Dr. Amy Schullery is a licensed psychologist who helps adolescents and adults achieve better control over anxiety and stress in their lives. She works with students, young adults, parents, and professionals struggling with feeling overwhelmed by the stresses of growing up, work, parenting, family demands, marriage, and other obstacles in life. Dr. Schullery owns her own practice and handles everything from the first phone call to ensure your privacy and meet your individual needs.
I received my B.A. in Psychology from American University and completed my doctoral education in 2007 at the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology at Widener University. During my graduate training, I provided therapy and psychological assessment to children, teens, and adults. Over the years, I have worked in inpatient and outpatient mental health settings providing services to a broad spectrum of clients, as well as in school psychology providing testing and counseling to students.
During my doctoral training, I also completed a concentration in Organizational Psychology. I have studied emotional intelligence and interpersonal dynamics in the workplace, leadership assessment, and executive coaching. I have also worked in the non-profit sector helping organizations set and achieve their goals.
I have experience with a variety of psychological concerns and have had training in a variety of therapeutic techniques, including cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic approaches. I believe that no two clients are alike and that each person I work with has a unique life story, and therefore unique needs and goals. I draw from my training and experience to tailor my approach and specific interventions to meet the needs of each client.
I have studied the areas of anxiety, mindfulness, and postpartum/parenting issues extensively, and have worked with many teens, college students, young professionals, and new parents over the years.
Above all, my focus is on maintaining a collaborative and supportive relationship with my clients, so they may feel comfortable telling their story and bringing up concerns and questions as they arise.
I am so glad that you have found me. I look forward to supporting you and getting to know you better.
