Misti Slaughter

Licensed Therapist, LCPC


I will bring my all to every session and provide empathy and support throughout your journey. A fun fact: My “therapy dog” Jack loves to lay in my office and sleep during sessions. You may hear him on occasion groaning or grumbling that we are making too much noise and interrupting his nap!

Get to know Misti Slaughter

For as long as I can remember, I have been deeply empathetic. As a child, I didn’t understand what this was, except that I cared and felt profoundly for everyone around me. This, of course, led to a desire to help others find joy and strength in themselves. Seeing the pieces start to come together for someone—to hear them express more comfort in their daily lives and believe in themselves—is, for me, the most fulfilling aspect of being a therapist.

I was excited to find that OCD is so treatable! The idea that there was a treatment (ERP) that had such a proven effect on something so debilitating made the idea of specializing a no-brainer. I get to offer hope, with research behind it.

I started my career specializing in substance abuse treatment. Over the years, I have worked in community behavioral health, hospital settings, and primary care practices, in addition to private practice based solely online. In substance abuse counseling, I had a strong desire to support those who are often maligned and judged harshly by society. My goal is to advocate for better understanding and more compassion for those who struggle with mental health and addiction-based issues.

Sharing your innermost thoughts is hard. Our time together will always be a safe space where you can share anything without judgment or penalty. You can say that you are afraid to share something, and we’ll work together to help you get there.
