About Dr. Fitzgerald

Professional Background

I completed my Doctorate in Psychology with honors from California Southern University in 2018. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and an Approved Supervisor according to WAC 246-809-134. I provide clinical supervision to individuals working towards their licensure in the state of Washington. I have worked in the mental health field for over 11 years. I am currently a clinical supervisor in one of King County’s leading outpatient healthcare agency. In addition, I am also a Geriatric Mental Health Specialist. I have comprehensive experience and knowledge working with individuals 60 years and older.

Therapeutic Orientation and Approach

I work with adults who are dealing with depression, anxiety, adjustment disorder, relationship issues, life transitions, self-esteem issues, grief, bereavement and numerous other challenging situations. The therapeutic approaches that I use are mostly evidence-based and are designed around the specific needs of each individual. Some of the most commonly used treatment modalities are cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, person-centered therapy, gestalt therapy, existential therapy, mindfulness based cognitive therapy. Based on the clinical needs of individuals, I may even utilize an eclectic approach which involves a combination of the modalities referenced above. I have a wide-ranging knowledge about issues related to aging such as cognitive decline, loss of independence, low-income issues, physical and health deterioration. I utilize an existential approach in therapy with individuals dealing with meaninglessness, anxiety, freedom, choices, responsibility and end of life issues. I provide couples counseling to individuals dealing with marital conflicts or other relationships issues.

South Asian Clients
I provide culture-specific therapy to clients from Indian heritage. I am well informed about the challenges faced by first and second generation Asian Indians including challenges faced between these generations. I also speak fluent Hindi and Urdu to clients who experience language barriers in therapy.
