Andrew Barber

Licensed Therapist, MA, LMFT


My approach to treating OCD is very non-judgmental and gentle. I am here as a guide to help you figure out what works best for you. Your treatment is a collaborative effort for both of us. Outside of work, I enjoy playing and creating music as well as hiking, hunting, and reading. I love the mountains and would pick them over the beach any day!

Having loved ones who have suffered with OCD, it's an area of therapy that holds a special place in my heart.

Get to know Andrew Barber

I wanted to become a therapist so I could help those who are hurting from various conditions and situations.

I decided to specialize in OCD because it's an area of therapy that holds a special place in my heart. Having loved ones who have suffered with OCD, I've seen how disruptive it can truly be.

I specialize in adultery recovery with couples and EFT (emotionally focused therapy). I started my counseling career out by specializing in those areas because I saw treatment put into practice by my supervisors and it was very effective, something I wanted to be a part of.

Please know that before starting NOCD Therapy you have already taken a crucial and brave step in seeking out help. I know therapy can seem scary, but I would never ask you to do anything that I myself am not willing to do.

Sometimes our most private thoughts are difficult to share with others. That’s why building rapport with you is one of my top priorities. In time, telling me those most private thoughts will become easier.

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

John is supportive and there when I need him.

John helps me to put things into perspective and to understand it's a marathon not a sprint.

We are so grateful for John Barber, who does such an excellent job of meeting our son where he is, and helping him move forward in ways that feel challenging, but not to the point of shut down/overwhelm. Our son is making progress and we are very grateful.

My therapist has given me the tools I need, the instructions. It's up to me to do the homework.

After having an extremely difficult day with my OCD I scheduled a last minute session, could not thank him enough, what a wonderful therapist with wonderful advice on coping strategies for OCD!


Oct 19, 2023

Another good session. Again, he said, "What's a new exposure we can come up with for you?" Ugh... but I appreciate it. As hard as it is, it's what I need.

Great session.


Sep 26, 2023

Very good session. A difficult one to do, but still good. I said, You're going to give me that as ERP aren't you?" And he just laughed. He enjoys his job a little too much! Lol. Great therapist!


Sep 19, 2023

Great session. He gave me new ERP to do. He challenges me to keep going though it's scary and hard.

Very good session!

John is a great therapist. He gives me the homework to do. But faith and family are very important to me. He will talk with me about those areas of my life. He even talked to my husband to help him understand what's going on with me.

John is a great therapist. He gives me the homework to do. But my faith and family are important to me so he will talk to me about those areas of my life as well. He even talked to my husband to help him understand more of what's going on with me.


Aug 21, 2023

I am hopeful. Seeing some progress. John is a wonderful, caring therapist.

Very good session. More ERP homework.

Great session.

I was not in my son's session, but John (his therapist) deserves some major praise. We tried a different therapy and ERP before with 2 other therapists and the biggest issue we had was my son did not feel he has a voice in his treatment. Getting him to even try therapy for OCD was a battle in itself, but then getting someone to not push him too fast, too soon was another hurdle we encountered. John has been a major answer to our prayers. He challenges my son with his exposures but does it at a pace that my son feels like he can try. My son has REALLY appreciated that. My son might not be ready to fully recognize that therapy is helping him, but as his loved ones, we CAN absolutely see it and we are so thankful. He still has a ways to go, but we are very pleased with the great work he's already done and we know that John has played a big role in that progress.
