Nicole Connolly


Licensed Therapist, LMHC


During therapy with me, you are in the driver's seat. You decide what activities we do and the pace of our work. I facilitate the overall experience: the structure of treatment, how sessions are organized, and assign the daily homework. Outside of work, I enjoy nature, reading, and making tea.

Facing your fears can be uncomfortable. But it's like growing pains. After pushing through it,, the fear will start to decrease.

Get to know Nicole Connolly

Being a therapist is a combination of two areas that I love—learning about the mind and helping people. After seeing mental illness affect those in my life, I chose to be someone who applied their knowledge while working directly with those who are suffering.

When I was working at a mental health agency during the start of the pandemic, I saw how difficult that time was for those with OCD. I wanted to help improve quality of life for people and make a meaningful difference.

I am trained in EMDR. I also have treated anxiety, depression, body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs), and trauma. These conditions tend to be comorbid (or occur alongside) OCD, so having focused on them helps me spot them in my current work with members.

Exposure and Response Prevention involves facing your fears, which is inherently uncomfortable. But instead of being dangerous, it's like growing pains. You can expect discomfort, but after pushing through it and putting in the “exercise” out of session, the fear will start to decrease.

It’s OK to let me know! Privacy is a big value of mine, so I don't push members to share what they don't want to. At the same time, I want to help you feel safe with me so we can work on the discomfort together. The professional connection—the trust you have in your therapist—is the biggest factor in how effective therapy is, and I want to build that trust with you.

NOCD therapists are trained by our world-renowned clinical leadership team.

What our members say about
Nicole Connolly


Aug 05, 2023

I think this is the most respectful therapist i’ve ever had. She really listens to you and acknowledges what you are going through. She shows no judgment and it was really easy for me to open up just after two sessions. She makes sure that you know that ocd is something that does affect our lives and she makes you feel heard.

Felt like I was able to be heard on my issues that I have.

Nicole is very intentional with her words and listens carefully to what I say and don’t say. I’ve never met with a therapist who understands OCD the way she does and it has had a major impact even thought we’ve only had two sessions and haven’t started treatment yet. I feel confident that this is going to work.

It probably had to be done but a lot of time spent on safety etc

Nicole was great, patient, and understanding. Provided her knowledge without making me feeling judged whatsoever, I look forward to progressing and learning how to manage my OCD.

Nicole was lovely. She made sure to check everything I told her to make sure she herself understood everything I was going through
