Jennifer Woodruff

Licensed Therapist, MSSW, LCSW, LICSW


I recognize that not every person is the same; we all have unique situations and struggles that brought us to where we are today. I aim to empower people with the tools they need to move beyond the place where they're stuck. Outside of work, I love to read, garden, travel, and spend time with family. I love cats; I've been told I’m fast on my way to becoming 'that cat lady.'

Get to know Jennifer Woodruff

I became a therapist because I wanted to help people. I’ve dealt with some mental health issues myself since childhood, and I enjoy helping people realize that with treatment and support it’s possible to move forward in life. The part of my job I find most gratifying is when people see progress in an area that previously felt hopeless or impossible.

I decided to specialize in OCD after encountering numerous clients with this disorder, which is often misdiagnosed as generalized anxiety disorder. I found myself getting frustrated because I didn't know how to best help people overcome their distress. When I became aware of a specialized training program for OCD, I knew that was where I needed to be.

My other areas of focus are depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, and work/career issues. My experience at a community mental health center showed me that no matter what is going on in someone’s life, anxiety and depression are common to most everyone at some time or other.

It’s OK to feel anxious about trying something new. To achieve something different than what you’ve always had, it begins with doing something different than you’ve always done! You might feel embarrassed, ashamed, or like your situation is unique. I understand that reaching out for help may feel scary. I aim to help people feel comfortable when sharing and give them a sense of hope that achieving some relief is not only possible but entirely realistic.

Feeling afraid to share is normal and not unusual, given the often-sensitive nature of personal thoughts. It’s ok to express this feeling. We’ll work together at a pace that feels comfortable for you.

I am encouraged and treated with kindness and understanding. It’s so easy to feel alienated with OCD, so I am grateful to have this safe place with Jennifer!

This is a great experience. I'm learning a lot about the details of my OCD and I'm better able to put words around why I want my world clean. :)

I just wanted to say no matter what the fact there are people out there like Jennifer and are willing to help people with their life problems is something I can’t put in to words. Thank you to NOCD and all of their employees because without you guys we have nothing.
