Shreya Jagtap

MA, Doctoral Candidate

Shreya Jagtap is a Ph.D candidate in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Toronto, Scarborough. She has completed a breadth of clinical training in psychological treatment (e.g., therapy) and assessment through her work at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences; Sunnybrook Health Care Sciences Centre, Frederick Thompson Anxiety Disorders Centre; and the University of Toronto Health & Wellness Centre.

Shreya has worked with adults and older teens experiencing a wide range of difficulties, including obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD), psychosis, depression, anxiety, self-harm, difficulties managing emotion, as well as substance use.

At FTPS, Shreya focuses on supporting individuals with OCD, psychosis, and mood/anxiety concerns. Shreya works with a variety of treatment interventions and will use a trauma informed approach as needed. Her focus in treatment includes cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). She also offers Inference-Based Cognitive Therapy (I-CBT) as an alternative and complementary approach to Exposure with Response Prevention. She always works with the individual to ensure a personalized treatment plan that best matches the presenting issues.

At Sunnybrook Healthcare Sciences Centre, Shreya used these treatment interventions with individuals with OCD specifically. This involved CBT interventions, including exposure and response prevention (ERP) to help individuals overcome their obsessive thoughts and compulsions related to germs, insects/pests, religion, perfectionism, and uncertainty. Additionally, Shreya also has focused a lot of her treatment working with individuals with mental obsessions/rituals and compulsions. Specifically, she is always very interested in helping people who experience harm and/or sexual-based intrusive thoughts.

Shreya strives to maintain a flexible, collaborative, and non-judgemental working relationship with her clients. She considers the people that she works with to be the experts on their own lived experience, and above all endeavors to create a safe space for clients, where they feel comfortable sharing their experiences.
