Dori Ertler


Licensed Therapist, MA, LPC


The fact that I have experienced some of the effects of OCD makes me sympathetic to those who are suffering from it. We all have so many different experiences, but at the heart is a longing to belong, to fit in, and to enjoy our lives with those we love. Remembering that is key for me in treating people with and without OCD. When I'm not doing therapy, I love to read—anywhere, anyplace. I also enjoy traveling; I'm putting together a bucket list for my husband and me to work through once we semi-retire.

Get to know Dori Ertler

I used to be a teacher. I became frustrated with the inability to help my students with their mental health. In many cases, it was having a negative impact on their education.

I have suffered from some symptoms of OCD myself. I never had any help with them. Since learning about NOCD, I've had conversations with people I know who've told me they've also suffered. To be able to help others is extremely satisfying to me.

I often work with women, particularly mothers who are struggling to keep it all together. I tend to utilize DBT and ACT modalities within my therapy sessions. I believe that what we're drawn to has much to do with our identity and experiences. I'd like to help people like me, who've struggled with the same things I've struggled with and have learned to overcome.

I will take this journey with you. I'll be here to help you with your struggles and celebrate your wins. You are more than your symptoms suggest. You can be strong and successful.

Please remember that I'm not here to judge you. I'm here to walk this journey with you. I can do that best if we have an honest, open relationship built on trust. I will do my best to earn your trust. I just ask that you trust me.
