Marisa Cherry

Licensed Therapist, MSW, LCSW


My approach as a therapist is empathic and kind. I believe good rapport between therapist and member is a wonderful contributing factor to positive outcomes in treatment. In my free time, you can find me rollerblading at the beach, painting with acrylics, or driving with the windows down and listening to good music. I love animals and have a dog named Max.

Get to know Marisa Cherry

At different points in my life, helping professionals have supported me in getting through incredibly difficult experiences. When considering career paths, I wanted to choose something meaningful. I’m so glad I chose to become a therapist. The work I do with others brings purpose and meaning to my life. It has been rewarding to see people return to school or employment, tend to important relationships, and pursue fulfilling lives through the recovery process.

Many therapists are available to help people address various challenges these days. When I learned people with OCD are underserved in therapy, I knew I wanted to help increase support and awareness.

Other areas I've focused on in my career include substance use disorders, anxiety, and depression in adolescents and adults. Seeing people’s lives change through the recovery process is incredibly rewarding.

If you’re thinking about getting support, I’m so glad you’ve found NOCD. I’m here to walk alongside you on the road to recovery.

Sharing our unwanted thoughts with others can be intimidating. Therapy space is meant to be supportive, and I hope to support you through your fears and assist you in moving toward recovery.
