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. My 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.
I utilize 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. I have extensive experience in clinical and health research, as a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Population Medicine at Harvard Medical School, my expertise as a Harvard fellow focuses upon client-centered approaches to improving Black women's health.
I am committed to assisting each individual, couple, or family build on their existing strengths. I have a solution-focused goal-oriented approach to therapy where I work with my clients to assess their current state, set goals on what they would like to achieve, and employ a plan of action to reach their goals. My aim is to help empower clients through a process of self-reflection, self-discover, and positive change.
