I describe my approach to treating OCD as holistic. It includes mindfulness and paying attention to what your body is feeling. I teach members to practice acceptance of their responses and behaviors, knowing they'll learn they have choices. Some fun facts about me: I am married with six amazing daughters, two granddaughters, and a fur baby named Nala. I love writing poetry and traveling. I have been to Mexico, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua, London, France, Italy, Greece, and Canada, and I'm looking for more places to put on my bucket list.

Healing from OCD is possible. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and it's OK if you sometimes need someone else to hold the lamp.

even through she has a large case load right now, she made me feel like I’ll be in good, caring hands.

ERP is scary at first but after just my second session of exposures I am starting to see that this method really can change your brain. It’s hard to face your fears but Sharlisa is very reassuring and does not pressure you to do something you are way too scared to try. She eases you into the exposures until you build some confidence that you can take on more. I was absolutely terrified at first before we started that I would have to interact in a new way with my deep-seated, obsessive fear thoughts, but I am now seeing that I can do this and am feeling optimistic about how this work may be able to help me profoundly.

My daughter was diagnosed with severe OCD, but she talked to the therapist she is okay because she didn't want any treatment. I talked to the therapist about the truth, but she won't buy my words and she said she can't help us. I know low motivation is hard to fix OCD, but I believe the therapist should listen to me and help her to treat her OCD. My family is ruined and suffered a lot from her OCD and NOCD was my last hope and I ruined.
