About

My approach to treating OCD is collaborative and affirming, with the goal of empowering people to navigate the complexities of OCD through the use of exposure response prevention, or ERP. I will meet you where you are and work with you to develop the best course for you. Outside of work, reading by a campfire is my favorite thing to do, but I'm also very involved in martial arts for a little more action!

Get to know Amanda Forsythe

I was inspired to become a therapist by having a positive experience as a client. I found the process so beneficial that it sparked a desire to help others in the way I had been helped. I recall thinking, “More people deserve to feel like this.” So it became my passion to help others experience that kind of personal growth and become the best version of themselves.

It just made sense for me to specialize in OCD because of my own lived experience. Why not work with what I know? As a result, I can practice through the lens of someone who gets it. I'm familiar with how debilitating OCD can be, which further ignites my compassion and motivation to help others shed the suffocating hold this condition can have.

In addition to OCD, I specialize in providing compassionate and effective therapy for individuals dealing with mood disorders. My practice is grounded in a deep understanding of the unique challenges associated with mood-related concerns, and I'm dedicated to creating a supportive and non-judgmental space for people to explore their experiences. Aside from my expertise in mood disorders, I am particularly passionate about working with the LGBTQIA+ community. I am committed to fostering an inclusive environment that acknowledges and respects the diverse experiences of individuals within this community.

Your experience is probably more common than you think! Although OCD can look different for everyone, you are not alone in your experience. It will be challenging to get to the other side, but you will have a variety of resources available to you, along with opportunities to develop your own sense of community.

I want to assure you that this is a safe and non-judgmental space. My goal is to support you, and there's no pressure to share more than you're ready for. It's completely normal to feel nervous about opening up, especially when we're just getting to know each other. You're always welcome to let me know if we need to slow down or take smaller steps, and we can move at a pace that's more comfortable for you.
