In a world that seems to get smaller and smaller, Aubrey’s explorative curiosity developed into a fascination with the vast frontier of self-discovery intrinsic in mental health counseling. Aubrey studied brain and cognitive sciences at the University of Rochester and went on to study Neuropsychology at the University of Miami where she graduated with honors.
After three years researching novel interventions for bipolar disorder and schizophrenia at Penn State Hershey Medical Center, Aubreyenrolled in Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s Doctor of Clinical Psychologyprogram. Her therapeutic work has since focused on mood and anxiety disorders, severe mental health, interventions with forensic populations, and neuro psychological evaluations.
Aubrey favors evidence-based practices in treatment, and values building a treatment plan with clients in a collaborative manner. Interventions are therefore tailored according to the three arms of evidence-based practice; to not only consider research-based evidence on a given therapy’s efficacy and effectiveness in conjunction with clinical judgement, but also reflect a client’s own preferences and values. Therefore, Aubrey’s the rapeutic style will often include transtheoretical, time-limited psychodynamic, and cognitive-behavioral approaches.
