About Dr. Quinn
Dr. Quinn has been in practice since 2004. She works with adults who are experiencing difficulties in a variety of areas including ADHD/ADD, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, interpersonal relationships, and life transitions and adjustments. She works with adults using primarily Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), while also integrating interpersonal techniques. This approach helps individuals identify the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are causing them distress, and understand how those aspects are affecting how they view themselves, their environment, including those people around them, and their future.
Dr. Quinn conducts comprehensive psychological evaluations to help clarify diagnostic questions and gain a better understanding of how individuals view themselves and how their symptoms are affecting their life in various ways such as at home and work, as well as socially. She also conducts ADHD/ADD testing and psychoeducational testing to assess for learning disabilities. The battery of tests that Dr. Quinn incorporates into her evaluations can also be used to request academic and testing accommodations for college students as well as those individuals who are planning to sit for standardized tests (e.g., GREs, LSAT, MCAT). In addition, she performs evaluations for potential surrogates/gestational carriers and intended parents.
Dr. Quinn practices with the philosophy that therapy is a collaborative relationship between the therapist and the individual. In this relationship, Dr. Quinn will provide a safe and supportive place for you to explore and express your thoughts and emotional difficulties. In addition, Dr. Quinn will work with you to establish a treatment plan, which includes making appropriate treatment recommendations, discussing expectations of therapy, and setting therapeutic goals. Through this relationship, you will work towards developing effective coping and problem solving strategies.
