Caitlin Roache, PhD
Dr. Caitlin Roache, a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, is the founder of Reid Psychology Group, LLC. She received her PhD and Masters in Clinical Psychology from Loyola University Chicago and completed an internship and post-doctoral fellowship in Clinical Psychology at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth Medical School, with specialized training in trauma treatment at the National Center for PTSD. Additionally, she has extensive training and experience in working with individuals and couples managing the physical and emotional stressors of infertility. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Dartmouth College. Additionally, she is an active member of the American Psychological Association.
Dr. Roache practices from an integrative approach to therapy, grounded in psychodynamic theory, and pulls from skills-based and solution-focused techniques to help provide more immediate relief from symptoms. She pays particular attention to what is meaningful in each client's life story and collaborates with her clients to identify goals for their work together. Dr. Roache believes that, while it is important to minimize daily struggles that get in the way of being fully present in one's life and relationships, healing comes from exploring how our past experiences have affected the ways in which we interpret and interact with our world. By exploring underlying roots to emotional distress, and identifying unmet needs you are able to nurture more connected relationships, uncover thought and behavioral patterns that interfere with happiness, master effective coping skills, and experience overall symptom reduction. She values fostering meaningful relationships in therapy and creates a safe space for clients to share their experiences free from judgment in order to cultivate empowering insights that allow for better understanding of how past experiences inform current beliefs about themselves and their position in the world. It is through this insight and awareness clients can move towards desired change.
Dr. Roache is trained in Interpersonal Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and values the benefit of integrating these approaches into her insight-oriented work to offer coping skills and alternative ways of interacting with one's thoughts and emotions. While Dr. Roache helps people with many psychological and behavioral difficulties, including depression and anxiety, her primary areas of interest are the treatment of relational difficulties for individuals and couples, infertility and perinatal loss, trauma, and personality disorders. Dr. Roache is trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, an evidence-based intervention proven effective in treating both chronic and single-incident trauma, and couples therapy.
Dr. Roache has worked with individuals, couples, adolescents, college students, and families in a variety of settings including college counseling centers, medical settings, community mental health, and private practice. In her current practice, Dr. Roache works with adults and late adolescents (ages 16+) in individual, couples/family, and group formats.
