Licensed Therapist, Psychologist

I’ve been treating people with OCD since 2016, and now I work as an OCD specialist. It’s always been my passion to treat people with OCD, partly because I have my own experiences with intrusive thoughts. I participated in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy, so I know how well ERP can work for someone with OCD. ERP is incredibly effective and works for all OCD subtypes.

Alexandra Thieman

Licensed Therapist, LCSW

I've had OCD since I was seven. My therapist compared it to whack-a-mole: when you cover one area, something else can pop up. I used to have health obsessions, then when I got into a relationship, it became relationship OCD. After going through ERP therapy, I’m able to manage it so much better. That’s what made me want to become a therapist myself.
