Formerly Chief of Psychological Services at the Northern Virginia Training Center, she is a Diplomate of the International Academy of Behavioral Medicine and the American Board of Medical Psychotherapists.Trained during internship and residency in the inter-disciplinary treatment team approach, with a Ph.D. in Psychology from The George Washington University, Dr. Auerbach wanted to bring aboard a highly-skilled group of clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists and other allied healthcare specialists, so that patients could access mental health services of varying breadth and depth, all under one roof. Dr. Auerbach works with adolescent, adult and geriatric patients with problems that interfere with daily living including depression, anxiety, phobia, couples' relationships, marital issues, coping with chronic illness, substance abuse and sports performance enhancement, to name a few.
