Dr. Whitney Irie

People encounter many different types of adversities and how they recover is shaped by the gentleness and self-compassion they practice with themselves. Dr. Irie's therapeutic approach is to provide support and counseling to help clients effectively address personal life challenges including, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family stressors, anger management, adjustments and transitions, interpersonal struggles, and much more.

She utilizes various approaches, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, and solution-focused brief therapy, to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. She has extensive experience in clinical and health research, as a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Population Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Her expertise as a Harvard fellow focuses upon client-centered approaches to improving Black women's health, specifically sexual health. In May 2022, Dr. Irie interviewed with the New York Times Magazine emphasizing the research that highlights sexual safety and fertility in women of color.

She is committed to assisting each individual, couple, or family to build on their existing strengths. Her solution-focused, goal-oriented approach to therapy has served as effective and immediate, where she assesses a client's current state, set goals on what they would like to achieve, and employ a plan of action to reach their goals. Her aim is to help empower clients through a process of self-reflection, self-discover, and positive change.
