    Collapse Overview
    Gabby is a clinical psychologist researcher and psychotherapist. She is currently a National Institute on Drug Abuse T32 Research Fellow in Substance Use Disorders Treatment and Services Research at UCSF. Her research explores transdiagnostic psychological mechanisms (e.g., emotion regulation, metacognition, self-transcendence) underlying the therapeutic outcomes in treatments of mood, anxiety and substance use disorders. She also conducts qualitative research on psychotherapy-related change processes. At UCSF, Gabby is conducting mechanistic research aimed at improving treatment strategies for opioid use disorder and chronic pain, with a focus on understanding approach-avoidance tendencies involved in the etiology of these co-occurring disorders. She is also exploring the use of behavioral paradigms (delay discounting), cognitive training (approach bias modification) and therapeutic interventions, including psilocybin-assisted and mindfulness-based therapies, to help prevent relapse and restore dysregulated reward systems involved in addiction.
