Cindy Garcia-Noonis


Licensed Therapist, LMFT


In ERP, one of the most effective forms of treatment for OCD, we'll work together to identify your specific triggers, obsessive thoughts and behaviors, then I'll guide you through techniques to face your fears gradually. I'll work with you to develop skills to tolerate distress and uncertainty without attempting to get rid of anxiety through compulsions. When I'm not working, my favorite hobby is traveling. I love experiencing new cultures, learning about people, eating new foods and taking photos.

You are incredibly brave for wanting to face your fears. The rewards for your hard work are on the other side of the fear.

Get to know Cindy Garcia-Noonis

I've always had a natural affinity for being of service to people. I was the person that people would talk to when they were in need of a friendly ear. I started my career advocating for abused and neglected children in court. I decided I could be more helpful if I were trained in trauma treatment as a therapist, so I went to graduate school and pursued a career in therapy.

I have worked to overcome my own intrusive thoughts related to driving in the rain. I have a great deal of compassion for people who are experiencing OCD symptoms. I know firsthand how it feels to face your greatest fears and master thoughts and behaviors that release you from the prison of your mind. You can live in freedom again.

I've been in private practice since 2011, and I've specialized in infant parent mental health and trauma treatment using EMDR. I love to witness people evolve and become the version of themselves that they'd like to be. I employ a holistic mind-body-spirit approach, integrating my clinical skills to assist people in the process of personal transformation.

I'm here to guide you in a nonjudgmental, safe, and confidential space where you can share all your concerns related to OCD. You are supported on this journey. ERP is an effective therapy in treating OCD. You are incredibly brave for wanting to face your fears; the rewards for your hard work are on the other side of the fear.

I provide a confidential, safe, nonjudgmental space for you to share. Sometimes it's difficult to share thoughts we may feel ashamed of. Please know that you're being held in the highest positive regard. As a therapist, I know that you are not your thoughts or your behaviors. I am able to best help you when you're willing to share what's causing you the most distress. We will walk this journey together—you can do this!

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

Cindy Garcia-Noonis is very good at helping me to crack my OCD and stop it from taking over my life. She has provided me with resources to learn more online outside of session that have really helped me, too. She is respectful, encouraging, and empathetic, and also helps me to do the exposures that I need to do. I am very grateful for having this therapy with Cindy.

I feel that Cindy is helping me to make progress. The ERP in session has helped me to have the confidence to work on exposures outside of session, too. She is very positive and patient and has good ideas about how to get past OCD.

My therapist has been fantastic. I’m 6 weeks into this program and I feel like I’m getting my life back after 5 years of suffering from OCD, something I thought might never happen.
