Welcome to
Informed OCD Counseling

I'm Laura, an OCD therapist with over 8 years' experience as a mental health counselor. I specialize in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders, with a focus on using evidence-based treatments, such as exposure and response prevention (ERP).

Did you know that, on average, individuals with OCD wait 10-17 years between first experiencing symptoms and receiving appropriate treatment (Albert et al., 2019; Pinto et al, 2006)? OCD is a highly misunderstood and misdiagnosed disorder, and, sadly, this means that many individuals suffer unnecessarily for years before getting help. Through consultation and training services, I strive to educate others on OCD in order to reduce treatment gaps and increase early identification of symptoms so that children, teens, and adults with OCD can get the help they need sooner.
