Postdoctoral Fellow

Anxiety Center

BIOGRAPHY

Ashleigh Harvey is a postdoctoral fellow in the Anxiety Center at EBTCS. She provides evidence-based treatment for a wide range of concerns, including obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs), hoarding disorder, tics, panic disorder, major depressive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). She works to make treatment a collaborative experience, recognizing that a client’s primary presenting concerns do not exist in a vacuum, taking time to get to know the whole person rather than just their diagnosis.

Ashleigh completed her undergraduate degree with a psychology major and music minor at the College of William and Mary. She then worked as a lab manager and research coordinator on various anxiety and OCD-related studies at Florida State University. Ashleigh completed her masters and doctoral degrees in clinical psychology in the Anxiety Disorders Lab at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. Her graduate research focused on the relationship between response inhibition and OCRDs, with interest in how underlying cognitive vulnerabilities may contribute to, exacerbate, or maintain clinical symptoms.

During her graduate training, Ashleigh pursued both depth and breadth of clinical experiences, completing community placements with the residential adult OCD and anxiety program at Rogers Behavioral Health, the primary care-mental health integration rotation at the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center, and comprehensive dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) at the Center for Behavioral Medicine (a Linehan-certified program). She completed her predoctoral clinical internship in the obsessive-compulsive and related disorders (OCRDs) track at Baylor College of Medicine.

Ashleigh has extensive training in providing exposure and response prevention (ERP) for OCD, as well as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) more broadly for anxiety and mood disorders. She is also trained in behavioral activation (BA) for depression, DBT for emotion dysregulation, habit reversal training (HRT) for BFRBs, comprehensive behavioral intervention (CBIT) for tics, and cognitive processing therapy (CPT) and prolonged exposure (PE) for PTSD. She is committed to ongoing education as a clinician, working to stay informed of new developments in empirically-supported interventions in order to provide her clients with the best possible care.

Ashleigh is a member of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT) and the International Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Foundation (IOCDF).
