I am Jake Kinzie, the founder of Recover Now. Drawing from more than 25 years of personal experience grappling with OCD and depression, I utilize my journey and acquired knowledge to assist others in their recovery process. By spearheading an online OCD support community, orchestrating 12-step program sessions, and offering guidance as a certified Peer Recovery Specialist, I am committed to empowering individuals along their journey to well-being. Through fostering mutual support and the exchange of personal narratives, I not only extend assistance to others but also fortify my own path toward healing.


Living with OCD can be incredibly challenging. It’s more than just a series of rituals and obsessions; it’s a relentless force that can make you feel isolated and overwhelmed. For years, OCD had a tight grip on my life, leaving me feeling scared and ashamed. But through acceptance, positive self-talk, and taking proactive steps towards recovery, I found my way out. Now, I’m passionate about sharing the tools and techniques that helped me reclaim my life from OCD, empowering others to break free and rediscover the joy of living fully.

Don’t just take our word for it, hear from our clients


I have experience working with people who have different types of OCD, including POCD, harm OCD, contamination OCD, checking OCD, moral scrupulosity, health OCD and other types. That being said, during our initial consultation, we can discuss your specific experience and see if I
would be a good fit for your recovery.

Yes. My suggestions should compliment what you are doing in therapy, as I have used a lot of the same techniques that a licensed therapist teaches. That being said, I suggest you consult your therapist or professional to see if they would recommend adding a Peer Recovery Specialist to your recovery plan.

This is a peer support program, which means you will be getting help from someone who truly understands what it’s like living with OCD. I am a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist in the state of Virginia. I use my lived experience with OCD and my experience working with others with OCD to help people struggling with OCD. I strive to educate people on how OCD works and to teach people the various coping strategies that have helped me recover, including focusing on the person’s unique strengths and abilities.

Absolutely not. I have OCD and I understand just how debilitating the disease can be, but I also know that there are lots of paths to recovery; it’s just a matter of finding the right path that works for you. My goal is to support and assist you on your journey to finding your path of recovery and to help you learn to trust yourself again.
