Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD

Melissa Deters


Licensed Therapist, MA, LPCC


Everything we do together will be collaborative, but I will also be providing tough love. I want the best for you, and all our goals will be made together. However, sometimes I'm going to be the villain in your story, and I'm OK with that if it helps you become a better version of yourself. In the end, I'm that older sibling who taught you that life isn't all rainbows and butterflies all the time, providing you with a sense of humor and ways to confront anxiety without compulsions. Outside of work, I enjoy all things Cincinnati sports. One of my favorite activities is playing in a softball recreation league. I also enjoy yoga and going on walks as a meditative practice.

I think of a quote I heard once: 'No one promised life would be easy. They just promised it would be worth it.' OCD therapy may be something that seems scary, but in the end, it is so worth it.
