Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD
OCD therapist Amy Seager, Licensed Therapist, LISW-S, Licensed OCD Therapist

Amy Seager


Licensed Therapist, LISW-S


I look at a person with OCD as separate from their symptoms. OCD is not who you are. In fact, OCD is preventing you from being your true self. My approach is acceptance of the person first, then tackling the OCD with a nonjudgmental, caring stance. When I'm not doing therapy, I love birdwatching, gardening, knitting, crocheting, and reading anything I can get my hands on. Fun fact: You may see me wearing fingerless gloves during sessions—not as a fashion statement, but because I have Raynaud's Syndrome, which causes my digits to overreact to even slight chills and become painful. Although I usually try to match my gloves to my outfit, sometimes I have to grab whichever pair is available, so you may see some strange color combinations!

Get to know Amy Seager

Ever since I can remember, I’ve had a great deal of empathy for anyone experiencing difficulty and suffering. I was a kid who was friends with anyone, no matter what social group they were in.

I was working in community mental health when I had a client who came to me with intense anxiety and intrusive thoughts that were causing him a great deal of suffering. He had been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder. I believed there was something else going on, but I didn’t know a lot about OCD at the time. I did some research and realized that because his obsessive thoughts didn't fit the general idea of how OCD “should” present, he'd been misdiagnosed for years. After that, I saw a few more people who had been misdiagnosed, and I saw the intense suffering and shame this disorder had caused them. I knew OCD was a sneaky, deceitful gremlin that was holding people hostage and I wanted to join the fight to eradicate it.

I’ve worked a great deal with adults and children who've experienced acute episodes of trauma or accumulative trauma. I’ve used a mixture of psychoanalysis and imagery rescripting and reprocessing therapy, which is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy.

You will not be fighting this battle alone. I will be supporting you by coaching, encouraging, and cheering you on. I can’t promise it will be easy, but I have confidence that you can do it.

I will not be shocked or disgusted by the thoughts OCD pushes on you. OCD uses shame and fear to keep you silent and suffering. Quite often, just speaking the thoughts out loud takes some of their power away.

Amy has done a great job at reaching my daughter with trust issues. She’s very meticulous and doesn’t miss anything. She’s kind and compassionate not only to my daughter but supportive to me as a parent going through this with my daughter. It’s very difficult and she has been a big help

Amy is patient, thoughtful, and thorough.


Dec 06, 2023

I spent so many years confused why anti-anxiety medicine didn't help my "anxiety." Finding out what OCD is and that I have it has completely changed my life. NOCD helped me treat my OCD and gave me tools to use outside of theraoy as well!


Dec 05, 2023

Amy Seagar is an excellent therapist! She has helped greatly with my ocd. She explains erp and core fears very well. She also uses the tools available in the nocd app as a part of the therapy. She’s very understanding and modifies the therapy to your needs.

We feel very supported, but progress has been sluggish. There appears to be no target date to address ERP Which was the main goal of engaging NOCD. It's particularly difficult for us since we are paying for the sessions 100% out-of-pocket.

Amy has sincerely tried her best to support our family and has true compassion for our situation. However, I was hopeful for more progress by now.
