Durriya Meer, Psy.D.

Associate Director, Psychology Internship Training and Staff Psychologist

Originally from Bangladesh, I identify as a first generation South Asian Muslim female. I completed my doctorate from Wright State University (OH) and worked at the University of Michigan Counseling and Psychological Services for 13 years before moving to Johns Hopkins in 2015. My passion lies in training and mentoring psychologists as they prepare to take on professional roles in a rich, complex and rapidly changing field. My clinical and outreach interests are working with students of color, violence against women, international students, bi-cultural identity development (especially conflicting identities such as being Muslim and gay), family of origin and relationship concerns. I have specialized interest in working with Muslim students, and Asian/Asian-American students, especially those from South Asia. I work from an integration of multicultural, feminist and psycho-dynamic theories. I am fortunate to be multilingual and am fluent in Hindi, Urdu, Bangla and Gujarati.

Outside of work, I love traveling, creating things from whatever materials I have on hand, movies, spending time with family and friends and watching crime shows!
