For me, therapy is a journey. It's my privilege to walk with people and help them get to where they want to go. To me, this is a partnership. I don't lead my sessions. You lead our sessions, and I work as a guide. You are your own best expert on your life. When I'm not doing therapy, I have a lot of hobbies. I love to crochet, and I am an avid Winnie the Pooh fan.

Any kind of therapy is a process. This is not a sprint, it's usually a marathon, and there are going to be periods of setbacks. And that's OK. That's why we do this together. My focus is on progress, not perfection.

NOCD is helping me regain freedoms in the many areas of my life that were stunted by intrusive thoughts. I have had the pleasure of working with Catherine Nakonetschny and Dr. Nick Farrell. It's a blessing having knowledgeable practitioners to help me make tremendous progress in conquering certain fear based thoughts. I feel like I am becoming a new person and the sense of hope and peace of mind that comes with joining NOCD is paramount. OCD is still so highly misunderstood and it's a relief to finally find people who truly understand the angst and frustration it brings. Their passion and dedication to helping people recover and live their best lives is a true testament to the wonderful help NOCD provides.

Cathy was great with my daughter. I trust her judgement and am confident my daughter is getting the help she needs!!

I loved how my therapist was able to relate her own struggles that are similar to mine into our session, and it made me feel more seen and that I wasn’t alone. It also made me feel comfortable to know that someone who has had similar experiences to me is more understanding of my situation and more than willing to help.
