My experience with treating OCD:

I’ve been a licensed therapist for over 7 years with more than 10 years of experience in the mental health field. My specialization in OCD treatment comes with training from top clinicians, but I also have an extensive background in treating anxiety, depression, stress, and trauma. Having seen so many cases has allowed me to develop a holistic approach to treatment. I want to get a whole clinical picture of who you are and what you’re going through. That way, I can apply Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy techniques to treat your unique OCD experiences.

About Me

My career began working with a psychologist doing psychometrics on children and adolescents with developmental disabilities. Because of that experience, I’ve been able to become highly skilled in assessing members quickly. It’s my goal to make sure you feel heard and understood, which comes from having real conversations about who you are and what troubles you. I love gaining additional experience in different work environments in order to help people overcome their challenges, which is why I’m excited to offer ERP therapy. Simply put, ERP works. And if you’re feeling shame or guilt due to your OCD, we’ll address that so you can start your path to recovery with less fear and more personal empowerment.

Whitney is great and I've had the best experience working with her. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

I chose (my therapist). specifically because her bio listed being “trauma-informed” and I have a history of trauma that other providers have told me could very well be connected to the OCD so I was hoping a therapist who was specialized in both OCD and trauma would be most helpful. However, I often felt invalidated, talked over, and dismissed in regards to the trauma aspects of my history. Upon reflection, I think the core issue was probably a lack of psycho education on what ERP actually is and how structured it is because I have engaged in a lot of other types of therapy previously and am just more comfortable with a collaborative and trauma-informed approach rather than the therapist being completely in charge. This led to exposures and exercises that did not target any specific obsessions or compulsions I struggle with, instead of the debilitating ones that brought me to NOCD and that I was paying to receive help to eliminate. Ultimately I chose to discontinue services and seek therapy elsewhere because I saw it as a waste of money to pay for exposures geared toward compulsions I didn’t have.

I am very appreciative and happy that she can pin point and link together things going on out of the jumbled mess that I'm trying to explain to her in my head.lol
