Casey Hearing. Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellow

Background

Casey Hearing, Ph.D. (Postdoctoral Fellow) graduated with her Doctorate in Clinical/Community Psychology from George Washington University. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at Milton Hershey School, an internationally recognized private school where students from kindergarten through 12th grade, all coming from underserved populations, live on campus. There she provided individual and group cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) for the various mood and anxiety disorders the students presented with. During Casey’s clinical externships at Kennedy Krieger’s Center for Family and Traumatic Stress and Georgetown’s Center for Wellbeing in School Environments she received training in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and various other manualized cognitive behavioral interventions such as Resilience Builders and BounceBack. Casey recognizes the importance of working closely with parents and caregivers, school teams, and other health providers to promote the best social, emotional, and academic outcomes in the children and adolescents with whom she works. She also believes in the power of physical exercise toward promoting positive mental health and has published research on this topic. Casey’s approach to treatment is informed by her belief in equity, positive regard, and valued living. She utilizes developmental and evidence-based treatments grounded in cognitive behavioral therapy and informed by attachment theory. Her clinical interests include anxiety disorders including obsessive compulsive disorders and phobias, mood disorders, trauma, and oppositional behaviors. She particularly enjoys working with children and younger adolescents. Dr. Hearing is licensed as a Psychology Associate in Washington, D.C. and Maryland. She enjoys baking, gardening, and spending time with her dog.
