“Natalie was a Godsend for both myself and my family.  She quickly addressed the beast head-on by outlining a tailored treatment program and equipping me with the tools to fight back.”

“Natalie guided me through ERP therapy and helped me gain the confidence to eventually do exposures that I would have never been able to do on my own. Natalie gave me a safe place to talk about my obsessions. She offered empathy and kindness while also being firm and saying things that I really needed to hear.”

“I went to several therapists before but their treatments were not the right fit for me.  I found Natalie and my life changed.”

“Through my sessions with Natalie I learned a healthier outlook on life and effective ways to cope with my anxiety. Natalie is an extremely talented professional who displays clinical acumen, compassion, and empathy.”

“I drive about 100 miles one way for treatment sessions with Natalie. It is worth the drive.”

“I am very satisfied with Natalie’s approach, knowledge, and commitment to my success.  I recommend Anxiety & OCD Treatment of Tampa Bay for anyone in need of effective mental health treatment.”

“Natalie held me accountable for my progress while reminding me to care for myself as we worked through my fears and emotions. I have been in some sort of therapy most of my life but working with Natalie was different. Natalie instilled confidence in me when I had none.”

“Before my OCD treatment my thoughts were all consuming. Every moment of every day was filled with thoughts of fear and ‘what if’s’.  I’d love to say, I’ve been cured, but again, there is no cure, but there’s Natalie Noel!”

“Any time I describe Natalie, it is as the woman who saved my marriage, my job…my life. She will always have a special place in my family’s life.”

“Natalie is fantastic at what she does and I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help.”

“For anyone suffering from OCD and reading this, I would like to say: Don’t hesitate, don’t procrastinate, and don’t let your obsessions control your life for another day. Exposure Response Prevention Treatment produces real results and in my experience, swift results. And without a doubt, Natalie is one of the best providers you can seek assistance from!”

“Choosing to undergo treatment with Natalie Noel was one of the best decisions I have ever made, forever changing my life’s course. Wherever you are at this moment, reading this testimonial, know this – OCD is conquerable, no matter how insurmountable it may seem at this given moment. You can beat this. You are not alone.”

“To say that Natalie changed my life and rescued me from an incredibly painful existence would be an understatement!”

Natalie R. Noel, LMHC

Natalie R. Noel is a licensed mental health counselor in the Tampa Bay area focusing on behavioral treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), OC related disorders, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and depression. Counseling for everyday life stressors is also provided. Natalie treats children, teens and adults.

She 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 within the Rogers Behavioral Health System. She led a partial hospitalization program for OCD at Rogers Behavioral Health in Tampa after leading 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 is 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 carefully listens to her clients’ thoughts, feelings, and then incorporates the client’s needs for treatment into a personalized treatment plan. Effective treatment for OCD and anxiety disorders is more than a passive modality. Therefore, active participation is required. She uses evidence-based treatment to significantly reduce symptoms so that they may live happier, healthier, and more engaging lives.

Natalie does not accept insurance. However, if clients have out-of-network benefits, they may be able to receive reimbursement for treatment from their insurance provider. Clients must contact to their insurance provider directly to inquire about benefits. While behavioral therapy is an investment in your future, it is typically not a long-term treatment. Those engaging in behavioral treatment often report quick improvements. However, duration of treatment depends on symptom severity and a clients ability or willingness to engage in treatment outside of therapy sessions.
