About

You may have learned that OCD can be extremely time-consuming and takes away your energy. The obsessions and compulsions cause significant emotional distress as it interferes with your day-to-day responsibilities and relationships. OCD is also treatable, and with the right guidance, you can learn to manage it. I can teach you how. It brings me great joy when people tell me how far they’ve come in such a short period of time using ERP therapy. People have said that I conduct sessions with compassion, understanding and acceptance. As your therapist, I will be here to support and encourage you through the entire process. Together, we can overcome your OCD.

My job is to make sure you are being heard and making tangible improvements towards regaining your life.

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

Mary has helped me immeasurably. I have learned so much about OCD from her and the benefits of ERP. My default is to resist ERP. While never forcing me to do something, she can be very persuasive and persistent in the benefit that will be achieved if I do the ERP. When I am too hard on myself she will show tremendous compassion with the struggle that OCD can present.

Top notch therapist! She has really opened my eyes on how to approach my OCD. I was doing it wrong for many years! So glad I have the right tools now.

She’s a great person with a lot of personality. She cares a lot & at the core wants me to feel better.

Can't say a whole lot it was more of an intake than therapy, but really looking forward to the outcome

NOCD and Mary have absolutely revolutionized my life. Therapy has allowed me to take back my life. I am actually living, doing things I enjoy with the people I love with minimal disruption from my intrusive thoughts. I was buried under my OCD for so long, and I finally feel like I have come up for air. I am getting to know this different version of myself, and I cannot tell you how liberating it is to know that life outside of OCD exists and is beautiful.

Mary is the perfect at helping me see which direction is OCD based, and what direction is reality based.

She was firm and held me accountable for getting off track with my ERP, but she was fair. She was exactly what i needed to hear.
