Meet our licensed OCD therapists available for live video sessions in Iowa. We accept many insurance plans, including Cigna, Aetna, United Healthcare, and BCBS to treat OCD and related conditions in Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Davenport, and surrounding areas. We also offer many affordable options to help people access treatment if we don't accept their insurance.
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.Read more
I practice what I preach. I'm very open with the people I work with about what we're doing and what my experience with OCD has been. I like to make sure members guide the session as much as they can, and I like to incorporate humor as much as possible to lighten the mood. Outside of work, I like hanging out with my dogs Miko and Flick. A random fun fact about me: My two-year-old child was born in a Texas snowstorm.Read more
As a therapist, my approach is to meet you where you are today. Then, through the evidence-based practice of ERP, I will provide the support and tools to empower you to overcome your thoughts and urges and pursue the life you truly want for yourself. Outside of work, I’m equal parts book nerd and nature lover. I enjoy being by the water, going to the beach, rock hunting, hiking, fishing, and getting out in nature. I also love board games, books, painting, coloring, drawing, writing poetry, and watching TV (horror movies, true crime shows, and ridiculous stand-up comedy are my favorites).Read more
I take a collaborative and non-judgmental approach to treating OCD. I'm willing to do everything I ask my members to do, and I work to challenge specific core fears so we work at the roots of OCD, not just the branches. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my partner, two children, dog, and cat. I enjoy going on walks and hikes when it isn't too hot, reading, and spending time with friends and family. I also enjoy being around horses whenever possible.Read more
