Dr. Lianne Philhower (Psy.D., M.P.H.) is an Associate Professor and licensed clinical psychologist, and she has a diverse professional background that includes working in public health environments, outpatient community mental health programs, private practice, school consultation, and education. She utilizes a developmentally-informed, Cognitive Behavioral perspective that is highly compatible with HSPP’s aim to educate and train students employing a practitioner-scholar model. She understands that the students at HSPP are developing in their professional lives and come to the program with a diverse background and a diversity of experiences. Her knowledge, experience, and ability to integrate creativity with structure comes through in the way she teaches her courses and supports students individually. The courses she teaches regularly (i.e., CBT, Ethics, Intervention Seminar) and the electives she offers (i.e., Child Therapy, Developmental Psychopathology, Self-Care for Therapists) are all directly informed by her education, training, and professional experience. She is able to bring in realistic case examples and professional situations into her teaching, and utilize instructional scaffolding techniques that allow her students to grow clinically, ethically, and professionally. As a scholar, Dr. Philhower has provided community trainings, consultation, and presentations, and has supported the research projects of countless students. She has continued her own education and scholarship by pursuing a Ph.D. in Integrative Medicine.
