Kristin Far


Licensed Therapist, LCSW


I take a jump-right-in approach to treating OCD, because I want to help members get back to living their lives as soon as possible. You have the ability to make changes. Once you understand the game OCD plays, you can run your own therapy sessions. Outside of work, I enjoy creative projects that incorporate sewing, crafts, and upcycling old things around the house. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends by checking out new local restaurants.

Get to know Kristin Far

Growing up, my friends always came to me with their challenges and personal issues. Listening to and validating others were things that I really valued. When I saw that I could help people help themselves, I knew therapy was my calling. I started out wanting to work with children and quickly expanded to all age groups.

People in my life have suffered with OCD. I saw how debilitating it can be. When I learned that traditional talk therapy actually makes OCD worse, I was eager to know more about ERP and how to be a better therapist to my OCD clients.

Aside from OCD, I also focus on depression, anxiety, ADHD, suicidality and self-injury, and trauma. These areas interest me because I have friends and family who have struggled with these conditions. I want to make a difference and spread awareness.

Every therapist at NOCD goes through intensive training during their onboarding process, no matter their OCD background and experience. We take pride in that. When we have therapists who are confident in their training and skills, we can help members effectively.

It's understandable that you might be afraid to share your thoughts. As an OCD specialist, I have heard, learned, and worked with many different subtypes. Most likely, yours will not be surprising to me. Whatever intrusive thoughts you may have, they will always be met with empathy, compassion and understanding. I want to help you get better and get your life back!

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

Kristin Far

Kristin has been incredibly patient with me through the treatment process. She has given me concrete techniques to use in session and then implement when I'm practicing on my own. Her unflagging support has helped me so much to stay committed to this process and start to regain control of my life and my future. I feel heard, supported, and cared about by Kristin more than any other therapist I've ever worked with over years of treatment attempts. She is incredible!!!

Kristin F. helps us trust the process. She’s the one to shine a light when we feel nothing but darkness. It is sooo important to have someone you trust while you’re waiting for things to transpire. Sometimes significant changes don’t always come on your timeline. But what you do while you’re waiting counts too.

I read a quote that said “Never give up on someone with a mental illness. When “I” is replaced by “We”, illness becomes wellness.” written by Shannon L. Alder. Kristen F. has and continues to help us be on a road to a healthier life.

Kristin is an amazing therapist, I would recommend her 100%. 5 stars review isn’t enough. She is kind, smart and patient. She always ask the right question and tried to come up with new ideas to help me overcome OCD. She helped me lower my OCD to 97% in less then 6 months after suffering from it for 20 years. Exposure therapy has worked very well for me. Thank you Kristin for everything you did. Your work has made my life so much better. Forever grateful for you !

Kristin F.  Continues to give my child  the confidence he needs to take extra steps to fight his compulsions.


Sep 06, 2023

Coming from another in-person program I had mixed feelings about NOCD at first, but Kristin F. made  it clear from the gate how this process was going to be different. Her tone, passion and commitment came across clearly. I'm grateful to have my child in good hands. I can say with confidence what she said she did. We are blessed to have her as our therapist. Kristin F. is a Rockstar!!!!

We're fortunate to have Kristin F. as our guide on the road  to better understanding ocd and each other. Today she helped us see that with a great exercise. She is an extraordinarily excellent  therapist.

Each week I'm thankful to have Kristin F. in our lives. The confidence  she helps us keep hope and optimism alive.

Therapist was great. Made my son feel at ease and comfortable to open up. The only upsetting thing is that she does not have after school availability to continue seeing him. I do not want my son to see a different therapist after sharing everything with the one we saw today. We started establishing a relationship and it does not make sense to me to start with someone new, yet again.


Aug 17, 2023

Kristen F. as always is understanding and flexible. She's always willing to meet my child where he is. She is also able to read his abilities. To be pushed a little further when necessary. That's a valuable skill I find In a therapist.
