My early training in how to treat OCD was led by Dr. Patrick McGrath himself. I’m a firm believer in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy because I’ve seen how well it works. You'll be asked to face your fears during our ERP sessions, and will need someone qualified like myself to help you overcome those fears. Participate in ERP therapy with me, learn the tools that will help you manage your OCD, and you’ll soon be on the road to getting the results you want.

I understand what you’re going through, because I have struggled with OCD myself. Outside of work, I enjoy true-crime books and podcasts, and I love being in nature. I once hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back up in one day. That's about 10 hours. I didn't think I'd make it, but I did. It was a great experience—but next time I'll spend the night before hiking back up.

Jason Gibbs

Licensed Therapist, Ph.D.

As a therapist, I try to create a welcoming, warm environment. When I first meet with someone, I like to start off by finding out what they want to get out of therapy. I'll craft a treatment plan with you based on that, realizing that other concerns can arise on a week-to-week basis. Outside of work, I'm a big fan of rock and metal music and love going to concerts. I also have three sugar gliders that I've had for about seven years. They are miniature flying squirrels, basically. So during our sessions, if there's ever any weird chirping that comes through a wall in the background, that's probably what you're hearing.

In ERP, one of the most effective forms of treatment for OCD, we'll work together to identify your specific triggers, obsessive thoughts and behaviors, then I'll guide you through techniques to face your fears gradually. I'll work with you to develop skills to tolerate distress and uncertainty without attempting to get rid of anxiety through compulsions. When I'm not working, my favorite hobby is traveling. I love experiencing new cultures, learning about people, eating new foods and taking photos.

Austin Daron

Austin Daron

Licensed Therapist, MA

I treat OCD with Exposure and Response Prevention therapy (ERP). This approach involves gradually exposing members to feared or triggering situations or thoughts while refraining from the compulsive behaviors they usually perform to reduce anxiety. The goal is to help members confront their fears and learn that anxiety naturally decreases over time without engaging in compulsions. This process helps break the cycle of obsession and compulsion, ultimately reducing the overall impact of OCD on their lives. A fun fact about me: I love playing Dungeons and Dragons with friends. Beyond that, I love all things entertainment, including movies, TV shows, and video games. I'm a proud parent to two medium-haired black cats that my partner and I rescued when they were just four weeks old.

Kiki  Tilton

Kiki Tilton

Licensed Therapist, MA

I love NOCD's treatment model. It gives you the ability to start treatment with increased frequency, which can make it intense. However, this is the best time to be focused and motivated and create the change you desire for yourself. As you learn how to tolerate discomfort, lean into those feelings, and make strides toward improvement, an "a-ha" moment occurs. You realize you are not your OCD—you are not your thoughts, and you can tolerate them. Some facts about me: My Christian faith is very important to me. I love working with people from all around the world; the diversity is such a joy to experience. I am bilingual and speak fluent Dutch and English. I was raised in the Netherlands (as a Dutch Navy brat) and have lived in the U.S. and the Netherlands for half my life. I am a cat lover to the core, and I appreciate sarcastic humor.

As a therapist, I'm direct and solution-centered. I challenge my members therapeutically—which can be a love/hate relationship at times—but is often rewarding. I love working with individuals and seeing how far they've come. I live on the coast of Texas and enjoy fishing, boat riding, and anything that has to do with the outdoors. Over the last few years, nature has been an element in my own healing journey. It's something I incorporate when giving myself self-care.

Licensed Therapist, MS

I utilize exposure and response prevention to treat OCD, working to confront and sit with those obsessions, tolerate the distress it brings, and resist any compulsive or automatic behaviors that come after. This behavioral practice comes with rooted reminders that OCD goes against who we are. I'm here to help you stay grounded in yourself and values as you do the hard work of ERP. Outside of work, I'm an avid reader (fantasy and thrillers and memoirs, oh my!) and love spending time with my book club. My spouse and I spend lots of time outside with our two dogs, playing board or video games with our best friends, and building LEGOs. Is coffee involved? I'll be there.
