Christine Hérot, Ed.D. Licensed Psychologist Psychologue clinicienne Bilingue en français et en anglais
Hello and welcome to my website. I have had the privilege to provide psychotherapy to a wide range of clients for over 16 years and I currently offer individual therapy to adolescents, young adults, adults and the geriatric population. I also provide academic counseling, consultation, and workshops.
One of the most important goals in my practice is to foster a warm and genuine empathic environment where my clients can develop a sense of trust and well-being.
Overcoming anxiety, depression, PTSD and other forms of suffering takes time, patience and resilience. I am always in awe of my clients’ resolve and the strengths they bring to the therapy. Since each client comes with unique past and unique concerns, I believe it is essential that each session and therapeutic approach be tailored to the particular needs of each client. As an artist, I find creative development to be most fulfilling and I am deeply attuned to the challenges of expressing one's artistic self. As an athlete, I am profoundly aware of the impact of cognitive obstacles in motivation and performance.
I integrate a psycho-dynamic approach that focuses on childhood history and relational/emotional development with a Mindfulness-based cognitive-behavioral approach for clients with anxiety or eating difficulties. I am fully trained to provide EMDR treatment. My personal practice of Vipassana meditation and my certification in Mindfulness and Psychotherapy allow me to offer relaxation/meditation and breathing exercises as well as guided imagery which have helped my clients learn skills to manage sleep issues, anxiety and panic attacks.
A native of France, I am bilingual in French and in English and offer therapy in both languages. I work with many ex-patriates and international clients as they adjust to the US culture.
