Visiting Fellow

Camilo Ortiz, PhD, is a fellow with the Flourishing in Action project at the Archbridge Institute’s Human Flourishing Lab. Dr. Ortiz is also an associate professor and director of clinical training in the clinical psychology doctoral program at Long Island University-Post.

Dr. Ortiz’s latest work involves developing an innovative new treatment for child anxiety that focuses on strengthening resilience and self-efficacy by vastly increasingly child independence. During his fellowship, he plans to refine his treatment manual to spread this exciting intervention to more mental health providers.
