Kristen E. Bettencourt PsyD
I’m a licensed clinical psychologist based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, providing individual therapy to adults of all ages, and specializing in working with college students, graduate students, and other young adults. With a warm, down-to-earth, and supportive style, I help clients work through challenges such as depression, anxiety, OCD, life transitions, academic and career concerns, and creative blocks. My approach is client-centered and integrative, grounded in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
I received my doctorate in psychology from William James College. I completed clinical internships at Wellesley College and Tufts Medical Center, and received additional clinical training through a post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates.
I participate in ongoing OCD and ACT training as well as group and individual consultation with senior ACT trainers and OCD specialists.
