Heather Driver

Licensed Therapist, LPC

I entered the mental health field in 2008 and became a licensed therapist in 2015. Since then, I've held a private practice where I've been able to gain experience using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to treat OCD. As an OCD specialist with NOCD, I continue to use ERP not just because it was designed specifically for all OCD subtypes, but because it's proven to work.

As a therapist treating people with OCD, I want people to understand and reduce their anxiety caused by intrusive thoughts. I’ll help you get familiar with your anxiety, and to teach you how to work through it. I’ve worked as a health provider for over 20 years and use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy, because it helps address your physical, mental, and emotional challenges when dealing with OCD.

Licensed Therapist, LCSW

As a therapist, I'm very humanistic. I believe your treatment should be guided by you. I encourage you to have compassion for yourself as you learn to recognize that you are not your thoughts. When I'm not doing therapy, I enjoy acrylic painting. I love doing 'dirty pours,' where you pour a bunch of paints together on a canvas, and a piece begins to take the shape of its very own unique, individual self.

Licensed Therapist, LMFT

As a therapist, I emphasize collaboration and our relationship. In all therapy, the relationship between therapist and member is fundamental, but I think it's even more important in ERP, because we talk about stuff that's really hard, sit in the shame that might come up, and navigate that together. I like to add a touch of humor when it's appropriate—I think striking the right balance between light and difficult is important. Outside of work, I love to perform in a local theater. Musicals are my thing.
