Dr. Autumn Wiley-Hill works with adults (18+) on issues such as (but not limited to): anxiety, depression, perinatal distress, adjustment, loss, college issues, relationship struggles, academic concerns, self-esteem and self-criticism, and desire to make value-congruent changes in one’s life. She also supervises advanced Ph.D. students at the University of Arizona in the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy practicum. As a supervisor she has the deep pleasure of mentoring and bearing witness to the development of new therapists.
Autumn received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Arizona in Tucson. She completed her APA approved pre-doctoral internship at the Southern Arizona Psychology Internship Center, conducting assessments and training therapists in mindfulness-based therapy (ACT and Self-Compassion), while spending much of her time at the Strategic Alternative Learning Techniques (SALT) center working with college students.
She received her Bachelor’s degree in psychology, sociology and women’s studies from Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. She is originally from Long Island, and before pursuing her Ph.D. had a career doing social policy work in Washington D.C.
Autumn has experience with several psychological modalities, including experiential methods, cognitive behavioral therapy, third-wave mindfulness-based therapies, family systems therapies, and motivational interviewing. She takes a client-centered approach and aims to facilitate an empowering relationship with her patients. She has lots of training and experience dealing with self-criticism and a fabulous antidote: self-compassion.
