I specialize in treating OCD, and use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to effectively treat people with OCD because I know that I will see progress throughout our sessions. I've happily spent over 30 years working at a community mental health services facility, which includes therapist work and supervision of social workers and other therapists. I like how NOCD makes it easier to do ERP exercises because of the NOCD app's tools. It brings me great joy when I see how happy people feel as they get better.

I’m headed for my 21st year as a licensed therapist and love helping people break free from OCD. I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy during sessions, which I learned how to use early on in my practice. I have only grown to become more confident in my ability to treat people effectively using ERP. I’m a published writer, including a book on OCD and how to move from fear to freedom. I’m excited to work with you and can’t wait to set you up for success in your ERP journey.

I’m going on a decade of experience as a licensed social worker, treating mood & anxiety disorders, addiction, domestic violence, and OCD. I’ve learned that people struggling with disorders have a hard time finding access to a professional diagnosis. NOCD changes that. As a specialized OCD therapist, I’ll provide you with a diagnosis and, if you show signs of OCD, I’ll use the most trusted method in treating OCD called Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. ERP is well-researched and proven to work.

I deal with anxiety myself and know the physical symptoms that go along with it. But I also know my anxiety is nothing compared to your OCD. I've been treating people with OCD for over 25 years as a licensed therapist, and I can tell you that out of all the available treatments out there, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy is your best option. It's the only therapy I use to treat OCD.

As a therapist, I am non-judgmental. Our sessions will be very collaborative—we'll start where you are and go from there, depending on what your needs are. When I'm not doing therapy, I love to be outside. My family has a lake house in Michigan that we go to often, and I love to go there with my son and my husband to kayak when we can.

Licensed Therapist, LPC

I’ve been a licensed therapist for almost 9 years, treating people for OCD as well as other mental health challenges. Having spent time with top clinicians at NOCD, I provide Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to those battling any subtype of OCD. ERP is the gold standard of OCD treatment and is not only backed by evidence but gives you a realistic chance to see progress within a short period of time. I’ve dealt with OCD myself, so I know what it’s like to break away and recover from OCD obsessions and compulsions.

I specialize in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to treat your OCD effectively, with a background in helping people deal with severe mental illnesses.

Licensed Therapist, LCSW

As a therapist, I am very client-centered. I will meet you where you are and how you're feeling. I'll let you tell me your story first. I won't project any preconceived ideas on what your problems are. When I'm not doing therapy, I love cooking. I probably spend too much time watching cooking shows, trying to learn new techniques. If I've been to a restaurant, I will research their menu online and try to duplicate an excellent dish. I enjoy that immensely.

Licensed Therapist, LPC

I became a therapist because of my own mental-health journey. I know what it's like to address what's going on inside your head, and successfully come out the other side. In OCD therapy, we'll look at your thought processes to address what's going on and build coping skills to manage the anxiety. Outside of work, I have six kids, a big blended family. I'm big into reading. I read just about anything. Usually, I'm reading about four books at once.

Licensed Therapist, MSW

I treat people with OCD the same as I would treat someone without OCD. I treat you as an individual, with individual experiences, and individual needs. I view you as an expert on your OCD. Outside of work, I am a father to two daughters. I love binge-watching TV shows with my wife. When the weather is nice, you can always find my family at the park hiking or playing at the playground.

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.

Licensed Therapist, LMSW

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).

NOCD utilizes an evidence-based approach to treatment. It might be really challenging, but you can do it! I love when a member discovers a realization about something they've been thinking or doing that isn't helping them, then work to change their thoughts and behaviors. Outside of work, I enjoy reading, watching movies, music (playing and listening), family, arts/crafts, swimming, video gaming, and traveling.

Licensed Therapist, LPC

My approach to OCD treatment is collaborative. I want to empower members to make decisions in their treatment. We'll create a treatment plan together to make sure your goals are reflected in our work. We'll break things down into manageable challenges, rather than taking it on all at once. When I’m not at work, I spend a lot of my time outdoors. I enjoy hiking, boating, fishing, photography, and attending community events.

My therapeutic approach involves using ERP, an evidenced-based treatment approach to create a supportive, nonjudgmental, collaborative, didactic, therapeutic space to treat OCD. In addition to being a therapist supporting clients with OCD, I’m a wife, boy mom, and dog mom (I have three dogs: two toy poodles and a cocker spaniel). I love to travel and experience new cultures and places, spend time with my family and friends, and read. I am actively involved with my sorority and volunteer as a crisis counselor with LBGT+ youth.

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.

My approach to treating OCD is collaborative and will be tailored to fit the unique needs of each person. ERP therapy is a structured type of therapy, and I will always do my best to walk you through the process as we design your treatment. Although ERP can be a fairly direct therapy, I never forget that humor can be a great additive in session and can strengthen our rapport. Outside of work, you can find me hiking in some of the most beautiful mountains Arizona has to offer with my dog, Charlie.

As your OCD therapist, I'll teach you how to regain control over repetitive behaviors by utilizing exposure prevention response techniques. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, watching rom-coms, listening to jazz and traveling. A fun fact about me: I lived in Alaska for 15 years and loved it.

Licensed Therapist, MA

My counseling philosophy is based on the therapist being the facilitator of processes that support you in finding solutions to your problems and empowering you to take responsibility for your own outcomes and solutions. Outside of work, I love traveling, swimming in the ocean, visiting places I’ve never seen before, walking the streets and meeting new people in lands foreign to me. My goal is to travel outside of the U.S. at least twice a year, and increase my confidence to travel greater distances each year.
