Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD
OCD therapist Karla Charles, Licensed Therapist, MS, LPC, Licensed OCD Therapist

Karla Charles


Licensed Therapist, MS, LPC


I understand that OCD isn't limited to intrusive thoughts or behaviors. It can also affect various aspects of your daily life. By taking a holistic approach—considering your relationships, work, and overall well-being—I tailor a treatment plan to address your specific needs. Outside of work, I love spending quality time with my family and loved ones. Dancing and being active also bring me joy. I also have a passion for growing plants inside my home. It's a therapeutic and fulfilling hobby that brings a touch of nature indoors.

Today Karla explained something I've struggled mightily with for the past 10 years. I feel like she gave me a priceless gift. I'm continually amazed by her insights and helpfulness. She is by far the best therapist I've ever had (and I've seen 4 others in my adult lifetime). The NOCD community and I are extremely lucky to have her.

More than any Therapist ever has, Karla helped me to cut through the fog and clear the path ahead. These two months have given me a completely different framework through which to view my patterns. I’m incredibly grateful that I was able to access such an excellent quality level of therapeutic process and therapist. the intro offer was such a fantastic opportunity for me as I wouldn’t have been able to go on this journey otherwise. Thank you Karla and NOCD. This experience has changed my life
