Gabby is a clinical psychologist and National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)-funded research fellow at Weill Institute for Neuroscience, Department of Psychiatry, UCSF. She received her PhD in clinical psychology from Palo Alto University. Her doctoral research focused on the clinical applications of psilocybin-assisted therapy and mindful self-compassion-based interventions to treat mood, substance use, and trauma-based disorders. Gabby's work draws on quantitative and qualitative methodologies to explore underlying psychological and neurobiological mechanisms responsible for catalyzing behavioral changes, including emotion regulation, meta-awareness, and pro sociality. Gabby's current research is focused on the use of opioid replacement therapies to treat opioid use disorder and chronic pain. She is also exploring the use of behavioral paradigms to help prevent relapse and restructure dysregulated motivational reward systems involved in addiction.
