I started as a therapist over 14 years ago, working in different mental health environments. Many people with OCD that weren't being treated for it crossed my path and weren't getting better. I decided that I wanted to help people with OCD, so I became an OCD therapist, and eventually, a clinical supervisor. I treated people using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and saw people get better day in and day out. I continue to use ERP because nothing is more effective in treating OCD.

Licensed Therapist, LCPC

I'm an OCD specialized therapist, and I began my career as a licensed clinical professional counselor. I have received training in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy under the guidance of Dr. Patrick McGranth, the head of clinical services at NOCD. Working with a research-based treatment like ERP is rewarding because it allows me to see people break free from the hold that OCD has over them.

I would describe myself as a kind-hearted drill sergeant. I bring compassion, understanding, and support to the therapy room, but I am also firm and direct. You can expect loads of sarcasm and humor. If we can laugh at OCD, it loses much of its power. After years of training and experience, I realized I had experienced obsessive compulsive tendencies since I was a child. These experiences help me understand where members are coming from, and work with them to develop a creative treatment plan that gets the results they want.

I've been a licensed OCD therapist since 2009 and have an M.A. in Clinical Counseling from The Chicago School Of Professional Psychology. I have personally dealt with anxiety disorders myself, and use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to treat OCD. I find working with people that have OCD rewarding when I see the changes they make after applying ERP tools into their lives.

Licensed Therapist, LCPC

My early training in how to treat OCD was led by Dr. Patrick McGrath himself. I’m a firm believer in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy because I’ve seen how well it works. You'll be asked to face your fears during our ERP sessions, and will need someone qualified like myself to help you overcome those fears. Participate in ERP therapy with me, learn the tools that will help you manage your OCD, and you’ll soon be on the road to getting the results you want.

Licensed Therapist, LCPC

As a therapist that specializes in OCD, I learned the value of structured therapy with concrete goals to reach during treatment. Before joining NOCD, my work in a community mental health clinic put me in front of diverse people and mental health issues. I treated anxiety, depression, and schizophrenia and even became a team leader at the clinic. I enjoy using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to treat people with OCD because ERP allows me to set those goals customized for your life, based on what you need.

Licensed Therapist, MA

One of the most important things about therapy is the connection and relationship between a therapist and the person seeking therapy. I work really hard not only to help both of us feel connected and heard but also for you to feel like this is a partnership. We're going to get a little uncomfortable together, because that's where most of the good work happens. Outside of work, I really enjoy spending time with my family and my daughter, cooking new foods, and playing chess.

Sarah Peterman

Licensed Therapist, LCSW

I like to collaborate with my members to develop a plan specific to the individual's needs as I implement evidence-based ERP strategies to achieve results. I am warm and compassionate, and I use humor throughout the treatment process. I find that this helps members feel comfortable and supported while I actively encourage them to lean into their discomfort and challenge OCD. I also frequently talk about the importance of self-compassion, acceptance, and living out your values. Outside of work, I love spending time with my dog, cat, and human family. I also volunteer weekly at a therapeutic horseback riding program for individuals with disabilities, and love reading and listening to music in my downtime.

Licensed Therapist, MSW

My approach to treating OCD is by utilizing the evidence-based practice of exposure and response prevention. We start slowly by introducing you to small situations or thoughts that trigger compulsions and actions, then carefully build up to more difficult exposures as we progress. While challenging, this will lead to greater control over your OCD, and greater control of your life in general. Aside from being a clinician, I very much enjoy music. One of my favorite hobbies involves converting popular songs into acoustic guitar performances. I am also a big movie and television buff. Dramas and thrillers are my favorite genres.

My approach to treating OCD entails gathering as much information as possible, establishing a plan, and checking in regularly. It's important to maintain open dialogue. When I'm not doing therapy, I love to travel and spend time with my family. I also enjoy watching comedy movies and spending time in my yard during summer.

Licensed Therapist, MA

My approach to treating OCD is centered around building a strong therapeutic alliance, fostering trust, and creating a safe space for open and honest communication. I believe that each person possesses the innate capacity for growth and self-discovery, and my role is to facilitate this process by providing guidance and support while tapping into your own superpowers to creatively problem-solve. In working with me as your NOCD therapist, you can expect a great deal of collaboration. I may be the expert in OCD and ERP therapy/treatment, but you are the expert of you. In my time outside of work, I enjoy training in the aerial arts (silks and lyra) and supporting the thriving Chicago circus community. I also enjoy spending quality time with my husband and toddler, especially outdoors. I recently discovered gardening, and creating my backyard sanctuary has become quite a therapeutic project.

Licensed Therapist, MSW

We are all human. We all have struggles that have made us into the people we are today. My approach to treating OCD includes collaboration, family involvement, compassion, empathy, and a sense of humor. We interact with so many different personalities on a daily basis. Getting to know my members on a personal, more human level is a priority of mine. Outside of work, I have an orange cat named George and a small terrier mix named Dozer. I love all animals, listen to many varieties of music, and have an extensive movie quote memory (to which I may throw into session from time to time).

I treat OCD with a case-by-case approach—everyone's situation varies. Treatment is tailored to each person's specific needs, using evidence-based approaches such as exposure response prevention (ERP), psychotherapy, CBT, and mindfulness. Outside of work, I love to travel, shop, work on home decorating, spend time with family, and connect with nature. If I ever get the nerve and opportunity, I actually would love to be an expat.
