ACT/CBS Background and Training: I am honored to be a part of this community, and in awe of its richness. It is important to me to give back. I have been using ACT with youth and adults for over 20 years, and am a peer-reviewed ACT Trainer. I was trained in ACT by Kelly Wilson during my doctoral studies at the University of Mississippi. I am on the Faculty of Harvard Medical School, where I founded the McLean OCD Institute for Children and Adolescents (OCDI Jr.). I am also an Research Associate Professor of Clinical Practice in the APA-Accredited Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program at Suffolk University, where I train practicum and graduate students in ACT/RFT. My research involves ACT-relevant processes in child anxiety, OCD and parenting, as well as treatment research with youth and parents. I am on the Board of the New England ACBS Chapter, where we offer free quarterly ACT/RFT trainings open to mental health practitioners and researchers. I am an active trainer and consultant, and have given numerous experiential workshops, seminars, and colloquia on ACT and ACT-related work nationally and internationally. Finally, I founded the New England Center for OCD and Anxiety (NECOA) in 2017, a clinic in Cambridge and Melrose Massachusetts, that provides evidence-based care for children, adolescents, and adults.
ACT/CBS Experience: 23 years
Additional Information: I have a private practice in the greater Boston area with offices in Cambridge, Melrose, Meath, Ireland, Los Angeles, and New York City, and I am available for ACT training and consultation in person or online through the New England Center for OCD and Anxiety (NECOA).
