Afua Agyeman

Licensed Therapist, MA, LPC


In treating OCD, I use evidence-based exposure response prevention to help people achieve real progress and measurable affective change. I enjoy seeing members find a sense of control over their minds and lives. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love taking my chihuahua out for long walks, cooking, trying new restaurants and cuddling up in bed to watch documentaries.

Get to know Afua Agyeman

I've always been curious about the mind, development, and individual experiences. My desire to become a therapist came from seeing how childhood influences adult life. Anytime I found myself witnessing a troubled individual, I never questioned their motive, but asked, 'What were the implications of their childhood and experiences?'

I decided to specialize in OCD because of personal experience with friends and loved ones. Growing up, I suffered from undiagnosed anxiety. For a time, I had intrusive thoughts that I had to overcome myself because there was a lack of awareness from my parents and community. That influenced me to enter this specialization. I want to fill the cultural barrier others may face when seeking OCD diagnosis and treatment.

Mood disorders, anxiety, and trauma. I've worked in urban and marginalized communities where these diagnoses are common. That gave me the opportunity to gain expertise and enjoyment in treating those issues.

We are not here just to take up space. At NOCD, we're here to provide real help and change, using evidence-based techniques that will improve your life and allow you to find the relief you may desperately be seeking.

If you're afraid to share your thoughts with me, just remember that you're not expected to jump right into a state of comfort at the first session. Like any relationship, it takes time. Together, we'll build a rapport and comfort level. I offer a safe and non-judgmental space for all.

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