Dr. Shiva Rezvan obtained her doctorate in Counseling Psychology from the University of Isfahan, Iran, in 2011. Shortly after graduation, she immigrated to the United States and completed her postdoctoral psychology residency at Children’s Service Center in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. With the invaluable help of her late mentor at Yale University (New Haven, Connecticut), she undertook the process of becoming a licensed psychologist.
Dr. Rezvan has conducted psychotherapy for more than 20 years. At present, she works with adults to address anxiety and mood disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, and interpersonal issues. Although her primary treatment approach is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), she integrates other approaches such as Interpersonal Therapy, Attachment-Based Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Metacognitive Therapy. In addition, she previously worked with children and she is certified in basic Kazdin Parent Management Training (Yale Parenting Center, New Haven, Connecticut). She is familiar with both individualistic and collectivist perspectives, and she prioritizes becoming acquainted with the unique culture of each client with whom she has the honor of working and growing. She is fluent in both English and Farsi (Persian).
Beyond being a therapist, Dr. Rezvan is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Albertus Magnus College (New Haven, Connecticut) and a member of the research community at Yale University. She is highly interested in such clinical areas as unconscious goals, motivations, implicit biases, and the impact of each of those factors on human behavior and social justice. She is also involved in research to identify strategies for targeting behaviors in therapy using less cognitive effort. She has published and presented her academic work in peer-reviewed journal articles and poster sessions at national and international conferences.
Dr. Rezvan is licensed in Connecticut. She joined CNS in 2018.
