Amardeep Singh Khahra, PhD
Deep completed his undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in Spanish and Biological Sciences from Marquette University. He earned his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Palo Alto University. Deep completed his clinical internship at Valley Oaks Health, a community mental health center in Lafayette, Indiana. From there, Deep worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Boston College in Boston Massachusetts. Working with diverse individuals across the lifespan has afforded Deep the opportunity to support children, adolescents, college-students, and adults in their intersecting identity formation.
Deep joined UWM’s University Counseling Services in August, 2021. His clinical and research interests include, but are not limited to: cultural diversity, identity formation, trauma (discrete, sexual, complex), anxiety, depression, and interpersonal relationships. Deep is proficient in several theoretical orientations, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance based therapy, feminist therapy, trauma-informed care, psychodynamic therapy and mindfulness. Thus, he is able to provide students support based on their individualized needs; however, Deep tends to utilize a relational-cultural and developmental framework given the prominence of unique identity and relationship challenges facing college students.
