About

Dr. Chango-James specializes in the treatment of anxiety (OCD, GAD, Specific Phobias, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety, Trichotillomania, Excoriation), trauma and PTSD, insomnia, and chronic pain. Additionally, she is trained to work with couples and families experiencing relationship and communication challenges. She typically works with late adolescents and adults from a variety of backgrounds. Dr. Chango-James believes in the importance of providing empirically supported treatments that fit the individual needs of each patient and integrating evidence-based approaches and scientific research into her psychotherapy practice.
Dr. Chango-James was trained as a clinical scientist and has worked as a clinician on several NIH-funded treatment studies for anxiety and depression. She primarily uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), Habit Reversal Training (HRT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples.
Dr. Chango-James received her Ph.D. from the University of Virginia, completed her internship at the Baltimore VA Medical Center and postdoctoral fellowship at McLean Hospital-Harvard Medical School.
