Professional statement

Dr. Calvin Fitch is a Clinical/Health psychologist who specializes in working with clients with social/performance anxiety. His typical clients are adult professionals who don't feel at their best in social and/or performance situations and are seeking help to improve their personal or professional lives. For many of his clients, social anxiety may be rooted in self-esteem issues resulting from depression, identity-based discrimination, chronic illness, trauma, or other concerns. Dr. Fitch works collaboratively with his clients to tailor treatment to fit their unique needs.

Dr. Fitch's uses Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help people become aware of and change unbalanced/unhelpful thinking patterns. He is, however, keenly aware of the limitations of this approach (e.g., it may lead to clients feeling bad about themselves for thinking so negatively). Therefore, he contextualizes his approach within the multiple spheres of influence that may influence a person's thinking (e.g., influence of friends/family, community and neighborhood influences, and societal messages) and integrates other evidence-based approaches as appropriate.

In sessions, Dr. Fitch is compassionate, supportive, and appropriately challenging. He asks clients where they would like to be in the next 3 months and works together with them to create a specific and realistic plan to help them get there. His clients often feel empowered to push themselves knowing that even if things don't go as expected, they have a warm environment in which they can discuss things openly.

Dr. Fitch graduated from the University of Miami with a PhD in Clinical Psychology and is currently in the Department of Behavioral Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School. He sees clients for online appointments via a secure telehealth platform offering them the convenience of receiving quality therapy services from the convenience of their home or office.


Message to clients

Many of us possess some part of our identity or lived experience that is not fully embraced by the world. We might begin to internalize and pick up negative messages about ourselves that we've learned from peers, our immediate community, and/or society as a whole. Each one of these negative messages is like a stone added to a backpack. I am here to help you become aware that many of these stones are not yours to carry and help you begin to rid yourself of that extra weight. I aim to empower you with the skills to turn down the volume on negative thinking and the confidence to show up and be authentically YOU.
