OCD therapist LISA DE GUZMAN, Licensed Therapist, LCSW, PPSC, Licensed OCD Therapist


Licensed Therapist, LCSW, PPSC


First and foremost, I want you to feel like you're heard and not judged. You're not alone in this; there is help. I will help you build confidence and a new skill set—you can develop the skills to live a really healthy life. A fun fact about me: My new self-care activity is transforming a Ford Transit so my husband and I can spend time in nature and settle back into the universe. It's a beautiful thing.

Get to know LISA DE GUZMAN

I'm 20 years into my experience in the mental health field, and I've gone through my own personal journey. I have my own experience with OCD, and part of why I became a therapist is to guide people through the journey that I took myself—helping people to reach a place of awareness and understanding, and to lead a healthy lifestyle.

I live with anxiety and a mild form of OCD. As a therapist, I wanted to learn more about OCD specifically. It's such a specialized population to work with; it's such a unique experience, and there aren't enough therapists who are able to treat it.

In my career, I have developed an intensive outpatient program that specializes in anxiety, trauma, PTSD, and depression. Outside of OCD, those are the four primary conditions I have experience treating.

ERP is an evidence-based practice. NOCD gives therapists a high degree of expertise and training, and that translates into the experiences of our members. I will put you first—you will be able to gain a skill set in an environment where you're not judged. If you put in the effort, you will see results. And NOCD offers a lot of other resources, including an app for around-the-clock support and consistent practice between sessions.

Know that it's normal to be scared; it's normal to feel uncomfortable. But the more you push past discomfort, the more you'll be able to gain more comfort. You may feel a lack of confidence—perhaps people have put you down before. But even if something didn't work before, it may work today. You may have a different therapist or be in a different environment, but at NOCD, where you are is exactly where you need to be.

NOCD therapists are trained by our world-renowned clinical leadership team.

Lisa is an incredible therapist because she helps me every week to become my own ERP therapist. Living with OCD means the most powerful tools are ones you carry with you daily and she has given me countless tools & resources. She is also very caring, a great listener and I manage to laugh every session. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her and I am forever grateful for her!

I had my second session with Lisa today. I had been working with a therapist from here since September but they left. I was so concerned about finding the right match to continue therapy. I am so grateful I am placed with Lisa! She is giving me the tools I need to grow and learn. Lisa is excellent! She knows so much and explained some things to me I did not consciously realize I do as compulsions. I feel so positive about working with Lisa! I am going to get stronger with the knowledge and information she is giving me to fight this OCD. I am very glad to be working with Lisa!
