Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD
OCD therapist Jessica McGraw, Licensed Therapist, MS, LMHC, Licensed OCD Therapist

Jessica McGraw


Licensed Therapist, MS, LMHC


My approach in treating OCD is collaborative. I want to work alongside the member setting realistic, yet challenging goals that will empower them to confront their OCD while decreasing the anxiety experienced in distressing situations. I will never force the member to do anything they're uncomfortable doing. Outside of work, I enjoy going on walks with my family, watching the sunrise over the ocean, and a more recent hobby is gardening.

You are not your OCD. You are a person who has OCD, and you are not defined by your thoughts.

Get to know Jessica McGraw

I became a therapist because I've always been told that I'm trustworthy, nonjudgmental, and easy to talk to. It's my passion, as well as a calling, to help people navigate difficult issues in their lives.

I want to help individuals have freedom from the false imprisonment OCD creates. This will improve relationships with family and friends and allow the individual to return to a life undefined by their OCD.

My other areas of focus include anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and family dynamics. I chose to focus on those other areas because of a personal connection to mental illness and strong desire to help people work through their issues, ultimately empowering them to become their own therapist.

It will seem hard in the beginning, but remember that life with OCD is harder. At first, it may seem as though your OCD is getting 'worse', but you're actually learning to tolerate distress and anxiety without using compulsions.

Know that you are not your OCD. You are a person who has OCD, and you are not defined by your thoughts. In our sessions, I will create a nonjudgmental environment where you'll be able to share uncomfortable experiences and intrusive thoughts in a safe space.

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

What our members say about
Jessica McGraw


Mar 12, 2024

2.5 months of sessions and I am so much more in control of my OCD. I recently experienced series of unfortunate events which showed me how significantly improved my coping skills have become. I'm proud of myself and thankful for the support system NOCD has given me. I've learned new tools and have actively shared my progress with others in my life that struggle to cope with their own mental health issues. For those of you struggling right now, don't give up. It really does get easier, exposure therapy has helped me get through hurdles I've been avoiding for the last few years. Now I'm focusing on being present in the moment and content. It's been amazing. Please share your thoughts or struggles... that's what we are all here for.

I had no idea how invasive my OCD was, my normal is far from normal.

My therapist is such a kind compassionate person and very patient. You can tell she really cares even if it's someone else that I end up doing therapy with you can really tell she just sincerely wants to help people, so glad that there are people like her in this world!
