Licensed Therapist, LCSW

The most important aspect of treatment is to have somebody you can talk to, who you feel comfortable with. Somebody who's going to listen to you and you feel you can trust. Making sure that that therapeutic alliance is established is my number one priority. Outside of work, I really enjoy crafting. I love to make homemade gifts for friends and family.

Licensed Therapist, LPC

I like to get a good understanding of how your OCD developed and what obsessions and compulsions have developed as a result. We'll go through this in-depth, and then you'll be asked to challenge yourself. It will be uncomfortable, and you'll feel pushed to confront your thoughts and behaviors, but this is how you recover. Outside of work, I love to spend time with my family and dogs Waffles and Pepper. We like to go for walks, swim, cook delicious meals, and watch documentaries. When I like to treat myself, I go for a massage or get a pedicure. I also love a good book, and I'm always open to new recommendations.

Nicole Gustafson

Licensed Therapist, MA

My approach to treating OCD is person-centered and evidence-based. I take time to learn about each of my members as the unique individuals they are. I develop an understanding of how one’s biological, social, and psychological circumstances impact their current symptoms and experiences. Once the proper foundation has been established, members and I work collaboratively, using ERP techniques to help them achieve their personal goals. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, outdoor activities, painting, traveling, and spending quality time with family and friends. I adore animals, with a particular fondness for dogs and cats. I'm also an avid reader of mystery novels. Feel free to ask me about my current reads and share any recommendations!

Here at NOCD, we use an approach called Exposure and Response Prevention, or ERP. It's a remarkable treatment modality and is considered the gold standard for OCD treatment. We will take a collaborative approach to therapy. Together, we will create a hierarchy of fears and work our way through it. Eventually, we'll get to the top, where we'll combat some of your greatest challenges with OCD. There is no timeline for this, and I'll be with you throughout the whole process. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a one-year-old daughter, so we're always on the go and trying new things. We love doing outdoorsy activities such as going for hikes, swimming, and walking my two pit bulls. I’m also a fan of reality TV, and I make sure never to miss a Philadelphia Eagles game!
