Keneisha Sinclair-McBride | Professional History
My interest in psychology developed during adolescence, when I realized that my commitment to helping children and my curiosity about how the mind works could be combined into a career. As an undergraduate at Yale University, I began to pursue this career goal in earnest through coursework, community service, and collaboration on research projects focused on risk factors for adolescent depression. During graduate school, I conducted research on depression and comorbid conditions with a special focus on how bullying and eating-related problems can put children and adolescents at risk for the development of depression. At the same time, I gained clinical experience in a wide variety of settings focused on evidence-based treatment for children, adolescents, and families. During internship at Boston Children's Hospital, and as a fellow at Boston Medical Center and Boston Children’s Hospital, I further honed my clinical, research, and program development skills treating children and adolescents with psychiatric and medical illnesses in diverse settings. Now as a staff psychologist, I provide evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents with depression, anxiety, and comorbid conditions while participating in teaching, training, and research projects in these areas.
