My OCD became problematic over 30 years ago. I was diagnosed incorrectly, and struggled with OCD for a long time. This affected my relationships and work for years until I found treatment that actually helped me get better, which was Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. I quit my career in IT to become a specialized OCD therapist. I myself use ERP because I know from firsthand experience that it works.

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 am committed to the efficacy of exposure response prevention, because it works! I will highlight your strengths and encourage you to use them through the ERP process. There is no easy way around it—you have to do the work, but we are here to support you through those challenges. Some fun facts about me: I'm a hopeless animal enthusiast and have two rescue dogs, Juno and Ike. I like to pretend that I know how to cook, run in the park, hike the mountains, and I recently started a garden. My favorite part so far is pulling weeds—it is surprisingly satisfying.

Matthew Culbreath

Matthew Culbreath

Licensed Therapist, M.Ed

As an OCD therapist, my approach is like that of a person-centered personal trainer. First and foremost, you'll be unconditionally accepted, appreciated, and respected. I’m guessing that OCD has told you that you’re no good, unworthy of acceptance, and should be deeply ashamed. These are lies, and I aim to help you see through them. We will meet, collaborate to decide on a target, and develop exercises to build “strength” or resilience to anxiety-evoking thoughts. You will feel in charge of your recovery; we “add more weight to the bar” only when you’re ready. Outside of work, I look forward to growing vegetables in the warm weather seasons. I have pet Shih-Tzu that strongly resembles an Ewok (from Return of the Jedi). She is full of various hijinks but really likes to steal red bell peppers from my garden.

My approach to treating OCD is empathetic and open.

Your thoughts are not reality. They're just thoughts. Once you realize that, you can work on becoming less afraid or bothered by the thoughts and not allow them to dictate your actions. You are in control of your actions, regardless of your thoughts. Outside of work, I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my family and being outdoors. I've been weightlifting since I was 15 years old and powerlifting since my early 20s. I also enjoy reading and listening to podcasts.
