In therapy, I try to create the safest place possible, one that is judgment-free. You have been your own worst judge and jury for way too long. I create a space where you can stop feeling like you have to be perfect and serve others at the expense of your own happiness. Outside of work, I wanted to travel to all 50 states before I turned 50, and I did it. I have been doing needle arts since I was very little, and I don't believe there is a tool for sewing, yarn work, or beading that I don't own.

In OCD therapy, you will learn how to get comfortable with uncertainty—a wild concept for so many people! It is hard work that will pay off.

What our members say about
Edith Gardner


Jul 17, 2023

Working with NOCD has been wonderful from the very start. Signing up, getting my insurance verified, and scheduling my first appointment was a simple and quick process. I am really grateful that NOCD takes my insurance so that I could get the specialized OCD treatment that I have been seeking for years at a cost I can afford. My therapist, Edie (Edith G.), has been a great fit for my personality, goals, and needs. After years and years of therapy with numerous therapists, I can confidently say she is not judgmental or preachy towards me, something I have experienced a lot with other therapists. I feel as if we are truly working together as she constantly invites me to explore my thoughts, feelings, reactions, past, and present and allows me to voice my victories, defeats, and concerns. I am also deeply impressed by her compassion and cultural sensitivity and competence. Thank you so much, Edie! For the first time in my experiences with therapy, I feel like I am being treated with dignity and respect. I couldn't recommend NOCD and Edie enough!!
