Christopher Leonard


Licensed Therapist, LMHC


I understand that your thoughts, triggers, or compulsions are all unique to you. I know it can be extremely hard to share them. I make a point to understand each person's particular experience as well as I possibly can. I believe that we can only improve the ERP work we do together. A little bit about me: I love all things music! I also enjoy going to the gym and trying new restaurants.

Sessions are a safe, nonjudgmental space to share anything you've been experiencing and want to overcome.

Get to know Christopher Leonard

I love helping people and seeing the genuine change and transformation they can go through when they work on themselves and learn to face their fears.

I know how much OCD can disrupt someone's life and the torture it can put them through. Being able to help people get freedom from that cycle with a proven, effective treatment is very special to me.

I have worked extensively with people dealing with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder. I started working with those diagnoses during graduate school, and continued on that path for several years.

Sessions are a safe, nonjudgmental space to share anything you've been experiencing and want to overcome. Facing your fears can seem like a daunting task, especially at first. We will work together to create a treatment plan that is tailored to you and will help you change that fear into empowerment.

You are never forced to share anything! It can take time to get comfortable enough with someone to share these thoughts. I will support and encourage you without ever pressuring you. You'll see nothing is off-limits to discuss in session when it comes to your symptoms and mental health. With time, I hope it becomes easier to share.

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

Chris is everything I needed in a therapist. He made me feel less alone and gave me the hand I needed on this scary journey. Extremely knowledgeable on all things OCD. Incredible patience and a very warm kind person. I had complete trust in him and could tell he completely understood what I was going through. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I hope that I can become a successful physician and treat ocd the way it should be. Thank you for nocd and my therapist for giving me hope

Chris is a fantastic therapist. I never feel uncomfortable. It always amazes me that anything I tell him revolving around my theme doesn’t phase him. He always has a plan for ERP even when the triggers seem too big and scary.

Really made me feel at ease. Sensitive therapist and good human.

He is great, I was incredibly nervous with my other therapists but her does a great job keeping me at ease!

Brilliant - professional, empathic and offered hope. He just seemed to ‘get it’. Chris wasn’t phased by anything I said. He also illustrated a plan which I believe will work. It’s hard to explain. I’ve received therapy via the NHS (the UK government health body) and it’s taken the therapists ages to get me. For Chris, everything I said came across as completely normal to him. This makes a huge difference. Thank you so much.
