About Me

Education and Training

I completed my bachelor’s degree in comparative literature at Brown University. I went on to earn my doctorate in clinical psychology at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, where my clinical training included supervision and experience in cognitive-behavioral therapy approaches. In graduate school, I conducted research concerning the causes of depressive and anxiety disorders. I completed a pre-doctoral internship at University of Texas – Health Science Center at Houston, where I obtained supervised experience in an anxiety specialty clinic. I went on to complete my post-doctoral fellowship in the Mood and Anxiety Program at Emory University School of Medicine, where I later served as staff psychologist. There, I served as a clinician on federally and industry funded clinical studies to determine the effectiveness of various treatments for mood and anxiety disorders.
