Terrie Browning

Licensed Therapist, LPC

I began my career treating general anxiety and depression, but since 2014, I've been getting more involved with OCD cases. I've seen more severe OCD cases as time has gone on and learned how Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy is the most effective way to treat OCD. ERP is a treatment that allows you to have more control over unwanted thoughts, so you don't have to live in fear of them. I've seen how ERP can help bring success and joy to someone's life.

Licensed Therapist, MSW

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.

Licensed Therapist, LCSW

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.

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 love meeting different types of people, helping them at a time when they most need it, and seeing them progress. For most of my working years, I was a Spanish teacher and guidance counselor. But my greatest role by far is being a mom to a teenage daughter.

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.
