Natalie R. Noel, LMHC
Natalie R. Noel is a licensed mental health counselor in the Tampa Bay area focusing on the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), OC related disorders, anxiety disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and depression. Natalie was trained by Dr. Eric Storch, a world-renowned researcher and expert in OCD and OC related disorders. Her training included treating individuals with very severe cases of OCD and anxiety disorders at Rogers Behavioral Health in Tampa. Natalie led a portion of the partial hospitalization program at Rogers where she treated some of the most severe cases of OCD and previously led the intensive outpatient program for OCD at Rogers Memorial Hospital in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. Natalie received her master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Houston-Clear Lake.
Natalie was the founding president of the OCD Central & South Florida affiliate of the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF). The IOCDF is an organization devoted to spreading awareness about OCD, ending the stigma associated with the illness, and training providers in exposure response prevention treatment so that specialized treatment is more readily available across the country.
Natalie’s treatment involves carefully listening to her clients’ thoughts, feelings, and then incorporating the client’s needs for treatment into a personalized treatment plan. Active participation is required. She offers individual and group therapy for clients using evidence-based treatment components to significantly reduce symptoms so that they may live happier, healthier, and more engaging lives. Natalie also incorporates career counseling due to the vast number of clients who have been out of work as a result of their symptoms.
Natalie does not accept insurance, however, if clients have out-of-network benefits, they might be able to receive some reimbursement from their insurance company. Clients must contact to their insurance company directly to inquire about benefits. While behavior therapist is an investment in your future, it typically is not a long-term process. Those engaging in behavioral treatment often report quick improvements, however, duration of treatment depends on symptom severity and client’s ability or willingness to engage in treatment at home.
