Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD
OCD therapist Michelle Soares, Licensed Therapist, LPCC, Licensed OCD Therapist

Michelle Soares


Licensed Therapist, LPCC


One of my fondest memories in the OCD/ERP world was working with an older gentleman who was afraid of allergens and animals. At the end of treatment, he got two bunnies. It was the best experience – the journey from "I'm always going to listen to the OCD," to "You know what? There are things that are way more important than what OCD is telling me right now."

I feel Michelle is very organized and I like how she updates my ERP homework every week and sends me a detailed email of what I should do that week.

I’ve been working with Michelle for over a year, and I can’t imagine working with any other therapist for ERP. She is patient, listens to my struggles, offers ERP appropriate solutions, and challenges me to improve. She also cheers me on and believes in me when I don’t believe in myself. She offers different points of view that would not occur to me, and I trust her on this journey. I highly recommend her.

I am so glad that I attended my session today. The compassion and support that all the staff at NOCD has given me so much hope. If you are on the fence about starting treatment, this is your sign to start ?? I actually look forward to next week’s session rather than dreading it like past OCD therapy sessions


Jun 22, 2022

The therapists here know how to treat ocd. If you have ocd or know anyone that does and needs treatment, I recommend using NOCD. Most Insurances cover it also. I didn't think I could do it until I read that!!!!! Michelle Soares is very caring and has helped me with more than just ocd.


Jun 13, 2022

Michelle is a great therapist she also feels like a friend I feel very comfortable

May 18, 2022

I was misdiagnosed for months and now that I know it’s OCD it’s scary but I’m glad to be getting the help I need. Barley a few sessions in but so far Michelle has been great.

Michelle Soares was awesome! She knew exactly what she was doing, and she was incredibly knowledgeable. She was very kind and very friendly. She was just a joy to have an appointment with, and I am greatly looking forward to working with her on a regular basis.
