Dr. Joselyne Perry is a licensed psychologist with the Colorado Center for Assessment & Counseling (CCAC). Dr. Perry earned her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and has been a practicing psychologist since 2010. Dr. Perry began her work in the college counseling setting, where she focused on trauma informed treatment and specialized in anxiety disorders. In 2015 Dr. Perry moved to the island of Grenada, in the West Indies, for both a personal and professional change of pace. She began focusing on psychological evaluations and teaching at St. George’s University. While living in the Caribbean provided ample opportunities for scuba diving, snorkeling, and exploring the rainforest, the Colorado mountains called her home, and she has enjoyed working at the Colorado Center for Assessment and Counseling since then. Her professional focus covers a wide range of adult mental health concerns that require psychological evaluation, such as ADHD, autism, learning disorders, and complex mood and personality disorders. On the personal side, Dr. Perry is an avid gardener and trail runner. She enjoys exploring the Colorado backcountry with her husband, son, and oversized golden retriever.
