Licensed Therapist, LPC

After getting licensed in 2018, I worked at a local hospital within the Intensive out-patient care section. I moved into the world of OCD because of Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. ERP is a hands-on approach (even during a live teletherapy session) that allows me to figure out creative ways to address your fears concerning your OCD subtype or subtypes. It certainly matches my style. But above all, I enjoy helping people, and I want to help you overcome your OCD.

I've been a licensed therapist since 2014, with many years of experience at an OCD residential unit at Rogers Memorial Hospital where I saw some of the most debilitating cases of OCD. I learned about Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy, the most effective form of OCD treatment, in college and decided to focus on ERP in both undergrad and grad school. It’s been my intent to help people with OCD get through their challenges, so I’m happy that I’m able to show you how to manage OCD on your own with confidence.

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.

For the past 5 years, I've specialized in OCD and trauma working in a local hospitalization program. I've also treated people at an intensive outpatient facility, and for the past few years, have conducted 1-1 tele-therapy treatment sessions. As an OCD specialist with NOCD, I understand how to guide someone through virtual ERP exercises with great success. ERP stands for Exposure and Response Prevention therapy, and I love how quickly ERP can bring results.

Licensed Therapist, LPC

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.

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.

Licensed Therapist, LPC

In session, I like to create a warm environment. I don't want you to feel intimidated by me just because I'm a professional. This is a collaborative process. I'm here to work with you, and it's important for you to be actively involved in the process. Outside of work, I love spending time with my dog. I help a foundation that raises money for dogs in foster care. I go on walks with the group and join events where I can be supportive.

Licensed Therapist, LPC

In therapy, I like to be direct, collaborative, and empowering. The analogy I like to use is that we're going on a road trip; I'm in the passenger seat, and you're in the driver's seat. You're in charge of how fast we're going, when we turn, and what route we take. We are collaborating. Outside of work, I do endurance cycling, running, yoga, and strength training. I think a lot of the lessons I've learned as an endurance athlete apply to ERP.

My therapy style is interactive and engaging. I am not a "nod and smile" therapist, rather I will challenge you in every session. That being said, my style is also laid-back, supportive, and warm; yet honest and direct. I will not ask you to do anything that I would be unwilling to do myself. Fun fact about me: I am 100% Greek and very engaged with my Greek culture; Greek dancing, cooking, and music are a huge part of my hobbies!

Licensed Therapist, MS

When we first meet, I like to find out what's important to you. What are your goals? Then we can deal with OCD's symptoms to get to those goals. Keeping those goals in mind during treatment helps when I'm asking you to do something scary—we know that we're working on the thing you want the most. A fun fact about me: I may seem like a serious type, but I love to binge reality-TV shows—the Real Housewives, anything like that.
