OCD and anxiety are related but different. My ability to empathize and be solution-focused work in both treatment cases. Outside of work, I love writing, art, and swimming.

Get to know Marie Albertson

My best friend in high school was being treated for depression and anxiety. She had a great therapist who really helped her be successful and go on to become a doctor after graduation. I decided I wanted to help people in the same way. I like seeing people begin to start living their best life.

I have years of experience in treating anxiety and love the CBT modality. It was a good extension into working with OCD. ERP is over 80% effective when adhered to. It works for most people.

I also focus on generalized anxiety disorder. Anxiety is one of the 'common colds' of mental illness. So many people have some form of anxiety and I like being able to help people become their best self.

Please know that therapy is a safe space to talk about things and that you can be honest here.

Know that I have heard most things that a person could share. Therapy is a no-shame, no-blame zone.

It's great to have help with dealing with OCD and know I can use ERP to break the spin cycles OCD wants to keep me in. Thankful Marie has laid out steps to take to move through it.

I couldn't be happier with the OCD healing journey and how Marie helps me get through dealing with the stupid OCD monster that follows me everywhere. She helped me face my biggest fears head on. No way around them just learning to go through them.

My symptoms are way down. Marie helped me to realize this is no big deal to live with ocd. I got this.

I ask a lot of questions and Marie is always helpful at guiding me with metaphors, psychology research, and ERP to make for well rounded sessions. I feel like she's nuanced to your individual concerns and I've noticed my OCD has become more manageable since doing sessions with her. She's also good at helping me when I have bumps in recovery road. I highly recommend her!

I feel heard and understood.


Apr 10, 2023

Marie was so comforting throughout exposure therapy - balancing being mindful and understanding as to not give me reassurance I compulsively seek, but to calmly guide me to accept myself. She was able to pick up instantly on emotions I had difficulty communicating, teaching me exercises to calm myself. I feel like I’ve gained back control over my life and can begin to let go of a lot of fear. I’m excited to continue my journey, and I’m very happy I chose to commit to exposure therapy.


Mar 30, 2023

Marie was wonderful. She was very kind and I never felt judged. I feel confident that working with her will help me.
