Roxanna Wolfe, BSN, MEd, PsyD.

Licensed Psychologist

Roxanna WolfeBefore moving to Bethesda, I worked in Community Health and Community Mental Health.

In 1971, I graduated from the School of Nursing at Jefferson Medical College, and enjoyed working in a variety of care settings.  Later, while working in ambulatory care at the University of New Hampshire, I began to transition to counseling psychology.   I worked in a Community Mental Health Center after completing my Psychology Master’s degree at the University of New Hampshire.  

In 1989, I received my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (PsyD) from Antioch University New England in Keene, N.H.  Following my Internship in Child & Adolescent psychology and neuropsychology at Sweetser-Children’s in Saco, Maine, I completed a Psychology Residency at Benton County Mental Health in Corvallis, Oregon, where I remained as staff Psychologist for 8 years.  At BCMH, I established trauma treatment programs for children and adults.

My focus on the psychological impact of trauma began while I was working at UNH.  The psychology and treatment of trauma and dissociation has been the core of my clinical practice and volunteer service for more than 30 years.

In addition to psychotherapy, I have a strong background in psychological and neuropsychological testing.

As a trauma and dissociative disorders specialist, my work with patients is to learn to manage the impact of the past and successfully move into their future. Hypnosis and EMDR are two of the therapies that I regularly employ in treatment.

I am honored to be a Fellow in the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISST-D), where I have been awarded the Advanced Certificate in Complex Trauma and Dissociation.  As an Approved Consultant, I am authorized to provide hypnotherapy and consultation by the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH).

I am also a member of the American Psychological Association and its Trauma Psychology Division, and am a Fellow in the Maryland Psychological Association.

From 2012 to 2016, I was a member of the Board of Trustees for Antioch University New England.

For more than 20 years, I have been a clinician volunteer and member of Physician’s for Human Rights.  I work with PHR and a legal team to provide forensic evaluations for refugees from around the world.  As a therapist, I volunteer with Maryland’s Pro Bono Counseling Project.  My asylum & human rights activities include being an Adjunct Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center (since 2002).


I was granted Authority to Practice Interjurisdictional Telepsychology (APIT) by the PSYPACT Commission APIT July 13, 2021; Mobility/E.Passport number: 8578. PSYPACT is an interstate compact which offers a voluntary expedited pathway for practice to qualified psychologists who wish to practice in multiple states. PSYPACT is designed to facilitate the practice of telepsychology and the temporary in-person, face-to-face practice of psychology across state boundaries. In order to practice telepsychology in PSYPACT states, psychologists licensed in PSYPACT states only, can apply to the PSYPACT Commission for an Authority to Practice Interjurisdictional Telepsychology (APIT). In order to conduct temporary practice in PSYPACT states, psychologists licensed in PSYPACT states only can apply to the PSYPACT Commission for a Temporary Authorization to Practice (TAP). The PSYPACT Commission is the governing body of PSYPACT and is comprised of one representative from each PSYPACT state.
