Greg is a research associate with the Cognitive Bias Modification (CBM) team at the OCD Center and the FOCUS Program. Greg conducts screening assessments for individuals with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and depression. He is also a fourth year doctoral student at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) in the Anxiety Disorders Laboratory. Greg completed his master’s degree in clinical psychology at UWM in the spring of 2016.
Originally from New Rochelle, NY, Greg attended St. Lawrence University for his undergrad degree where he studied psychology and philosophy. He has specific interests in OCD and body-focused repetitive behaviors such as trichotillomania and skin-picking disorder. Greg has a specific focus on the underlying cognitive deficits in OCD such as response inhibition, as well as in developing novel treatments that incorporate cognitive and neurobiological science.
“I have been incredibly fortunate to get involved with the CBM team at Rogers,” says Greg. “I believe in the scientist-practitioner model of training and practice, whichÂ states that effective treatment needs to incorporate the latest research, and that research needs to inform clinical practice. My work with the CBM team has allowed me to gain valuable experience in cutting-edge research for OCD, while also delivering the best quality care to those who need it most.”
