Andrew Gentile received his PhD in clinical psychology from Hofstra University and completed his predoctoral residency at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital in New York City. Prior to that Andrew completed a two-year research fellowship at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden where his research focused on developing Internet-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy interventions for Body Dysmorphic Disorder delivered to an international patient population.
Dr. Gentile’s clinical practice is focused on the delivery of Cognitive Behavioral Therapies for adults for a wide range of clinical problems. In addition to working with depression and anxiety issues which are among the most common presenting concerns, he has extensive experience working with body image concerns as well as those suffering from chronic emotion dysregulation and self-harm. He has received specialized training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for a variety of diagnostic presentations. As such his focus goes beyond just symptom reduction. Instead, he works collaboratively with clients to help them build fuller, more meaningful lives that are in line with their own chosen values.
Dr. Gentile is a member of the College of Psychologists of Ontario, Ontario Psychological Association (OPA), and the Association of Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).
