Michele Anuszkiewicz


Licensed Therapist, LCSW, CASAC


Although anyone diagnosed with OCD has met certain defined criteria, no two members are the same. Taking the time to really listen to what's causing each person's distress is essential to creating a treatment plan customized to the individual. My goal is for you to make the decisions that control your life, not your OCD. A fun fact about me: My travel goal is to visit all the islands in the Beach Boys song 'Kokomo'.

Get to know Michele Anuszkiewicz

I have always been someone others confide in and seek advice from. I like helping people, so becoming a therapist was a natural fit.

I've worked in the field for 20 years, in a variety of settings, with a variety of populations. Being able to effectively treat such a prevaIent and debilitating disorder in a short amount of time was very enticing prospect.

I have extensive experience working with anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, substance abuse, and borderline personality disorder.

Sharing your most distressing thoughts and fears is hard. Facing your fears is hard. Feeling like OCD is taking over your life and not knowing how to stop it is harder. Taking that first step to get help is worth it. I can't wait to meet you.

Go at your own pace. If there are things you don't want to share, you don't have to. Once we get to know each other and build trust, you might become more comfortable sharing scary thoughts. There might be some things that you never want to share, and that's totally your choice. The cool thing about our work together is that you get to set your limits and boundaries. It's not uncommon for a member to say they're nervous about sharing things that are distressing to them. I do my best to reassure them that after 20 years in the field, there isn't much that I haven't heard, I don't think it's possible to offend, shock, or gross me out anymore.

What our members say about
Michele Anuszkiewicz

Michele Anuszkiesicz at NOCD has been helping me immensely for over three months now and I continue to look forward each session, as I continually notice results and growth and feel very respected and supported. I highly recommend her. I came to Michele looking for help with what I suspected was hoarding and/or OCD. I wanted help: 1) getting rid of stuff that I had trouble letting go of, 2) stopping collecting in the first place, 3) stop excessively reviewing my work, 4) stop getting mired in decision making with perfectionism. Michele has helped me every session immensely in all these areas and more that I probably forgot and we've agreed on useful homework that feels doable, our "experiments" to see how I can try on my own. I have felt very safe to go through the whole process with her because of her nonjudgmental, respectful communication, and the way she has encouraged me gently to take on challenges. It is evident that she has had a lot of experience in this area, which feels incredibly valuable when we address the challenges I face and the thoughts and feelings I have. She has discussed setbacks with gentle nonjudgmental encouragement and celebrated my getting through challenges, in what feels very kind and genuine. Her questions and ideas have been presented gently and I always feel that I am treated as an independent person, with great respect for the power to ultimately be mine to make decisions. I hope this review has been helpful and wish anyone reading good luck on your journey!

I have been pulling my hair for at least 25 years. I’ve been working with Michele for 2 months and I went 10 days pull free already. She has been so helpful in figuring out the root of the problem and exploring different ideas that would work for me.
