Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD
OCD therapist Theresa Barton, Licensed Therapist, LMHC, Licensed OCD Therapist

Theresa Barton

Licensed Therapist, LMHC


Having OCD makes a person think that their intrusive thoughts are important and mean something about their character. These thoughts feel real and even scare people into thinking they can act on them. But intrusive thoughts are not a reflection of who you are, and because of that, there’s no genuine intention of wanting to make your thoughts real. But it’s not that easy to allow intrusive thoughts to simply pass by. I’ll show you how to face them and not rely on compulsions to relieve the anxiety that they cause. I happen to be a board-certified coach. Motivating people is second nature to me. The key to our sessions is that I will look to tap into what’s already inside you, that willingness to work and overcome challenges. I will walk beside you as you embark on your journey to feeling better in all aspects of your life.

The best therapist I’ve ever had. Theresa is FANTASTIC. I’m only a few sessions in and I can see the drastic changes happening in my life already.

Learning ERP has been a game changer for me. I am thankful for my therapist, her knowledge and the safe space that she provides.

I've lived with OCD for 13 years now and have previously had talk therapy, which never helped. My experience with ERP and my therapist has been incredible and truly life changing. OCD went from all consuming to a manageable and small fraction of my life. I am forever grateful and am continuing to put in the work for a better future :)

Theresa is such an incredible therapist. Empathetic, kind, attentive and thoughtful. I've been working with her for quite sometime now and can't imagine what I'd do without her. I met her at a very challenging time in my life and she's been instrumental with improving my mental fitness and my ability to effectively manage OCD. I can't say enough good things about Theresa and highly recommend working with her.
