Dr. Anna Sheedy is a post-doctoral resident at the Center for Integrated Behavioral Health beginning in August 2017 under the supervision of Dr. Roger K. McFillin, Psy.D., ABPP. She earned her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from La Salle University and completed her pre-doctoral internship training at Southern Illinois University’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS).
Dr. Sheedy has experience in a range of evidence based treatments, drawing primarily from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Third-Wave Behavioral approaches. While she has had experience treating a wide range of psychological disorders, she has a particular interest in the treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Eating Disorders. On internship, Dr. Sheedy received specialized experience in Dialectical-Behavior Therapy, which has become her true passion.
In the therapy room, you can expect Dr. Sheedy to be warm, genuine, and enthusiastic. She enjoys building collaborative working relationships with her clients and believes in bringing humor into the room. While relying heavily on evidence based practice to understand and treat her clients, she also strives to understand context and culture when developing a treatment plan. Dr. Sheedy ultimately aims to help clients overcome barriers to building meaningful lives in line with their values.
