Melissa Wright


Licensed Therapist, LMFT


As an OCD therapist, I have a non-judgemental and compassionate, yet direct approach. I'm here to be your guide through beating OCD. ERP isn't easy, but it works and it's worth it. I keep it real but I like to make things enjoyable. I have been licensed as a Marriage & Family Therapist in California since 2013. In addition to being an OCD Specialist, I treat postpartum anxiety/mood disorders, trauma (EMDR), and addiction.

This is hard work, but it's nothing you can't handle. OCD is harder on you than recovery from OCD will be.

Get to know Melissa Wright

I come from a family of therapists; I was born into this. Additionally, I experienced a variety of mental health struggles in my early 20s. My recovery motivated me to pursue a career helping others.

As a licensed therapist, I was never taught how to treat OCD in school or in other workplace training. I had a real deficit in helping people who struggled with OCD. When I learned there was an evidence-based approach with proven results, I wanted to learn more.

I specialize in maternal mental health, and I'm trained in EMDR. Getting specialized in OCD treatment was, for me, a big piece of the puzzle that was missing for many of my clients. Additionally, I've treated chemical dependency, eating disorders, and severe mental illness as a therapist and in leadership positions. These are all near and dear to my heart. I struggled with postpartum anxiety, with panic attacks. I didn't feel there was enough support for me. So I made it my mission to fill that gap in care for others.

This is hard work, but it's nothing you can't handle. OCD is harder on you than recovery from OCD will be. A life that isn't controlled by OCD is worth all the hard work.

Tell me anyway. I'm here for you! It's likely that your OCD is telling you not to tell me something, but we can't let it win. You and I are on the same team.
