About

As a therapist, I like to create an environment that feels laid-back and direct, not sterile or clinical. It's my goal just to show up as myself. I'm also a very direct therapist, and I don't sugarcoat things. I do deep work to ensure you're working toward your goals, but you're the one who is driving the treatment. Fun facts about me: I have a hamster named Moody, I play the ukulele, and I really love to do karaoke.

From my personal and professional experience, I know that people start to heal the moment they feel heard. I'm here to listen to you, and to help you find relief from your struggles with OCD.

Get to know Jordan Driskell

I grew up in a small town, where access to care was very limited. When I was in high school, I struggled a lot with managing my emotions and responding to my environment. I want to be the person that I needed at that time. Because therapy wasn't available to me, I set out to make myself part of a clinical practice that offered access to effective care.

I am diagnosed with OCD myself, and it's something I've received treatment for. I wanted to provide support to other people who struggle with something I'm familiar with. I know how difficult it can be and how important it is to get the right care.

In addition to OCD and anxiety disorders, I work a lot with mood disorders, primarily bipolar disorder and depression. I also work with personality disorders, such as borderline. Many people I work with for OCD also have co-occurring substance use disorders.

This is a process. Trust and lean into the process. Sometimes it feels like it's getting worse before it gets better. Allow yourself to advocate for what you need, as you're working through different experiences with your therapist. We're working to help you overcome what you're going through.

Call attention to that. Just say, 'Hey, I'm afraid right now to share this with you,' and invite that into the room. Writing down some of those thoughts might be easier than speaking them out loud. That way, they're still received, and we can work through that.

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

I cannot express enough gratitude to my therapist Jordan. She has been so instrumental in my journey with overcoming OCD. I get to live a life that honors who I truly am, not what OCD tries to convince me today. Thank you Jordan for helping me finally experience what a quiet mind feels like. I think anyone would be beyond lucky to have her as a therapist, so if it wasn’t clear already, I cannot recommend her enough ☺️

My therapist Jordan is funny, down-to-earth, relatable, and knowledgeable and knows exactly how to treat and respond to anything I am experiencing or mention. It makes me feel confident that I will be successful in managing my OCD since she (and NOCD) knows exactly how to treat it. It is refreshing coming from traditional talk therapy which was not helpful to me.

Imagine if a bird clung to its nest forever, afraid to explore the vast skies. It might be safe in its nest, but it would never experience the exhilaration of soaring high above. In the same way, our compulsions may offer temporary comfort, but they also imprison us within the cycle of OCD. The magic of life lies beyond our comfort zones. It's in the uncharted territories where we discover our true potential, where growth and transformation happen. It's where we find the beauty of the unknown and the strength to face challenges head-on. So, today, make a choice to break free from the chains of compulsions. Embrace the uncertainty, for it is the soil from which your dreams can blossom. Step out of your comfort zone and into the limitless expanse of possibility. Remember, it's not about living a life without fear, but about facing your fears with courage. Let go of what holds you back, and you'll find the world waiting to embrace you with open arms. 🚀 🦅Embrace the unknown. Break free from compulsions. Live your life to the fullest! 🚀 🦅

You're always presented with the choice: a compulsion that relieves me temporarily or living a life I value. Obviously that choice can be a difficult one to make at first, but NOCD therapists are here to help you get the relief you deserve.

Alright, I'm just going to be one of those therapist's who shares all the random analogies that come to mind during sessions.. haha... so here we go again! I've been telling my members that my OCD feels like the stray cat that shows up at my door everyday... every time the cat has shown up I would give it a treat and feed it. I know, that every single time I feed this cat it will keep showing up at my door. Without fail, same time the next day this orange cat shows up... Then I stopped feeding the cat.. and guess what it.. after a few days of not getting my treats.... it didn't show up! Eventually the cat decided it wasn't going to get what it needed from me anymore and gave up trying. I had to change my response to it to get a different result. OCD IS THE SAME WAY! if you keep feeding it (with compulsions, fear responses, etc) it will keep showing up... if you change your response (use response prevention) it will eventually not even try.
