Psychologist in Wilmington Delaware

Dr. Carol Graham Shekhar, Ph.D.

 

Carol Graham Shekhar PhD - psychologist in delawareI earned my Doctorate in Psychology from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.  During that time, I pursued additional training in Neuropsychology at Coatesville VA Medical Center in Coatesville, PA., where I developed an affinity for working with veterans.

My doctoral internship at the Dayton VA Medical Center in Dayton, Ohio, was focused on Neuropsychology, Geropsychology, and psychiatric inpatients.  My passion for working with older adults, end of life, and medical illnesses really began to flourish while working in that hospital. That passion led me back to Philadelphia to work for a few years in an urban nursing home as a therapist, and later as Director of Behavioral Health.

Ultimately, I decided to pursue advanced training in Geropsychology, and was privileged to be selected for a post-doctoral fellowship housed in the Geriatric Psychiatry Division of Long-Island Jewish Medical Center.

In 2005, after finishing my post-doctoral fellowship, I worked as a Consulting Psychologist in Wilmington Delaware nursing homes. My clients were in nursing homes for both short and long-term stays, and struggled with a broad range of challenges including depression, anxiety, and health-related matters.  In 2012, I expanded my practice to open my own office in Wilmington in the fall of 2012. I continue to do some program consulting.

In the early years of my career as a Master’s level therapist, I provided counseling and outreach services to women struggling with domestic violence, and pursued a special interest in diversity issues. These experiences continue to inform my practice.
