Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD
OCD therapist Sandra Stubbs, Licensed Therapist, LPC, Ph.D, Licensed OCD Therapist

Sandra Stubbs


Licensed Therapist, LPC, Ph.D


I take an integrative approach to treating OCD. I like to get to know people through conversation. I'm a doctor of psychology, so members will learn quite a bit of information regarding their mental well-being during our interactions. As a therapist, I understand the importance of self-care. When I'm not working, I like to take long walks, play the piano, sing, and converse with others.

You can do this! OCD therapy is a partnership. As you show up to learn and implement skills, you will have full support and direction along your journey.

Get to know Sandra Stubbs

I served as an assistant pastor for several years, addressing community concerns related to immigration and navigating other challenging services. While doing this type of work, I realized families needed more specialized care. This sent me in search of further education related to trauma and crisis.

While I was managing a busy private practice, I noticed the OCD population was growing and needed support. Seeking this specialization allowed me to help more people who suffer from intrusive thoughts and related disorders.

Trauma, spiritual integration, and anxiety disorders. The part of my job that I find most gratifying is seeing members recover and regain aspects of their life. My background, experiences, and education assist me in being an empathetic clinician who is in touch with the daily challenges of mental stressors and physical illness.

First and most importantly, you can do this! This treatment will be a partnership. As you show up to learn and implement skills, you will have full support and direction along your journey.

Fear of disclosing personal challenges is normal. You can share as much or as little as you would like to share in your sessions.

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

Sandra Stubbs

My therapist with NOCD is incredible. She is always willing to listen and adjust our therapy to meet the day’s needs. Dealing with OCD among other mental health issues would be much harder without her.


Feb 21, 2024

Sandra is such a knowledgeable, supportive, and kind therapist. She has already helped me so much. ERP is absolutely life changing. I tried to white knuckle my way through my obsessions and compulsions for so long, but now I feel like I'm actually making real and sustainable progress. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to learn how to manage my OCD so I can live the life that I want to.


Oct 24, 2023

Sandra is so patient and compassionate! I feel comfortable sharing even my most “embarrassing” obsessions and fears with her. Thank you for celebrating my wins and helping me through my challenges, Sandra!


Oct 11, 2023

I liked the fact that she listened to me and that she realizes I've had alot of grief and trauma and felt that maybe we should approach that first.


Sep 19, 2023

Had my first proper ERP session today, Sandra was very calm and gave perfect information to let me know how to sit with the uncertainty and not react, this is just the first step, can’t wait, long road ahead!!🙏🤩


Sep 15, 2023

I was having an especially hard day today and Sandra was so helpful in calming me down and motivating me. There are some days where my whole day feels like ERP and it exhausts me. She has a way of putting my OCD into perspective and inspires me to go on. I can’t thank you enough Sandra.


Sep 01, 2023

I felt heard and understood. Sandra used examples to help me better relate to and recollect some of my experiences. I was also okay to be vulnerable and didn't fear being judged. I'm absolutely hopeful about the therapy helping me and am looking forward to future sessions. Thanks so much for the session and the opportunity to speak and express myself.


Aug 31, 2023

She has lots of ideas on how I can accept uncertainty!

She did really well & was very helpful as well as knowledgeable. I gave her 4 stars just because I don’t know her that well yet & we just went over initial stuff


Jul 24, 2023

Sandra is an incredible blessing and made me feel very safe. Thank you!


Jul 21, 2023

It took me a long time to understand what was going through my mind. Obsessive Thoughts consumed my mind for about a year. I thought there was no way out of what was happening to me. I finally found NOCD. Sandra (my therapist) changed my life. After months of therapy. I finally understood what was going on with me. Sandra gave me the tools and amazing support along the way to help me understand my OCD. I will be forever grateful for this lifechanging therapy and support I received. If you are still reading this, please know that no matter how dark it gets, there is always light on the other side.

My new therapist is wonderful. She asked all the right questions, and truly listened to me.


Jul 14, 2023

Sandra is legit the best! She is helping me so much!!!


Jul 14, 2023

I love my therapist already! First session and I am hooked, lol, so excited for our upcoming sessions. She is like a real life angel, lol. She listens very well, is very knowledgeable, and I have already learned a lot about OCD and how we are going to approach managing it. She is very insightful and I love how she puts things. I appreciate her humor as well. I felt as if I was just talking to an old friend, a very knowledgeable & helpful one, and I loved that! I also love that she is super focused in specifically OCD. I enjoyed the session and felt great afterward also. I definitely look forward to the sessions that I will have with her. She has given me hope with my OCD, and I am very hopeful, and confident, that this will be something that I can happily manage through the guidance of her. I especially love that she is also Christian and that we can work together with God through my treatment, and hopefully overcome, or at least manage, my OCD. Super grateful for her already and eager for more sessions with Sandra! I am so happy I reached out to NOCD and found her.

Very welcoming. I felt comfortable sharing with Sandra, and she seems like she'll be great to work with.


Mar 02, 2023

This is a question I asked before going this route but it was never answered? Could we continue with NOCD even if we ended up not being diagnosed with oCd but just anxiety? It’s been exhausting trying to find CBT/exposure therapy that is needed to address my son’s anxiety. I was disappointed that after getting my son to this appointment we were pretty much turned away from receiving help from NOCD.


Jan 20, 2023

Sandra is patient and insightful. She really listens and is able to help me. Even when I fall back into the OCD she is there to remind me and teach me so I have the tools to get better.


Nov 10, 2022

Sandra is open, patient and kind. She’s really helping me and giving me the tools I can use on my own too.


Nov 02, 2022

The amount of knowledge and support Sandra brings to our sessions is beyond helpful and appreciated. Today I am feeling very determined to fight ocd and to live a life WITHOUT it less and less. I could say some many things of how amazing Sandra is!!


Oct 18, 2022

Every time I see Sandra she gives me important advice to help me move through my recovery easier. I am eternally grateful to have her as my therapist.


Oct 17, 2022

Sandra was amazing. I have seen quite a few counselors in my time and she did a great job. I was heard, she was open to trying to find the problem when I didn’t fit “the mould” of her questionnaire. Then gave me good guidance and greet referral information to check out on my own. And she showed me how to use the app to help me see a better picture of my concerns.


Sep 29, 2022

Sandra is insightful, caring and knowledgeable.


Aug 01, 2022

Sandra was compassionate, matter-of-fact, and insightful. She helped me tremendously in just our first session. I'm really grateful that I get to work with her.


Jul 19, 2022

Sandra is awesome. Every time she teaches me a better way to deal with my OCD.


Jul 05, 2022

She always makes me feel validated in what I’m feeling. I always feel more hopeful after my treatment.


Mar 10, 2022

Sandra is amazing! Articulate, empathetic, skilled


Dec 27, 2021

Sandra has taught me more about my OCD in a few sessions than I’ve learned in the past 35 years of having it. I look forward to my sessions! I also like that she sends me extra links to educate myself more on my OCD. She’s an amazing therapist.
