As a therapist, I'm very humanistic. I believe your treatment should be guided by you. I encourage you to have compassion for yourself as you learn to recognize that you are not your thoughts. When I'm not doing therapy, I enjoy acrylic painting. I love doing 'dirty pours,' where you pour a bunch of paints together on a canvas, and a piece begins to take the shape of its very own unique, individual self.

In therapy, It's important to be patient with yourself. The goal is progress, not perfection. As a team, we'll get there. You'll learn to become comfortable sitting inside of your feelings, and learning how to cope with your fears in a new way.

I think NOCD is a horrible way to get help for OCD these people don't care and this is not a good way at all to get treatment. After talking to someone from this app I felt even more alone and I thought I would never be able to manage my OCD or find someone who can help. They made me feel crazy and I never wanted to open up about my OCD again. The way they try to get you to manage it is horrible and doesn't work. I don't know if I just had a lot going on or if they made a horrible decision creating this app but people who are really struggling with OCD need more than what NOCD has to offer!!! I had hope downloading this app, I thought I would finally have some relief until I got deeper into it. I was just in an outpatient facility for four months to get treatment for my OCD and learned useful ways to manage these thoughts and urges. They taught me how to be myself again after years of hiding out just to avoid my triggers, they also taught me countless ways to stop ruminating and to stop my mental rituals, NOCD would've never done that. I would still be stuck on that constant cycle trying to battle OCD.

Arielle is lovely. She assured me that while I have struggled with OCD for a very long time, so long that I trust the process, my tendencies should get more like those of a functioning human being.

I had an educational appointment to help a close friend who was recently diagnosed with OCD. After reading a lot about OCD, I wasn't sure how to handle some situations. My therapist helped me clarify ways I can help my friend.

I feel like it was a good fit for me. I like how she encouraged me tell her as much as possible so it was not like an interview. And when I wanted it to be like an interview she was happy to switch her style to accommodate me.
