Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD
OCD therapist Kimberlee Glassner, Licensed Therapist, MS, LPC, Licensed OCD Therapist

Kimberlee Glassner

Licensed Therapist, MS, LPC


As a therapist, I really try to orient the people I work with to the nature of OCD, and why ERP works and other therapies don't. You'll learn about the fear structure and how to break the OCD cycle. A fun fact about me: I'm from Wyoming—I've lived there my whole life—and I like to get out, enjoy the outdoors and go on camping trips when the weather allows.

OCD therapy might seem scary. But trust me as we begin this journey. You're going to see rewards. You'll be able to live without OCD being in the driver's seat of your life.

Get to know Kimberlee Glassner

I always had an interest in psychology and a passion for helping people. Somebody helped me when I was a young adult, and I wanted to kind of pay that forward.

When pursuing my undergraduate degree, I worked with a professor who specialized in OCD, anxiety disorders, and particularly in exposure and response prevention therapy. I really took an interest in that and have continued to practice ERP, along with CBT and DBT, throughout my entire career.

I have experience treating the full spectrum of anxiety disorders, depression, general adjustment disorder, and body-focused repetitive behaviors. I also have a background in dialectical behavioral therapy for personality disorders.

I recognize that OCD therapy might seem scary, and it seems kind of counterintuitive to what you want to do—you want to continue avoidance and other compulsions that provide short-term relief. But trust me as we go on this journey. It's going to be difficult at first, but you're going to see rewards. You'll be able to live without OCD being in the driver's seat of your life.

Let me know. Tell me you're afraid to share your thoughts. We can begin to unpack that and see what that's about, and then how we can start moving towards a solution. You should also know that I have sat in the therapist's chair for a long time. Nothing you're going to tell me is going to be a shock to me, or something I haven't heard before.

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

What our members say about
Kimberlee Glassner


Mar 21, 2024

Kim Glassner is the best! She is caring, kind and worked hard to help me get to where I am today. I have been working with her for just under a year and in that time she has changed my life. She has always been accommodating when I needed an extra session or when I would reach out though messages. I never felt judged and always felt comfortable to share my thoughts with her. She is the only therapist I have worked with for OCD and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience through the hardest of times.


Jan 16, 2024

It's going a bit slower now, but I'm working through things that have held me back beforehand, and so this is still very helpful.


Jan 08, 2024

Kimberlee is so great and I really enjoy working with her


Nov 20, 2023

My therapist has been extremely helpful in managing my OCD. She's wonderful.


Nov 16, 2023

Kim is probably the most helpful and greatest therapist I have ever had. I don't always like to do what she tells me, but I know and truly feel that she wants what is best for me, and wants to see me get better and has really helped me do so.


Nov 15, 2023

I have never felt more supported. My life has truly changed for the better. I am more confident than I could have ever imagined. I just started a new job that I would not have been able to survive at 3 months ago when all of my compulsions took over my life and my thoughts.


Nov 14, 2023

Kimberlee has been so caring and kind during this process. She has helped SO much, and Zoey has progressed leaps and bounds. Thank you so, so much.


Nov 07, 2023

It’s so amazing having a therapist with the SAME issues I’m having (trich) because I KNOW she understand exactly how I’m feeling and not just saying it. She also provides really good insight on how she copes with it and that is huge for me.


Oct 14, 2023

Really encourages me with my progress!


Oct 14, 2023

These sessions have made such a positive impact on my well-being


Oct 14, 2023

The support and empathy she has provided has been so helpful


Oct 14, 2023

These sessions have been life changing!!


Oct 14, 2023

She has provided the best support through this process!!


Oct 11, 2023

I have really appreciated working with Dr. Glassner and have improved and felt a lot of relief since I began.


Oct 10, 2023

It was the first time I’ve met someone with trich. She was so calm and soft spoken it helped me relax. She was very good at listening to me talk.


Oct 03, 2023

Is positive and funny.


Sep 28, 2023

Talked about residential treatment somewhere. Really going through a rough spell. Said I would do ERP somewhere but not while living here at ASSISTED LIVING. Maybe I will get back to KIM. This present week I am so busy I can't make a decision like that


Sep 28, 2023

Kim is the absolute BEST!!!!! She has helped our son so so much!!! We are so grateful!!


Sep 19, 2023

Kim was great for my first session. She confirmed my diagnosis and clearly laid out what we’ll be doing in treatment!


Sep 04, 2023

She was nice and understanding


Aug 17, 2023

Kim is absolutely amazing, she has helped our son so much!! She is giving him the tools and the confidence to feel comfortable being back at school this year, we are so grateful for her!!


Aug 17, 2023

We are very pleades with ny son's therapist. Kim Glassner. She is very knowledgeable and professional with kindness and patience. My son is benefitting from her services.


Aug 01, 2023

I was really impressed by her.


Jul 21, 2023

This is an extremely helpful app. My therapist Kim was a perfect fit. She offered just the right, careful amount of empathy and was so patient while ultimately challenging me and setting me on the road to success. One of my favorite things about the therapy is that when I was totally spiraling at various points, she remained calm and helped me look at very tough, heavy situations through a light-hearted lens, never feeding into my spinning out, rather grounding me in reality. She showed me that uncomfortable feelings are part of life and to shrug off the bad days and move FORWARD! she showed me that everyone has struggles and I don’t have to stay stuck in disappointment but can instead turn to gratitude and acceptance. Other talk therapy has kept me stuck in a victim mentality. This therapy sets you free. It’s hard…scary and counterintuitive at times but it works and I’m so thankful for it!


Jul 20, 2023

I continue to appreciate her patience and ability to give me practical ways to deal with my struggles.


Jul 17, 2023

Couldn't feel more supported! An amazing difference. I don't know where we would be without her.


Jul 13, 2023

Overall, I’ve had a very good experience with my therapist at NOCD. We started the therapy several months ago and have ended very recently. I certainly have seen large improvements in dealing with my obsessions. They are still there; I don’t expect them to go away, but I’m in a much better space in managing them. My therapist, Kim, has been incredible throughout this process: she was approachable, open, and I never felt judged. She was also culturally responsive, not pushing me for things linked with my cultural values. I’m hopeful that I’ll retain my gains and I know that I can continue using the NOCD resources to help me.


Jul 12, 2023

I am excited to work with my therapist. She seems very knowledgeable and it makes me confident in her abilities to help me as well as eager to attend next session so I can start getting better.


Jul 07, 2023

I definitely liked Kim and feel confident in her abilities to help me. She did sometimes cut my responses short but I think that was good because I tend to be chatty since I struggled feeling heard as a child. I was satisfied with how she would interpret my response and reply with analytical thinking.


Jun 29, 2023

I can’t even believe I’ve come this far. I couldn’t have done this without Kim’s help. Thank you so much for all you do, and this therapy platform. I have confidence I can tackle anything now. OCD doesn’t get to win anymore!!


Jun 16, 2023

It was such a pleasure to have a chance to work with Kim! She is empathetic, good-spirited, knowledgable, and very easy to talk to. I never felt judged by her, and I feel more equipped to deal with my symptoms after even just a few sessions. An easy five stars, wish I had a chance to meet with her more!


Jun 12, 2023

This is difficult but Kim does a great job of making it approachable and understandable.


May 22, 2023

I felt very supported and heard and look forward to working with Dr. Glassner further!


May 03, 2023

Starting to taper down my appointments because I’m nearing the end. Don’t think I could get through this relapse of OCD without having gone through this therapy. So glad I took a leap of faith and tried it. Kim has helped me have confidence that I can do this. So grateful to have my life back and it’s not controlled by OCD anymore. If you’re on the fence with therapy, don’t be! Just take the leap. Kim will help you.


May 03, 2023

She’s very kind and I appreciate her listening skills


Apr 22, 2023

We scheduled a ERP appointment outside my apartment. Kim said this can easily done on my phone. .


Apr 20, 2023

Kim has been amazing with my son!


Apr 11, 2023

Kim is fantastic. She is very poised and well-educated. I feel as though I can trust her with my mental health.


Mar 29, 2023



Mar 27, 2023

I feel like I can accomplish anything with Kim’s help. She has been great.


Mar 11, 2023

KIM IS encouraging. Anxiety is not fun. She gives me some ERP's to do. I start Equine Therapy next Weds.


Feb 28, 2023

She has me doing some ERP at Assisted living center where I live. Anxiety is strong.


Feb 18, 2023

We did some ERP. Talk about the future. A good session.


Feb 15, 2023

Going to meet with VA Psychiatrist on Thursday.


Feb 12, 2023

Very helpful.


Feb 02, 2023

My first OCD memories stem from ages as early as the 1st grade. However, it is not until now at age 26 that I report with confidence that OCD is no longer something that controls my life. Upon starting NOCD, my mind and my life was wrapped up in an OCD bubble that I thought was protecting me. Kim helped me uncover my core fears and expose me to them in a way that challenged me. Yet, these challenges empowered me and equipped me with the mindset that I can still do things when I am anxious or uncomfortable. I am not a sit down and talk about my feelings kind of person. Everything I did with Kim in our sessions felt action-based and intentional. I didn’t mind sharing because I knew there would be an actionable outcome, rather than me rambling for what feels like hours and then a therapist prodding more into, “and how do you feel about that?”. With Kim and NOCD, I made drastic changes in my life in 4 months. ERP is the ONLY treatment that has even scraped the surface on guiding my path to mental freedom and stability. I would recommend NOCD to anyone who suffers from their OCD- even to those who don’t think therapy is their thing or can help their current situation. Fear is no longer a perpetual feeling in my mind and body, and for that I thank myself, Kim, and NOCD. Best of luck to everyone 💛


Jan 24, 2023

Very helpful and caring but firm and insightful


Jan 14, 2023

I still cannot believe how much better I feel NOW versus last Halloween, which is when I reached out to NOCD for the first time out of sheer desperation. I still battle my OCD almost daily, but I went from feeling like a prisoner of my own mind to now feeling in command of my unwanted intrusive thoughts. Although ERP therapy is one of the most DIFFICULT things I've ever had to do, it is also the BEST thing that could have happened to me. Kim has been absolutely fantastic-- her wisdom & guidance have been a key to my positive results thus far. Both she and the tools available thru the NOCD app are teaching me to be my own "mechanic". Thank you Kim and NOCD!


Jan 12, 2023

Kim has been so great for my son!


Jan 12, 2023

A great first session! Looking forward to my next session and healing my ROCD


Jan 12, 2023

Kim and ERP were able to help me immensely. I began therapy with her because my OCD was getting unbearable and I was super depressed. Therapy and exposure response prevention (ERP) with Kim helped me become more empowered and have better responses to my obsessive thoughts and compulsions. Thank you Kim!


Dec 22, 2022

Kim and ERP have changed my life. When I first came into contact with her we hadn’t yet had our first session but I was reaching out frequently, desperate for help. I felt hopeless and depressed and had thoughts of suicide being the only way out of this if it didn’t stop. Compulsions weren’t bringing relief anymore. I felt the lowest I’d ever felt and didn’t feel like it would get better. “If it got this bad once…why wouldn’t it keep getting this bad all the time?” Is what I thought. ERP was SO much easier, more gradual, and more transformative than I was expecting. If OCD tells us anything, it’s that we’re not gonna be able to handle our bad experiences. Therapy was hard at times but I can’t stress this enough, the alternative is much harder. A life controlled by OCD is so much harder than even the scariest parts of therapy. If you’ve handled this much anxiety/guilt/shame/depression/pain…you can handle the treatment! I would recommend this treatment more passionately than I’d recommend anything else. Especially with Kim!! ❤️


Dec 15, 2022

Kim is great. Very engaging and thoughtful. Very knowledgeable and helpful.


Dec 05, 2022

I always love getting to check in and inform her of my progress! She always reminds me of my exposure mission and makes me feel like I’m progressing!


Nov 30, 2022

I just want to say thank you to Kim. She has done an amazing job and I am recovery. It has been a journey and I’m glad she has been apart of it. She is compassionate but also knows OCD inside and out. She has helped me through various forms of ERPs.


Nov 30, 2022

These sessions are so helpful!


Nov 23, 2022

Beyond grateful for Kim! She has truly changed my life for the better and I’m blessed to have found her.


Nov 22, 2022

Kim has been my favorite therapist I’ve ever had! She’s incredible!


Nov 11, 2022

It was emotional, but wow was the session enlightening!


Oct 27, 2022

Kim has done a great job of helping me to get better and understand my OCD
