Dr. Jeanne Choe-Arrieta is a psychologist at Kendall Psychological Associates in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She specializes in anxiety, depression, academic challenges, mindfulness, and multicultural issues. She sees young adults (ages 18-24), college students, adults, parents, and couples.
Before private practice, Dr. Choe-Arrieta was a psychotherapist at Fordham University, where she worked with many international students struggling with the adjustment to a new environment and academics. She helps international and immigrant clients balance the values of their home of origin while adopting a new culture.
Dr. Choe-Arrieta emphasizes a collaborative environment with her clients with the underlying belief that each client is an expert on themselves. Through this self awareness, clients are an integral part of their own therapy, and direct their own progress. Dr. Choe-Arrieta utilizes Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Interpersonal Therapy, Mindfulness Practices, and Supportive Therapy to give her clients the best possible environment to succeed.
