Dr. Woodrich completed her predoctoral internship at the Battle Creek VA Medical Center in Michigan, with an emphasis in providing evidence-based practices for anxiety, mood, trauma, and substance use disorders. She then went on to acquire specialty training in treating PTSD and trauma during a postdoctoral fellowship at the VA Pacific Islands Health Care System in Honolulu, Hawaii. Dr. Woodrich has also received specialty training in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure (PE) Therapy for PTSD. Additionally, she has training in Cognitive Behavioral Conjoint Therapy for PTSD, a couples-based approach that harnesses the power of relationships to target trauma-related symptoms. Following completion of her postdoctoral fellowship, Dr. Woodrich was hired as a staff psychologist at the Center for Traumatic Stress at the Salem VA Medical Center in Virginia, where she provided a range of services to veterans with PTSD, borderline personality disorder, and trauma-related symptoms.
Dr. Woodrich also has training and experience with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

Dr. Woodrich approaches therapy as a collaborative partner in the change process. She has extensive training in exposure and mindfulness-based treatments and promotes a balance between acceptance and change-based strategies in her work with clients. She values diversity and this has been reflected in research and program development efforts throughout her career. She has also been involved in research examining transdiagnostic treatments, which allow clients to address multiple disorders with a unified approach. This has included efficacy research for Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and the Unified Protocol.
