Darla Nave

Licensed Therapist, LMFT


My approach to OCD therapy is to gather information and help create a road map for treatment. I'm here to coach you along the way. I'll help you gain and realize your strengths and ability to overcome difficult challenges. A fun fact about me: I’m a Valentine baby! Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, drawing, and painting.

Get to know Darla Nave

I have a passion for helping people through their emotional challenges and guiding hem toward hope and a stronger sense of self. I believe in building healthy coping skills with a focus on self-acceptance and self-compassion. Many things surface in life can cause anxiety, depression, or just confusion. This can impact our outlook and how we relate to others.

I'm excited about NOCD's treatment for OCD. It is called exposure and response prevention (ERP). It is the gold-standard treatment for OCD—more effective than general talk therapy or other forms of treatment.

Depression and anxiety. I have a passion and desire to help people develop coping skills to soothe their pain.

ERP does take effort. It’s hard, uncomfortable, and the opposite of what most people with OCD are used to doing, which is avoiding discomfort. And it doesn’t fix things overnight. However, I'm here to help you take on this challenge with all of your fears, challenges, and unknowns.

You can take your time before opening up. If this persists, we can explore the possibility of scheduling with another therapist in the hope of having more of a rapport or connection.

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