Christina Garges


Licensed Therapist, LCSW


As a therapist, I value forming a relationship with the people I work with. I bring a lot of curiosity into my work, and I invite you to be curious about yourself as well. You will find understanding and compassion in session; this is a judgment-free zone. A fun fact about me: I've been practicing muay thai kickboxing for the past four years. I love how much it challenges me mentally as I use my body and brain together. It's built my confidence, and it's continued to humble me.

Working on yourself through OCD therapy can be very rewarding. It can feel really good at times, even when it’s challenging, like anything that leads to growth. It takes collaboration and consistent effort, but it really works.

Get to know Christina Garges

I've always been interested in getting to know people in a deeper way. From a young age, I knew I was skilled at being a good listener, being empathetic, and being present for other people. Becoming a therapist was a natural next step.

ERP, the therapeutic intervention for OCD, can produce really tangible, really fast results. It can truly help people in an efficient way.

I have a lot of experience working with depression, anxiety, complex trauma, attachment wounds, grief, and loss.

Doing work on yourself can be very rewarding. It takes collaboration and consistent effort. It can feel really good at times, and at times it can be challenging, like any type of growth. Progress often can come from an uncomfortable place, where you have to sit and work through things that are not pleasant.

Let me know you're afraid. We can talk about the feelings that are coming up around the thoughts. That can help soothe, ease, and create understanding as we move towards discussing what's uncomfortable.

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

Chris into gas walked me through some very challenging stuff but I always feel like she listens and meets me where I am. Even better, she’s helped me be able to identify organically occurring opportunities to practice ERP on my own. I’m very appreciative of her!

We’ve had a couple emotionally charged appointments, and this one was pretty heavy for me. Christina is really sensitive and her approach is trauma-informed while always bringing it back to exposures response. She’s very skilled and I feel really lucky that I’ve been matched up with her.

I had a difficult experience a few days ago that brought back a lot of old compulsions that scared me. Christina showed a lot of empathy but also made me think about how being accountable to myself would benefit me in the long run. She’s very skilled and I’m endlessly grateful for her.
