OCD and anxiety can sometimes involve some pretty taboo and embarrassing topics.  We talk about it all here.  No shame, no hiding - let's do this.

we get really really real. no topics are too taboo

Take me with you on a walk, listen to me while you're doing house chores.  I'm here to hold you accountable and give you that kick in the butt if needed.

it's like chatting with a friend. a raw, no bs friend

You won't find calming techniques or coping skills here.  Well, at least not the kind that you're probably used to getting on podcasts.

not your average mental health podcast

"Love this podcast. It's fascinating and a God send. Thank you."

- Stephanie

"Every episode has been fantastic. They have brought me to tears, made me laugh, I relate to them so much."

Only a couple of years ago, I was right where you are. Just like you, I wanted to get rid of my scary thoughts. I had a lot of research and clinical experience under my belt. Then I had an intrusive thought that made me feel like my brain broke.

I'm here with over 16 years of clinical, research, and now personal experience to tell you everything I know about OCD, anxiety, and how to get your life back.

I started this podcast back in 2020 after realizing that I was having a lot of the same conversations with my clients.  Of course, everyone is unique.  But - a lot of the conversations had so much overlap.

This podcast is me bringing all of those conversations to you, because I know not all of you have the luxury of an awesome, 1:1 therapist who knows what they're talking about.

Episode #127 – Mentally Reviewing As A Compulsion in OCD and Anxiety

Research shows that, up to 80% of the time, professionals will misdiagnose OCD when it is not a clear-cut, conventional subtype or manifestation (e.g., fear of germs, needing to have things be perfect). The frequency with which OCD is misdiagnosed has devastating and significant impacts. In this episode, I talk about why OCD gets misdiagnosed […]

Recovery from OCD and anxiety is a process, not a destination. It involves learning to manage symptoms in a way that allows for a full and meaningful life.

In this episode, I talk about my opinions regarding what recovery looks like when you have OCD or anxiety. Specifically, I go over the chronic vs treatable debate, whether there is a “cure” for OCD/anxiety, and why, despite all of this, you can still live a beyond incredible life.  I also talk about… Like this […]
