Professional statement

Dr. Jolie Weingeroff is a Clinical Psychologist at PVD Psychological Associates in Providence, RI. She has advanced training in evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness Approaches for adults and college students. Her areas of specialization include: anxiety, eating disorders, working with college and graduate students and others in academia, perfectionism, self esteem, and relationship difficulties. She also provides LGBTQIA Affirming and Gender Affirming Therapy.

As a Clinical Psychologist with extensive training and years of experience in academic and research settings, Dr. Weingeroff has a particular interest in working with graduate students, fellows, faculty, and others working in academia or academic medical settings. Dr. Weingeroff enjoys helping these clients navigate the unique stressors and challenges associated with being part of this culture. Graduate school, fellowships, and residency are critical times in identity development and can be extraordinarily demanding. These positions often lead to an increase in anxiety, perfectionism, imposter syndrome, and over-identifying with one’s achievements or career at the expense of having a stable sense of self worth. Faculty encounter similar challenges with work-life balance, burn out, departmental politics, and publishing pressure. Dr. Weingeroff is familiar with these issues from her own experience as a student, trainee, and researcher, as well as her years of treating students and faculty members.

Dr. Weingeroff ultimately wants her clients to increase their confidence in their ability to handle difficult situations and feel empowered to live authentically and in line with their personal values and goals. In addition to achieving specific goals and making changes, Dr. Weingeroff would like her clients to better understand the connection between early experiences and current difficulties. She utilizes her specialized training in evidence-based therapies and her collaborative style to help clients change thought patterns and behaviors, and develop more helpful ways to manage their emotions. She meets clients where they are and maintains an open dialogue with them to make sure they feel they are making progress in therapy.


Message to clients

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the foundation of treatment. As such, I maintain a validating environment to explore and develop a shared understanding of what brings my clients to therapy and how we can work together to accomplish specific goals and develop insight.

I frequently work with my clients to develop skills to manage their emotions, improve self-esteem, and establish deeper, more meaningful relationships. My style is direct, active, and flexible, with a focus on what works for each individual client. My clients would describe me as authentic and able to challenge them in a respectful and caring manner. My hope is for each client I work with to find and express their true selves.

I appreciate how challenging the process of change can be and have a great deal of respect for anyone seeking treatment. It is a privilege to accompany my clients as they develop a greater sense of fulfillment in life and more confidence in their ability to manage challenges. I look forward to hearing from you so we can begin this important process together!
