Steven Maurno

Licensed Therapist, LPC

I’ve been a practicing therapist for over 20 years, mostly in correctional facilities working with juveniles and adults. I’ve helped many people overcome adversity, and what I saw in clients with OCD is a lack of access to proper guidance. I want to make a difference in the lives of people with OCD by teaching them the skills they need to create positive change. That opportunity is available through Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy, the gold standard treatment for OCD.

I've been a licensed therapist for over 8 years. During my career, I have treated many people for alcohol addiction and other challenges such as OCD.
