Dr. Bridget Wieckowski

Psychologist
dr. Bridget Wieckowski, Psy.D.

I earned a Doctorate of Psychology (Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology from an APA-accredited graduate program at the Wright Institute in Berkeley, CA as well as a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of California in Davis. I completed my pre-doctoral internship at the Ann Martin Center and my post-doctoral residency at Kaiser Permanente in Pleasanton.

I have worked with children, teens, young adults, and families over the past five years in a variety of settings including community mental health clinics, schools, clients’ homes, and hospitals. I am able to provide both short- and long-term services, integrating relational and person-focused care with evidence-based treatments to meet the needs of my clients. My therapy style is to intentionally create a safe and genuine space for clients to work towards living a life that feels satisfying and manageable. I specialize in working with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, life stress, trauma/PTSD, behavioral challenges, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and interpersonal difficulties.

In addition to being a therapist, I have presented at conferences, such as the International Society for Autism Research in 2019, and provided child and adult psychodiagnostic assessments. I am skilled in assessing for personality, attentional, and cognitive concerns. My assessment style is collaborative, transparent, and informative for short- and long-term planning.
