TJ Preston is a fourth-year doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program at Auburn University. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Sociology at Florida State University, as well as a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at Auburn University. Throughout this time, he has been involved in research examining reward processing and threat reactivity via neurophysiological (EEG) and physiological (EMG) methodologies in people who regularly use cannabis.

During his time as a therapist at the Auburn University Psychological Services Center, Preston has provided evidence-based services (e.g., cognitive behavior therapy; CBT) for presenting concerns including anxiety, depression, substance use problems, and symptoms of PTSD to individuals from a variety of backgrounds. In addition to CBT, he incorporates skills from acceptance and commitment therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, and problem-solving therapy. He approaches clinical work with compassion and aims to take a collaborative and strengths-based approach to help clients achieve their goals.

Preston is located in the Auburn University Psychological Services Center (AUPSC) in Cary Hall and is available Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays (by appointment). He also provides telehealth services to students outside of the Auburn/Opelika area but still within Alabama (i.e., students located in Mobile).
