Andre Carrington


Licensed Therapist, LMFT


I became a therapist to help free people from the barriers that OCD puts on their lives. Over the years, I’ve learned how important it is to build rapport and trust with the people I’m treating by listening, demonstrating empathy, and helping them feel valued within a safe environment. Members describe me as kind, compassionate, and a great listener, and I feel honored to have witnessed relationships be restored many years post-treatment.

Get to know Andre Carrington

When I was growing up, my dad had BPD and my mom had OCD. I really wanted to understand the mind better. It made me very curious about helping people, and I wanted to be able to learn to help my parents too. My mom has a lot of OCD fears, specifically about her animals being harmed. She is very plagued by these types of thoughts. It gives me a lot of compassion toward the members I work with.

I like that there's a very specific method to treating people with OCD, and it has a very high success rate. To me, that was very appealing. As a therapist, I'm very encouraging and down to earth. I believe in you and know you can do it. You'll have my encouragement and support the whole way.

For the last six years, I've been doing substance abuse treatment. The people I treated had depression, anxiety, ADHD, and sometimes OCD. Growing up in my teens, I had my own brush with that. I wanted to give back and help the same population. I love when a member has a light-bulb moment, and they realize this is something that's very treatable. They start to get that hope, and you can really see them turning a corner toward a positive direction.

You're taking a courageous step toward healing. You're doing the right thing for yourself.

There's no guilt, there's no shame. We can definitely talk about anything in therapy. There are no taboo subjects.

Andre has been a big help


Nov 21, 2023

Andre is an excellent therapist that goes above and beyond. He really listens and explains the different techniques well. Today he taught me downward arrow ,ACT, and habituation so I understood it. I love that he is flexible and willing to help me with my GAD and other problems that may arise.


Oct 16, 2023

With his support I was able to overcome the debilitating battle with OCD. He uses humor and creates such a safe and welcoming environment to support in breaking the pattern and cycle of OCD. I am done with treatment now and can say that with his support my life is mine again and I am enjoying it to the fullest. Such a weight has been lifted now that I don't have to deal with the hours that OCD was taking from me each day.

Andre is an expert on OCD! He is personable, a great listener, and truly cares to help you get well. He tailors exposure exercises to your specific needs, and does an excellent job explaining the process.

Andre helped me in more ways than I was aware of at the time. I went into therapy a very scared person and Andre helped me face many of my fears and find a new way of living in the world.


Aug 04, 2023

Andre is very knowledgable in both OCD and GAD. It is easy to talk to him, and I feel comfortable sharing my obsessions and compulsions. I know I will be making progress with him as my therapist.

Very understanding

This is the session where I received one of the most helpful pieces of advice by far!

Andre has worked with me for the last couple of months and it's been remarkable the difference ERP has made for me. It's a tool and method that we should all know, and for me Andre has been a great teacher of the method. I have suffered from ROCD since I was a teenager. it kept me from dating anyone until I met my wife and it has been a burden on my marriage and my wonderful and very faithful wife who has been with me for 20 years. One of the main struggles for me has been from intrusive thoughts about her with other men. I've always know these thoughts were unreasonable and crazy but they have scared me severely, off and on for 20 years and often have overtaken my life. I honestly thought that was a pain I would keep with me until I died, but it is gone now. My brain now reacts and thinks about these things differently and it is a huge relief. I can't thank Andre enough.


Mar 13, 2023

I feel Andre always listens to me and makes me feel like I can talk freely with him without being judged or insecure about my mental illness.


Feb 28, 2023

He's awesome!
