I received my bachelor’s degree summa cum laude from Northwestern University and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Vanderbilt University. I completed a predoctoral internship at the University of Chicago Medical Center and a postdoctoral fellowship at the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University.
During my training, I focused on evidence-based assessment and treatment (e.g., CBT) for a wide range of psychological disorders with an emphasis on eating, anxiety and mood disorders. Additionally, I have held professional positions at McLean Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where I gained additional experience in research addressing issues related to women’s mental and physical health.
In addition to my private practice, I currently have appointments as Clinical Teaching Faculty in the Eating Disorders Clinical and Research Program (EDCRP) at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and as part-time Lecturer on Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. As part of the EDCRP at MGH, I provide weekly supervision for trainees and regularly collaborate with colleagues within this program. Prior to my appointment at MGH, I was affiliated with Brigham and Women’s Hospital as a consultant on issues related to mental health assessments for the Women’s Hormones and Aging Research Program (WHARP) in the Department of Psychiatry.
