Dr. Chase is a Clinical Psychologist who specializes in working with adolescents, college-age students, young adults, and adults. She works with adolescents and college-age students struggling with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and problems with academic and social functioning. In this capacity, she provides individual psychotherapy aimed at furthering the development of self-identity, emotional regulation and coping skills, effectively navigating both the social and academic demands of school, and transitioning to college and beyond. To help ensure generalization of therapeutic gains to everyday life, adjunct services may include working with parents, and consultation with other relevant professionals.
Dr. Chase also provides psychotherapy for adults of all ages who may be struggling with chronic depression, anxiety, or the effects of trauma. Dr. Chase specializes in helping adult clients manage the demands often created by different, and sometimes conflicting, life roles, such as work, dating, marriage, parenthood, and relationships with friends or family members, as well as issues related to life stage transitions. She helps empower clients to clarify their own perspectives and pursue what is ultimately important to them and in their own best long-term interests. Emphasis is also placed on identifying strengths and developing or deepening competencies.
Dr. Chase also understands that our mental and emotional well-being can be impacted by numerous factors beyond our immediate control – be they medical, physiological, environmental, and situational in nature. Thus, where appropriate, and with her client’s consent, Dr. Chase values collaboration with other relevant individuals involved in her client’s welfare, including other therapists, physicians, psychiatrists, family members, and school officials.
