Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD

Laura Lamir


Licensed Therapist, MS, LCPC


As a therapist, I approach my sessions with compassion, encouragement, and scientific facts. I know it can be hard to talk about these things, especially if you've worked with other therapists who didn't understand OCD. In therapy, we will follow the science and research. I also try to have a sense of humor when possible; I find that a little of that goes a long way. Outside of work, I love to be out in nature, and I like to cook. Mexican food is one of my favorites.

Get to know Laura Lamir

I tried other career paths, but I kept coming back to helping others in a therapeutic way. Once I affirmed that choice, I never looked back. Helping others in therapy is my dream job.

I say that OCD kind of came to me. When I was in private practice, a lot of people were coming to me with those symptoms. But I didn't have the full toolkit to treat them. That's when I found NOCD, because I was looking for training.

I'm experienced with a lot of conditions. I started in family therapy, so I have a background in family systems. I've treated mood disorders, including anxiety and depression. Anxiety is my jam—it's what I like to treat. That's because it's so pervasive—it's everywhere—and it's so treatable. We use ERP for OCD, but there are effective treatments for anxiety disorders across the board.

Know that you can do this and that you can get better. I'm on your team. You are safe here.

Know that it's normal to be afraid. We have a couple of tools within NOCD that you can use to express those thoughts. If you're afraid to say the thoughts out loud, you could use the journal-entry feature of the app. You can message me and say, 'Hey, I'm nervous.' That can help me take things more slowly or go step-by-step. NOCD also has Member Advocates, so you can talk with someone who's been through this treatment before. I really encourage you to speak up and just say, 'I'm nervous about this.' We can start slow. You can wait until you know me a little bit better before giving me all the details. That's okay.

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

She is the best! Very caring, but pushes me to challenge myself.

Laura Lamir is very talented. I’m lucky to be working with her.

I’ve had OCD for my memorable life, and seen it focus on almost anything, but never found the courage to truly address it. I took a leap of faith to open up about EVERYTHING this year, and I couldn’t have asked for a better person to work with. Laura is understanding, articulate, compassionate, insightful, and great at what she does. With her I’ve conquered things I thought were impossible for me to overcome.

Laura is the best at building confidence and making you feel empowered to tackle OCD.

Laura Lamir has provided me with exceptional OCD therapy over the last few months. She communicates with kindness and empathy and creates a comfortable atmosphere that encourages me to share with her fully and honestly. Most importantly, she has provided me with the tools I need to manage my OCD long-term. Struggling with OCD related insomnia (along with other less severe obsessions), I was near rock bottom when we first met. After multiple sessions with Laura, I've now returned to a level of quality of life that I wasn't sure was possible for me. I'm eternally grateful for her help and for NOCD's ability to pair me with a therapist that was the perfect fit. Thank you, Laura!

Finding NOCD and starting sessions with my therapist Laura has changed my life for the better. I was formally diagnosed with OCD over a year ago but have probably dealt with it for 10+ years. This program really taught me how to handle this disorder in a way where I can live with it, not against it. I genuinely can’t say enough good things about both my therapist and NOCD as a whole because they gave me insight and tools into a world I never knew about and empowered me to take my life by the reins again

Laura was easy to talk to and helped me feel comfortable sharing!
