Professional statement

Dr. Aida Cajdric-Vrhovac is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with over 10 years of experience located in Hanover, MA. Dr. Cajdric-Vrhovac works with young adults and adults around mental health challenges from trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and addiction. Many of Dr. Cajdric-Vrhovac’s clients find it difficult to regulate their emotions, excessively feeling intense shame, worry, and self-doubt.

Dr. Cajdric-Vrhovac practices Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), three thought-based therapy approaches that help clients identify and intervene in negative or harmful thought patterns that can lead to distress. She also incorporates therapy approaches like Seeking Safety, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Motivational Interviewing into her sessions, giving clients a foundation upon which they can base their decisions or instigate healthy change.

Dr. Cajdric-Vrhovac earned a PhD from Saint Louis University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the VA Boston Healthcare system. Her goal as a therapist is to provide clients with a space where they feel safe and heard. Her sessions are interactive and nonjudgmental, leaving clients to feel that they are in control of their emotions and able to make healthy decisions for themselves.
