Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD
OCD therapist Paria Maghsoudi, Licensed Therapist, LCSW, Licensed OCD Therapist

Paria Maghsoudi


Licensed Therapist, LCSW


Over the years, I’ve developed a strength-based approach to treatment. I believe in the empowerment of others and praising them when goals are accomplished. It's vital for me to help people find their own strengths, so they can gain confidence in using the tools that I teach them. Overcoming OCD certainly requires confidence because I’ll be showing you how to manage OCD on your own using ERP. But confidence in yourself won’t begin until you have trust in my ability to guide you. With compassion and kindness, I'll give you space to find your ground and get comfortable so you can openly share your thoughts and feelings safely. As we build that good rapport, you’ll see how effective ERP can be and put your trust in its ability to help you overcome OCD.

I really appreciate my therapist Paria and all NOCD has done for me. At first NOCD seemed too good to be true, but I’ve made more progress with my OCD and mental health in just 4 weeks here than I have with any other therapist in years. Thank you!

I can see where things are challenging and changing for me. For the first time in a long time, I see where I can make changes. This is vastly different from my therapies before, that focus on validation. Knowing where I can learn and what I should take time trying to do, is exactly what I need to facilitate the changes I want. My therapist knows what she's talking about, isn't dismissive and redirects me in ways that I hope to be able to learn to do better for myself. Last session, I left feeling hopeful. This feels like a big deal because my symptoms often leave me feeling confused and hopeless.

I just started with NOCD a couple of months ago, and although ERP can be hard and uncomfortable, Paria makes it so much better! She is encouraging, she makes you feel comfortable, and she wants to see you get better. I really enjoy meeting with her every week as I try to recover from OCD. Thanks Paria for all that you do! 🤗

Paria has been amazing in each therapy session. She encourages me to do exposures and has helped me identify my triggers. Since starting therapy sessions with her I have felt empowered and in control!

My therapist Paria has completely changed my life! She has taught me to see my OCD in a different light and I’ve been able to learn new tools and techniques to stop this from taking over my life. Starting with NOCD has been the best decision I’ve made in a long time and I am excited to keep on going with treatment and eventually become an OCD conqueror!

I have made such progress and have developed such a skill set that has really helped me get through each day!

Paria is awesome! She is so helpful, understanding, and honest. She challenges me to push myself and conquer my compulsions every session.

I had an amazing session. I feel very hopeful for my future for the first time in weeks!

Paria is a great therapist. I see her at the end of the day on Friday. Even though she must be exhausted from her week, she always shows up 110% for me. She helps me with my OCD but never forgets that it’s just one piece of my past and present.

She is probably one of the most straight forward understanding people I know

I’m a lifelong OCD haver, but was prescribed treatment for my OCD for the first time at 29 years old, and part of that was ERP therapy. I wasn’t able to find ERP therapists in my area, but I found NOCD. The app itself has taught me so many things about OCD and I am extremely grateful for that alone. The therapist I’ve been working with, Paria, has made me feel comfortable throughout the ERP experience. She’s taught me so much about why things are the way they are, and tools to overcome the distress that comes along with it. Thanks to her, I practice disrupting my compulsions every day, and the effect of relief was so much faster than I was expecting (and I was terrified to start). I think these are tools that can help everyone in life, not just those who have OCD. Thank you, NOCD team, for helping me regain control of my life and happiness.

My Therapist is very professional and helpful. She is saving my life.

From session to session Paria remembers what is going on in my life and the past and present factors that play into my OCD symptoms. She looks at the bigger picture and sees me as a whole person, not just my OCD. We work on ERP, but she also helps me to process difficult past experiences and to address problematic core beliefs. She is great!
