Meet IOCDF Advocate Kimberley Quinlan! Kimberley shares the reasons why she became an IOCDF Advocate in the video below. Learn more about our advocate program.
“While I was training to be a therapist I immediately found and was intrigued by how harsh people with OCD are on themselves —how poorly they can treat themselves, how they can criticize themselves and punish themselves for the intrusive thoughts that they’re having. I have such a deep sense of empathy and compassion for them and that has been the main purpose of my work, to number one help them get better and give them science-based tools to do so— but also to be the voice where I help them identify when they’re beating themselves up for the thoughts that they are having, or for the compulsion they are doing, and help them learn how to get skills for that.” — Kimberley Quinlan, LMFT
