Anthony Hitch, PhD


Anthony Hitch,



Therapy is a unique space and relationship in which your health, wellbeing, and happiness are the primary focus. 

I believe our work together can help you reconnect with the core aspects of yourself and take inventory of how your life experiences have shaped you. In doing so, you can develop a sense of freedom to relate these experiences in a way that promotes growth and, ultimately, take actions that lead to a more fulfilling and meaningful life. As a therapist, I strive to create a safe, supportive, and compassionate environment to empower you to face challenges and achieve personal growth.

I have had the opportunity to work with adults across diverse backgrounds of age, race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, economic status, and religion. As a Black, gay, cisgender man, I have found my work with racial/ethnic minoritized individuals, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and people from other marginalized communities particularly rewarding. 

I have an integrative approach to using evidence-based treatments that is informed by cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), meaning I help the people with whom I work to understand and examine the connections between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to make meaningful change. Acknowledging and honoring that each individual’s needs are shaped by several factors, including social status, culture, and life stage, I frequently draw upon Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to promote emotional and psychological flexibility in a way that is aligned with my clients concerns and goals. Moreover, I hold a compassionate, collaborative, strengths-based stance that values the therapeutic relationship, drawing heavily from both person-centered approaches and feminist theory.

In addition to my clinical work at Tandem Psychology, I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Northwestern University’s Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing in the Feinberg School of Medicine. My research focuses on identifying and examining sources of both minority stress and resilience among BIPOC members of the LGBTQ+ community to inform interventions to improve mental health, sexual health, and substance use outcomes. While completing my doctoral training at the University of Cincinnati, I obtained a Mental Health and Substance Use Services Fellowship through the American Psychological Association in which I received specialty training in multicultural clinical practice. In addition, I completed my predoctoral clinical internship at Brown University’s Internship Training Program where I obtained intensive training in using Cognitive Processing Therapy to treat PTSD at the Providence VA Medical Center.
