Tamara Fagan


Licensed Therapist, LISW-CP


I have anxiety, so I know what that feels like. I've learned skills to cope with it, and now I can talk about it. We all have our issues, and we're all together in this.

Want to work with them?

As a therapist, I accept people with no judgment. ERP is a skill you can learn, it's not just talking—it's a tool you can carry with you when you leave. I know you don’t want to stay in therapy forever.

Get to know Tamara Fagan

I have always had a heart for helping others and a keen empathy for what others are going through. I was a “therapist” through my volunteer interests until I decided that I wanted to have more tools to do the thing that I am most passionate about; helping others love themselves. This led me to return to school in order to develop the skills that I need to be more effective in my life’s passion. I know that we all have 'stuff' and we need a safe place to process and organize that “stuff” so that we can recognize the strengths we have built throughout our life experiences. Our individual experiences, woven together, make a lovely and unique pattern.

After years of working in this field I have come to believe that acceptance is the key to resilience. I have worked in a variety of settings with many types of clients and have found that each of us have to learn to live with being uncomfortable at times. ERP allows us to learn to live with discomfort and not let the discomfort lead us away from living a happy, mentally healthy life. Many people with OCD have a tremendous amount of guilt and shame as a response to unwanted obsessive thoughts which keeps them caught in a cycle of secrecy and self-judgement. I wish to enable members to take the OCD monster out of the closet and bring it into the daylight so that they might recognize how unthreatening this little monster actually is.

I have worked with a wide variety of mental health diagnoses, specifically focusing on depression, anxiety, PTSD and substance abuse. Through my work with non-profit agencies I have had the pleasure of working with many people from a wide variety of backgrounds, age groups, ethnicities and sexual orientations.

I believe the most important aspect of any mental health therapy is the therapeutic relationship. Establishing that trust in me as a person, and as a therapist, will give you the foundation that you need to move forward. We will be in this together, we will start small and grow one step at a time and I will help you see how strong you really are!

ERP has been determined to be the most effective therapeutic modality for treating OCD and that’s what we do; all day, every day. My job as a NOCD therapist is to educate you and give you the tools that you need to carry with you in order to manage your OCD. It takes hard work, it takes doing homework and it takes facing your fears. My job is to give you the tools and let you use them throughout your lifetime.

We will work together to build a relationship where you can trust. We will move at your pace for sharing. We will push for transparency but if today’s not the day, tomorrow is OK. OCD is working very hard to make you believe that no good person has ever had these thoughts before and I am going to work just as hard to help you to see that this is simply not true.

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

Tamara Fagan

Tamara is really getting to the root of my OCD and nobody has ever done that with me. I feel so comfortable telling her things that I have never told anybody before. She gives me a safe space to feel what I need to feel.


Feb 05, 2024

I love that this therapist can relate to my anxiety and offers insight on ways that I can address my thinking.


Jan 19, 2024

Tammy is the best therapist I’ve ever had! I’ve been working with her for a little over a year and it has transformed me into someone who is confident, self-assured, happy, and unburdened. Tammy has supported me through some of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do, but she gave me a safe, stable environment to do them in. I’m so grateful to her for giving me a life I never could have dreamed of for myself when I was that little 7-year-old girl getting diagnosed with OCD. Thank you, Tammy, and thank you, NOCD!!!


Jan 17, 2024

I love Tammy, she’s amazingly supportive!


Dec 19, 2023

Tammy is amazing!


Dec 16, 2023

Tammy is absolutely amazing! I’m so thankful she’s my therapist!!


Dec 15, 2023

As the title says, Ms Tamara was the first professional to actually take time to listen to me without passing judgment or trying to shove unnecessary medication down my throat. That in it's self was worth more to me than anyone could possibly imagine. This not only validated my gut feeling that I wasn't going crazy or that something was seriously wrong with me but actually got me started on my path to feeling like my old self. I couldn't be more grateful to NOCD and especially Ms Tamara for helping me out this much.

Tammy is great!

Tammy is the best! She is the perfect partner and guide in my journey of recovering from OCD. She knows when to push me to work harder and when to pull back and explain things to me so I understand the steps I need to take. She is kind and a good listener.


Oct 15, 2023

Tammy is amazing! She’s the perfect partner, teacher, and friend when it comes to handling my OCD symptoms. She’s also personable, kind, and honest. I always leave a session with Tammy feeling better about myself and more empowered as a person than I did before. I’ve never had a better therapist.


Oct 13, 2023

The first session was mostly about what is going on with my son's OCD. We look forward to the future therapy sessions.

Kind enough to hear my problems, smart enough to help them. No judgement for a dreadful past.

As always, I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Tammy Fagan!! I was having a bad day today because I haven’t been feeling well, but Tammy wouldn’t let me give up on myself for even a moment. We did my ERP together, and it made my whole day better because she helped me accomplish something I didn’t think I would be able to do. Thank you, Tammy! Thank you, NOCD!

She was unable to help because I don’t have ocd. If I did, she would be wonderful.


Jun 30, 2022

Tamara has been amazing with my son who is 11 years old. It is difficult for him to open up and talk and Tamara was able to get him to that point in a short time. He feels very comfortable and at ease with her. She is so patient and kind.
