Meet Dr. Litwin
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a passion for helping people connect to their values in order to reduce suffering. I believe that by combining compassion and commitment, together we can overcome the obstacles that are creating difficulties in your life. Drawing from evidence-based treatment, I teach skills to identify and change unhelpful patterns. I believe that growth comes from connecting to your values.
I live in Madison, Connecticut with my husband and two children. I love baking, watching HGTV renovation shows, and reading historical fiction.
Experience & Expertise
I have expertise in several evidence-based treatments, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based treatments, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I have experience working with people of all ages.
In addition to my work in private practice at Shoreline Psychological, LLC, I have served as a therapist at college counseling centers and community mental health clinics, and as an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry in the Yale Department of Psychiatry in New Haven, Connecticut. I have supervised several Yale doctoral students and have lectured across Connecticut on topics such as anxiety in the medical setting, stress management, and mindful parenting. I have also presented on subjects including risk assessment and management and DBT to mental health and medical professionals at Yale and Middlesex Hospitals.
I received my undergraduate degree from McGill University and Doctorate in clinical psychology from La Salle University. I completed my pre-doctoral clinical internship at Yale University School of Medicine and post-doctoral clinical internship at CBT Westport, LLC.
