Kai is excellent with my son and very good at explaining things to him and the rest of our family so we can all be part of helping him fight back to OCD


Nov 08, 2022

Kai is an effective, wise, and compassionate therapist. He has helped me greatly and I'm so grateful.


Nov 04, 2022

I feel like we as a family are pretty well read on ERP and OCD. But even still, I feel so grateful for Kai's perspective and ability to help my daughter work through things. We feel super supported.


Oct 20, 2022

Kai is an amazing therapist. He has helped me make so much progress in my OCD journey, and I am in such a better place now than before I started therapy with him. Kai is a great listener, offers support and encouragement, and has provided ERP in creative and thoughtful ways that have targeted my specific obsessions. If you’re looking to start therapy or looking for a new therapist, I would highly recommend Kai!

Kai is a great therapist. Sometimes it is difficult to go into detail about our issues. He has always been patient and furthered the conversation by asking the right questions. It was great to have somebody to explain OCD more thoroughly and the therapies to treat it. He is a pleasure to work with.


Jul 11, 2022

I felt like Kai understood me even though this session was essentially a questionnaire. I was very pleased by how much he knew about OCD because I have felt helpless until now as far as nobody knowing exactly what OCD is. I’m so excited for our future sessions!


Jul 07, 2022

Kai is wonderful. He really works hard at hearing and understanding my daughter. And making steps to fight OCD in a way she can understand and at her pace.


Jul 06, 2022

Kai McBride is excellent!! Superlatives truly characterize each and every trait of his work.


Jul 06, 2022

My therapist, Kai, has been quite honestly one of the best therapists I’ve ever had. I can’t even begin to put into words how grateful I am. I know I still have work to do but I do feel like I’m on the other side of the seemingly daunting mountain of OCD. I think I expected some sort of fanfare reflected in my life or the feeling of a miracle unfolding with recovery but instead it’s a subtle getting back to “normal” for me, which is actually very freeing and I may have never truly or fully experienced it before now. THANK YOU KAI!!!


Apr 28, 2022

Before NOCD I had a therapist who pushed me too hard and with little tracking. I was just spinning in anxiety for a very long time instead of progressing. Now, with my NOCD therapist, Kai, from day one, we have been moving gently, yet consistently and clearly, through my OCD therapy to where I am very much feeling the other side of things. It feels like getting my life back, but better.


Apr 21, 2022

I am astounded by the amount of ease I am starting to feel. I cannot say thank you enough. My therapist is helping me get my life back in ways I hadn’t even realized were hindered by OCD. He has created such a safe space in our work together that I have been able and more willing to push myself and am seeing huge improvement. Which feels like an understatement actually. It really pays to push through and I am beyond grateful for the skilled and thoughtful guidance of my therapist.


Mar 20, 2022

Understanding my tendency toward “just right” OCD has been a game changer for me. Forever grateful for my therapist.


Mar 16, 2022

Having the online sessions relieves a lot of stress on me and makes me less likely to cancel and reschedule. I work a night shift schedule so now more than ever it makes it more complicated to go to a therapist office. I love the online app. You can have quick access and get a response fairly quick just like with some medical apps with your doctor. Some people don't like it but it works very well for me.


Mar 01, 2022

My therapist is helping me feel human again.


Feb 07, 2022

I feel myself actually moving through things. I am so thankful


Feb 03, 2022

I feel more hopeful about working through my ocd than I ever have before.


Jan 27, 2022

It feels like a relief to have been able to rattle off a bunch of weird ocd things I do mostly in secret and be met with care and also nonchalance about the content of my OCD thoughts. I felt normal. So good.
