Dr. Anna Franklin earned her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and received her internship training at VA Puget Sound. She has been fortunate to train with the treatment developers to learn interventions for anxiety, OCD, and trauma-related disorders. She has received further training in working with adults and couples with mood disorders, difficulties with emotion dysregulation/self-harm, relationship distress, and coping with chronic illness in a variety of outpatient settings. A central emphasis of Anna's clinical training has been on working in women's health and with gender-expansive and LGBTQ+ individuals. Anna's research has focused on different ways that people respond to stress and threats, specifically around cultivating resilience and well-being in college students. Through this training, Anna has developed a strong foundation in the flexible and person-centered integration of science into practice.
What Dr. Franklin would like you to know about her:
I provide evidence-based treatments to adolescents and adults, particularly around navigating the transition into adulthood, individually and collaboratively with their families and support systems. I specialize in cognitive behavioral treatments, including Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and exposure-based interventions, to address disorders related to anxiety, stress, and trauma, as well as problems related to both emotional under- and over-control. I deeply value the relationship formed in therapy and aim to create a supportive and nonjudgmental environment using humor, authenticity, curiosity and an awareness of cultural contexts.
