As the founder of OCD North and one of the few pediatric OCD specialists in her area, Merrisa is passionate about improving access to effective treatment. Merrisa holds a master’s degree in social work, trained in SPACE, completed a Paediatric OCD BTTI, and holds certification in Exposure and Response Prevention. With humor, authenticity, and a bit of sass, she leads a team of equally passionate social workers in her semi-small town and virtually across Canada (in 6 provinces and counting). Merrisa is loved by her clients and feared by OCD.
