Episode #97

Madina Alam is a licensed therapist, specializing in OCD treatment, specifically, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. She is the Director of clinical operations for #NOCD and a Certified Yoga Teacher. Madina and I discuss OCD, ERP Therapy, rumination, and why she chose to focus on OCD therapy and treatment. We also talk about Madina’s most recent health scare, what she’s learning from the experience, and getting comfortable in uncertainty.

“Therapy will look like short term discomfort to give you long term relief.” – Madina Alam
