used Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy for almost my entire career, using ERP to help people overcome anxiety disorders. During our time, I’ll use ERP to show you how to manage your OCD safely and confidently once you’ve completed treatment.


About Me

I have seen the effectiveness of ERP therapy for quite some time, so being able to provide you with ERP tools means a lot to me. You’ll learn to take care of your OCD whenever it rises without using compulsions to relieve anxiety. My approach to treatment is to go at a pace that you feel comfortable with. My goal is to train you so well, and give you the everyday skills you need to combat OCD, that you no longer need me as your therapist. I look to build a rapport quickly so you can feel more at ease when you share your OCD experiences with me. But if you’re not ready to share, I won’t push you. I’ve been told that I am very empathetic and understanding. I’m eager to see you improve, but not at the expense of making you feel uncomfortable.

Connected well with my reluctant 14 year old son and actually got him to communicate his thoughts and feelings, which is NOT easy.

My son looks forward to his appointments with Ross. I appreciate his responsiveness.


Nov 16, 2021

Ross has been so great with my son. He’s been a kind and patient guide through the exposures. I’m so grateful my son has been able to work with him.
