Anna Newton


Licensed Therapist, LPC


As a therapist, I want you to be comfortable and feel cared for, to feel like you can talk to me like you're talking to a friend. I'm here for you. You're going to be okay, and you're in good hands. We're in this together. Some fun facts about me: I love animals and have two cats and two dogs. I was in the Air Force and once got a chance to go to Antarctica on a scientific mission.

Come into OCD treatment with an open mind. That can be hard if you're having a lot of thoughts and fears. But this is your treatment, we will go at your own pace, and there's a good team here at NOCD to support you.

Get to know Anna Newton

I love working with people. I've always had a caring, nurturing personality, even as a child. My mother was very much the same—she was always there to care for people and help anybody in need. So I was influenced by that as well. Also, people in my family have struggled with mental health issues, and that made me want to know more about the human mind and why people struggle with anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. In general, I'm fascinated by the mind and how it works.

I've always been fascinated by anxiety disorders, which are closely related to OCD. I have anxiety myself. I have worked with people with OCD, anxiety, and ADHD, and it's fascinating how they can be intertwined and play off one another. I wanted to gain a better understanding of OCD and how to best help people with it.

I have quite a bit of experience with depression, generalized anxiety disorder, ADHD, and social anxiety. I've also worked with severe mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar, and schizoaffective disorder.

Go in with an open mind. That can be hard if you're having a lot of fears about many different things. But know that treatment is going to be at your own pace. This is for you. This is your treatment, and what you put in is what you're going to get out of it. It’s normal to feel afraid, but give it a chance. There's a good team here at NOCD to support you.

Take your time. I'm not going to force you to say anything you don't feel comfortable with. Let's take time to build rapport, an environment where you feel more comfortable talking about these things. In the meantime, let's talk about the things you do feel comfortable with. It'll come when it comes.

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

Wonderful, patient therapist. Very knowledgeable, really knows her stuff. My teen daughter struggling with severe OCD - intrusive thoughts. Anna has been a great help. We have a long way to go but we can see a little difference after each session. Very caring and supportive. Thank you Anna.

I found NOOCD when I first found out what I was dealing with was anxiety. While the therapy was good at first, I began realizing that the therapist was not getting to the root of my anxiety. We were just doing exposure therapy and thats it. There was no talk therapy about what may actually be underneath the fears. Just exposures. As I have learned with experience and doing different therapy, exposure therapy is def not the “gold standard” for treating OCD. Getting to the root of what is behind the intrusive thought or fear, and learning to feel your feelings is what actually solves OCD. I would suggest the work of Sheryl Paul if you really want to recover from OCD. Neurofeedback has been a life changer for me as well with managing the OCD. I think beyond exposures, NOOCD needs to teach their therapists to get to the root of what is underneath the fears and work with that.
