Anna Khaylis, Ph.D.
Registered Psychologist (CPBC #1986)
Core Faculty, Psy.D. Program

My clinical training and practice has focused on the assessment and treatment of trauma-related disorders, particularly in women, military members, and under-served populations. My research interests have centered on developing interventions for populations experiencing high rates of trauma-related stress, for example HIV-positive individuals with PTSD and military families. My work has taught me the importance of providing therapy to all those that need it. Life presents us with no shortage of struggles, and I firmly believe in helping individuals cultivate their inner resources and find meaning and vitality in their lives.

I bring my approach to teaching, focusing on student needs and strengths. I see learning as a collaborative process, and am enthusiastic about preparing students for clinical work in the “real world” and to helping them foster their interests and skills. I am excited to be part of the Psy.D. program at Adler’s Vancouver Campus, witnessing a growing number of students and faculty bring energy and dedication to the field.

Please email or call me 236.521.2496 if you have questions or would like more information about me.
