Wendy Durant

Licensed Therapist, MED, LPC


My therapeutic approach involves using ERP, an evidenced-based treatment approach to create a supportive, nonjudgmental, collaborative, didactic, therapeutic space to treat OCD. In addition to being a therapist supporting clients with OCD, I’m a wife, boy mom, and dog mom (I have three dogs: two toy poodles and a cocker spaniel). I love to travel and experience new cultures and places, spend time with my family and friends, and read. I am actively involved with my sorority and volunteer as a crisis counselor with LBGT+ youth.

Get to know Wendy Durant

I’ve always had a passion for being a helper and support to others. I began my career in education, where I learned my students could be more successful academically if they had the tools to manage their emotions and the challenges life tosses their way. I enrolled in a counseling program to learn how to help my students. That began a complete immersion into the field of counseling and supporting others as a professional helper and psychotherapist.

Our brain is one of the most powerful organs in our body, and it speaks to us regularly. For some, our thoughts—and behavioral responses to cope with those thoughts—can be overwhelming and control our lives in an unhealthy and unfulfilling way. As part of my own personal journey, I’ve learned helpful strategies to gain greater control of disparaging thoughts and/or behaviors. When I learned how to cope better for myself, I wanted to share these life-changing tools with others. So I began a quest to add OCD treatment (ERP) as a specialization in my therapeutic toolkit.

In addition to specializing in supporting members with OCD treatment, I hold advanced degrees and certifications in the following areas: Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine · Certified Sex Offender Treatment Provider · Certified Sex Therapist · LGBTQIA+ Ally & Certified Professional · Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Certified Professional · Certified Teacher & Guidance Counselor (Louisiana only) · Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor · Certified Trauma Professional · Preschool Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Certified Professional · Youth Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Certified Professional · Registered Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy Professional · Registered Child-Parent Psychotherapy Professional

NOCD is an excellent platform with highly qualified clinicians trained to use evidence-based treatments to treat OCD. Trust the process. Through your efforts and the professional support provided by your therapist, you'll gain helpful tools to feel better and live healthier.

Please know that you're not alone. Know that your therapist is here to help. The therapeutic space is safe, non-judgemental, and confidential. I will work to earn your trust by building rapport, being transparent, and creating time and space for us to get to know one another. As you embark on this journey, it's important that you're open and honest so you can get the best support possible.

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

What our members say about
Wendy Durant


May 01, 2024

Wendy is an outstanding therapist. She takes the time to listen thoroughly to my concerns, and she asks just the right questions to get to the root of the issue. She is kind, warm, and welcoming. Initially, I was hesitant to seek therapy for OCD. I struggled with sharing my thoughts with anyone for fear of being stigmatized or misunderstood. I could barely wrestle with these thoughts myself, let alone attempt to communicate my internal experience to other people. However, after my first few sessions with Wendy, I quickly came to realize that I truly was not alone in my struggles. She helped me to understand the biological factors at play in OCD, as well as the psychological/emotional processes at work too. Because of her kindness and professionalism, I knew that she was someone I could trust to help me work through this gritty healing process. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work with such an experienced and talented mental health professional!
