Alicia Janik, Psy.D.

Title: Psychology Resident (post-doctoral resident in clinical psychology); Prince William Family Counseling

I graduated in 2004 with a B.A. in Psychology and French from Villanova University.  While at Villanova I studied abroad for a semester in Aix-en-Provence, France through American University.  I completed my doctorate in clinical psychology (Psy.D.) and M.Ed. in Human Sexuality at Widener University in 2012 and I currently work as a clinical psychologist in Virginia.  I provide therapy and assessment services to a wide demographic including children, adolescents, adults, families and couples.  I would love to provide information to students interested in pursuing graduate work in psychology or the human service professions and share my experiences.

Kristin Salber- Black, Ph.D.

Title: Postdoctoral Psychology Fellow, Philadelphia VA Medical Center

Areas of Expertise/Interest: Health Psychology, Integrated Primary Care, Psycho-oncology, Veterans, PTSD, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Problem Solving Therapy

I'm an alum of interdisc, and graduated from Villanova in 2006 with a dual major in honors and psychology. I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology (Ph.D.) with a concentration in health psychology from Drexel University in 2015. I completed my predoctoral internship at  the Syracuse VA Medical Center, and I'm currently completing my postdoctoral training in integrated primary care at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center. I provide assessment and brief therapy for male and female Veterans of various eras focused on depression, anxiety, PTSD, insomnia, and adjustment to illness and other stressors. I would be more than happy to mentor Villanova students who are considering any type of career in psychology - especially if they'd like advice on navigating the graduate school application process!
