Amanda Contento


Licensed Therapist, LMFT


I’m a big believer in the power of positivity and know how important it is to help people get a deeper understanding of their OCD and mental health. I consider myself a strengths-based therapist, looking for solutions and not just thinking about the problem. As your therapist, I’ll provide you with an approachable environment with no judgement that makes it easy for you to open up.

I'm very understanding. I go at your pace. I take a person-centered approach and will enlist your strengths to help you.

Get to know Amanda Contento

When I was younger, I was in family therapy with my mom, and it really made an impact on our relationship. To this day, we are best friends. When I was younger, we couldn't even be in the same room together. Being able to see the impact therapy had on my relationship with my parents, I wanted to kind of give back to the community and offer that same value. I enjoy making a positive impact on others' lives, and seeing the transformation people can make through therapy.

I wanted to learn something new, to broaden my experience, and to help a wide variety of people with different diagnoses. With ERP, I've seen a lot of improvement. It's very effective, if you're ready to put in the effort, especially between sessions. It's not just meeting once or twice a week with your therapist. There's work to do between therapy sessions as well.

I specialize in family and couples’ work, and working with parents. That informs my work with OCD. I often bring in my members' significant others and family members to help them out with their ERP.

We don’t do talk therapy. We are a type of therapy that will help you see long-term changes. We hit the ground running and begin exposures and education on how to treat OCD, to give you the information you need to work on intrusive thoughts. That said, I'm very understanding. I go at your pace. Some people like to get into ERP right away. Some people like to set some ground rules for therapy before we begin. I take a person-centered approach and will enlist your strengths to help you in ERP.

Know that this is a safe environment. This is a non-judgmental place. Other people also have many of the thoughts you're experiencing. It won't be the first time I've heard these intrusive thoughts that may embarrass you.

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

Amanda is great and helps me to work through ocd as well as difficult family dynamics. I feel heard which is important to me because I am mostly ignored by my family. It was great to talk to her as I am in a happier mood.

Amanda is very patient with me and really listens to what is going on. She makes very helpful suggestions which have helped me to manage some of my obsessions. I am still struggling with OCD however, it is the fault of excess stress. She has helped me to realize that I need to not overwhelm myself.

Amanda is great because she helps me to work through ocd as well as to understand other symptoms of ocd. She has gotten me to lean into the uncertainty which aids in dealing with ocd thoughts.

My first session was great and it was nice to get help. Amanda was very kind and helpful. She gave me a great start to the road ahead and I am looking forward to working through my ocd with her. She is very personable and I didn’t feel pressure as I have in the past with others trying to help me.

Amanda is amazing.. She has been working with my 10 year old son. My son is very stubborn and strong minded. Amanda has consistently shown patience and understanding. She meets him where he is at in every session. She has a gift for working with children. I highly, highly recommend her.

Making a connection to me is important.I definitely feel seen and heard and knowing a plan is coming is scary but I need to address my ocd anxiety. Amanda is funny! Humor is great! 😊👍👍


Jul 12, 2022

Amanda is the best! She always makes me feel seen and heard and offers great perspective and examples to help me see things differently.


Apr 28, 2022

Always allows me get out what I need to say and helps me remain rational about what is going on. Breaks things down for me to fully understand and yet not feel silly for asking for a break down. Also has taught me so many tricks to help me and I’ve learned so much about myself.


Feb 15, 2022

I have seen many OCD therapists in the past who were passionate about my OCD dx. However, I just started with NOCD the last two weeks and finally feel as though my therapist understands the type of symptoms I am experiencing. I have been very discouraged over the past few years but am hopeful with NOCD as they specialize in my unique pattern of thinking!
