Get to know Justin Trout

Starting when I was young, through some personal experiences, I have felt called to help people. I feel like people go down a path where they can choose the right or the wrong way. People have an ability within themselves to overcome obstacles. I just think some people need help seeing that; I want to help people see their own potential. In my family, I've seen the effects of bipolar disorder and major depression. I've seen how they can transform into other issues for a person and their entire support network. That's part of why I wanted to go into mental health. Personally, I sometimes struggle with seasonal depression. I saw a therapist for a while, and it was very effective for me. It did me a lot of good to talk about it. Other people can give you a perspective that you may not have yourself.

I started off working for a community state agency, and I was ready to help more people. NOCD has given me the opportunity to grow professionally, to meet more people, and to help more people. And I love seeing the outcome of therapy. I love seeing people overcome those hills and valleys and by the end of therapy be able to say, 'I feel better.' It’s always been satisfying to see people overcome their challenges.

Straight out of college, I worked at a therapeutic day treatment center that specialized in crisis stabilization. I specialized in CBT, DBT, and solution-focused therapy. I love working with people. Everybody has a story. Every story is valuable. I think the world is much better when we listen to each other's stories. If you can tell me your story, and there's any way I can add to it, that is an honor for me.

There's no overnight fix. It's going to take time. The best thing to do is take that first step. You can't expect to walk away after the first session feeling “cured,” but you can walk away feeling hopeful. In my work, I've learned to be very empathetic, very person-centered. My skill set allows me to focus on you as an individual. You're the center of my world for that hour. I will treat you with compassion and unconditional positivity. I will connect with you to better understand your situation.

I definitely understand where you're coming from. Sharing is a big step to healing. If you don't feel comfortable sharing with me today, let's just get to know each other. Let's build that rapport. When you get to where you can trust me, we can really start digging into the problem. And if you feel like it's not working, talk to me. If I can't help you, I'll find somebody that can. Don't give up.

Oct 25, 2023

Justin is a great listener! Even though ERP is incredibly difficult and makes me feel safe and heard every time. Also, I’ve recently been processing my dad death , which is very complicated for me and he’s been wonderful helping me work through that.

Justin is an excellent therapist. Me and my son love him.


Oct 02, 2023

I’m only two sessions in, and I feel very hopeful. Justin is a super nice guy with a great sense of humor, and I feel very seen and heard.

We even managed a few good laughs

Justin Trout was an excellent therapist. He got straight to the point and explained things in a clear and concise manner. He was very respectful of my background, circumstances, and opinions, and adjusted as needed. He was very supportive and the therapy has been effective. I’m so grateful!

Justin always goes above and beyond. I know he cares, and he truly is happy for my achievements. I couldn’t ask for a better Therapist!


Jul 23, 2023

I have had a wonderful experience in my 10 months of treatment. The therapist I have been working with is amazing. He takes time to educate me as well as to help work through problems and symptoms with my OCD. I love that this is therapy catered to what I need as opposed to general therapy.


Jul 23, 2023

Unfortunately, my experience with NOCD has been very disatisfactory. I have been waiting for weeks for a therapist. A few weeks into signing up I was connected with a therapist that I knew was not a fit so I respectfully, politely requested a transfer. I've been waiting weeks for another therapist. Each week or two I'll get a message that says they are working on it but no help ever comes. I was paying out of pocket for my therapy as my insurance does not cover it. They offered me an initial discount that would last 2 months I believe and now I'm well over that time bc I have been waiting to be matched with a therapist, which NOCD has failed to do. Could really use the help but sadly I have very little faith in NOCD based on my experiences. Best of luck to everyone else.


Jul 21, 2023

Having had OCD for 30 years, it was wonderful to come across this program. Living in a rural area, services are limited. To have knowledgeable counselors who not only understood but had the correct treatment methods was a blessing. I highly recommend NOCD.

Feb 12, 2023

Justin showed me today that he really has been listening to me. In our session he knew exactly what would bring out the things in me that needed to come out. It feels really good to be heard, and I can already see positive changes happening. So grateful.


Feb 09, 2023

Justin provided invaluable help over the last year. I am very grateful. The exposures we performed and the tools we practiced (sitting with anxiety and accepting uncertainty) have greatly changed my relationship with my OCD. I have been choosing to accept risk and uncertainty, and I have found that my anxiety has been less intense and has subsided much faster. I will continue to practice what I learned and I am hopeful. Thank you


Feb 09, 2023

Went above and beyond. Justin took the time to listen to me when I broke down, and talked me through it with kindness, empathy, and understanding.

Dec 12, 2022

Another great session with Justin! I appreciate his patience and flexibility during our sessions


Dec 05, 2022

I cannot thank Justin enough for his help in gaining a better understanding of my OCD. He helped me understand that I wasn’t alone, and really helped me see my patterns. Our sessions were always great, Justin genuinely cares about people and I felt like he really joined me on this part of my journey. I’m not cured, but it’s like the OCD dial got turned down in general & I don’t get as bothered (or sometimes bothered at all!) for many things that used to trigger me greatly. I’m very lucky that I was able to add NOCD to my ongoing therapy and medication and get some REAL benefits. I feel like Justin really helped me start the next chapter of my life - and I’m excited about the possibilities!


Nov 30, 2022

Very thoughtful and dedicated


Nov 28, 2022

Jul 06, 2022

I feel like I finally have hope for my ROCD and trichotillomania!!! I doing my exposures and making progress! I'm taking Justin's guidance and I see that I can have some freedom from OCD.


Jun 22, 2022

Justin and the NOCD program changed my life. I was on medication for the better part of a decade that certainly helped but did not fully treat OCD. After 3 months of sessions, I am a different person. My OCD has become a very manageable part of my life and I am much happier and healthier. I also now have the skills to tackle OCD as it rises up. And guess what? I was able to completely discontinue my medication. That was unthinkable 6 months ago. I still have work to do but Justin, a caring and dedicated therapist, has given me the tools to do it. He is insightful, humble, and adaptive. A true testament to the power of exposure therapy in the hands of a caring and educated practitioner.


Jun 14, 2022

Justin is great and very attentive


Feb 23, 2022

He made a great connection with ours son. I’m hopeful he’ll be able to help him.
