Hello, my name is Dr. Anna Scully. I have a Ph.D. in Psychology and Neuroscience and have done considerable research on the effects of stress and other experiences on the brain and behavior, before deciding to apply my knowledge to helping people as a clinical psychologist.

I’m excited to get to know you better! In the meantime, here’s a little about me, and my professional experience and training.

You’ve already come ...
