About

Hello, my name is Nisha Chitkara, Ph.D. I have my doctorate in Clinical and School Psychology. I am the Director of Educational Development at New Beginnings Psychology. Through my role at New Beginnings I am able to do a variety of things including individual and group therapy. The types of treatment I use with patients are evidence-based, meaning they have been shown in clinical studies to be effective. These include cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, exposure and response prevention, mindfulness based stress reduction, interpersonal social rhythms therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and motivational interviewing.
I treat children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of difficulties including anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and life stressors. In addition to individual therapy, I am currently running DBT groups for adults and social anxiety groups for adolescents. Check out my Facebook page: Dr. Nisha Chitkara.
Our staff is friendly, helpful, and supportive. I feel honored and proud to be part of the New Beginnings family. As a psychologist working there, I am able to use my training and experience to tailor each individuals treatment so that it works best for them in their life.
