Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD
OCD therapist Darlene Friend, Licensed Therapist, MSW, LCSW, Licensed OCD Therapist

Darlene Friend

Licensed Therapist, MSW, LCSW


I employ a comprehensive and individualized approach to treating OCD disorder that integrates evidence-based therapeutic techniques, such as exposure and response prevention. I utilize compassion and collaboration to develop exercises that aid in desensitizing anxiety-provoking triggers. Outside of work, I love spending my time with my family, my two miniature dachshunds, and friends. I'm the mother of two adult children; I have one granddaughter who I absolutely adore. I enjoy outside activities, exploring new places, everything and anything fall-related, reading, walking, yoga, crafts, and scrapbooking.
