I want you to have a life with the ability to make the choices you want, but that can be hard to do when you have OCD. Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy allows you to do that.I’ve been practicing as a licensed therapist since 2014, and I know that learning how to manage OCD takes time, but not as much as you might think. After only a few sessions and a commitment to doing ERP, you may notice feeling significantly better.

The road to becoming a therapist that specializes in OCD happened quite naturally for me. I’ve been a therapist (LPC) for over 10 years, working within an OCD clinical program as well as in-patient cases at a local hospital. I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to treat OCD because it’s the most effective therapy for OCD. I've found it refreshing to see a treatment work and bring happiness to my clients. This level of happiness is what I want for you.

I specialize in OCD as a licensed therapist. My experience with OCD has developed while working in partial hospitalization and therapeutic school settings. I would treat OCD when exhibited in combination with other mental health challenges such as depression, suicidal ideation, and mood disorders. I would use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to help people minimize their fears while working to decrease the severity of their symptoms. With NOCD, I’ll use ERP to help you overcome your OCD.

For me, therapy is a journey. It's my privilege to walk with people and help them get to where they want to go. To me, this is a partnership. I don't lead my sessions. You lead our sessions, and I work as a guide. You are your own best expert on your life. When I'm not doing therapy, I have a lot of hobbies. I love to crochet, and I am an avid Winnie the Pooh fan.

I approach treating OCD by being educational and validating. OCD is often misunderstood, and people can feel alone in their thoughts and experiences. I aim to provide members with the proper education and support so they can be as prepared as possible for OCD treatment. Outside of work I enjoy playing tennis, reading, baking, watching Bravo TV shows, and spending time with friends and family.

I help people understand and validate their journey through OCD while explaining the process in which freedom can be achieved from OCD through ERP. Therapy allows you to learn to face obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors in a way that builds hope, confidence, and the ability to successfully 'fire' your therapist! Outside of work, personal time involves my wife and three kids. We enjoy going on day trips, playing and watching sports, all things The Office, and spending time with friends and family.

I approach treating someone with OCD with compassion and understanding for their individual concerns. I'm supportive and encouraging to those I treat. When trust is built, there may be moments of 'tough love' to help someone take the next step in the process. Through the course of working together, I like to use humor and real-life teachable moments, so each person knows they are unique. Outside of work, I enjoy playing sports socially and practicing yoga. I also love to catch up on favorite programs and movies, listen to podcasts and audiobooks, and read.

Licensed Therapist, LPC

My approach to treating OCD is flexible, accepting, and holistic. My primary goal is for my members to have a full and valuable life, with as little interference from OCD as possible. I think it is important to have broader goals for therapy, as well as the goal of reducing OCD symptoms. I want to know how your life would be better if your OCD was under control. What would it free you up to do or to be if you were not spending time on compulsions? Outside of work, I am a mom to two little boys who teach me a lot about patience, listening, and emotional regulation. I love reading fiction and am on track to read about 60 books by the end of this year.

I take a practical approach to most things, and treating OCD is no different. I use exposure response prevention (ERP) because it has been demonstrated to be the most effective. So why wouldn’t I want to use the best tool we have to treat OCD? Outside of work, I love to ride horses (English hunt seat), watch movies, and travel around the world. A fun fact about me: I never owned my own horse, but I was in a national horse trivia competition when I was in high school.

I approach OCD treatment with compassion and respect. I will keep you informed with honesty and directness. Progressional and exposure-based treatment is most effective when done in the appropriate way. Outside of work, I love to be outside and active. I like going to the gym, walking my dog, and being out in the sun. I consider myself an amateur foodie. I moved to the South a few years back, and it was the best decision I ever made. Although I miss the mountains, I don't miss the snow and the cold!

Here at NOCD, we use an approach called Exposure and Response Prevention, or ERP. It's a remarkable treatment modality and is considered the gold standard for OCD treatment. We will take a collaborative approach to therapy. Together, we will create a hierarchy of fears and work our way through it. Eventually, we'll get to the top, where we'll combat some of your greatest challenges with OCD. There is no timeline for this, and I'll be with you throughout the whole process. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a one-year-old daughter, so we're always on the go and trying new things. We love doing outdoorsy activities such as going for hikes, swimming, and walking my two pit bulls. I’m also a fan of reality TV, and I make sure never to miss a Philadelphia Eagles game!

I've also never laughed so long and hard at anything in all my 64 years.

Licensed Therapist, MSW

In therapy, I like to start with building a foundation, so you'll feel comfortable sharing your obsessions, triggers, and compulsions. Then, we're able to discuss how much distress they cause you and can move forward to practicing resisting compulsions when uncomfortable thoughts arise. This will help you regain control over your life. Some fun facts about me: I have two cats; you'll likely meet them at some point. I'm a big horror movie buff and enjoy painting, coloring, embroidering, puzzling, hiking, and spending time with family and friends.

People with OCD tend to feel stuck in their OCD cycle, and I want to help people break out of that cycle. I provide plenty of psychoeducation about the therapy process, so you'll know what to expect in treatment. I will firmly and fairly guide you along your exposure hierarchy as we work to lessen the distress caused by your obsessions. I also implement mindfulness techniques to help you accept whatever happens in life. Outside of work, I'm a musician who plays the keyboard, guitar, bass, saxophone, and drums. I have a dog, cat, and four chickens. I also like to hike in national parks.
