Emily M. Curry, PsyD
I am a licensed clinical psychologist who has been practicing in the Pioneer Valley area for almost three years. I graduated from Marist College with a BA in psychology in 2013. I then pursued my doctorate at Immaculata University an APA accredited program in Pennsylvania. I earned my doctorate in 2019. I have experience with therapy and assessment in various settings. I have worked in university counseling centers, private practices, acute partial programs, and children behavioral health centers. I am a member of the American Psychological Association.
My assessment approach is collaborative and informative. I hold the client’s referral question in the forefront of my mind as I begin to investigate and learn about each client’s psychological profile. I focus on what the client finds as the most important concern and work to help each client find a way to make my results useful to them in school, work, relationships, and in their day-to-day life. I also make sure to attend to the various factors impacting their psychological functioning. I have extensive experience assessing ADHD in children, adolescents, and adults. I also have experience in psychoeducational testing, projective/personality, and neuropsychological testing.
I have worked with a very broad range of individuals. My primary area of focus is working with children and their families with presenting concerns varying from ADHD, academic stress, anxiety, depression, mood concerns, and relationship difficulties. I also have experience working with adolescents and emerging adults with varying presenting concerns. My approach focuses on the relationship between my clients and myself. I focus on being genuine and nonjudgmental. I utilize various techniques from different approaches including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, emotional focused therapy, and relational approaches. I value assessing and discussing the different contextual and cultural factors that impact each individual uniquely.
