Professional statement

Debaki Chakrabarti is a Clinical Psychologist providing teletherapy to adults across the lifespan who are seeking to deepen their self-understanding. With specialized training in addiction and trauma, she offers concrete tools to help clients manage their emotions, finding alternative ways to self-soothe and cope with overwhelming situations. Dr. Chakrabarti is also keenly attuned to the important role social identities play in shaping individual experience, and she welcomes clients from all cultural backgrounds.

Dr. Chakrabarti's approach is trauma-informed, skills-based, and tailored to each client's healing journey. She forms a treatment plan in collaboration with her clients, identifying goals upfront and leveraging existing strengths to tap into their inner resilience. For clients seeking to focus specifically on trauma, Dr. Chakrabarti offers Prolonged Exposure, a gradual process that first establishes safety in the therapeutic relationship, equips clients with grounding and relaxation skills, and moves at each individual's pace to reprocess difficult experiences, releasing them of their power.

Dr. Chakrabarti takes a mindful approach, welcoming clients in their totality, and drawing from evidence-based modalities including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). While clients often come in seeking support around one specific challenge, such as stress management, depression, loneliness, or grief, Dr. Chakrabarti makes space for the wholeness of each individual, helping them to improve interpersonal skills and develop more meaningful relationships.

Outside of private practice, Dr. Chakrabarti works at the Center for Motivation and Change, a treatment center focused on addiction and compulsive behaviors. She received her PhD from Columbia University.
