Wendy Harris, PsyD
Core Faculty, MA in Clinical Psychology
Interim Director, Addiction and Recovery Specialization in Clinical Psychology, MA in Clinical Psychology
Dr. Harris is dedicated to preparing students to understand the complexities of addiction and to compassionately treat those who suffer through a multi-dimensional framework. Recognizing the necessity of comprehensive, integrated treatment, she trains students to consider the biological, psychological, and socio-cultural forces that seed addiction and impact recovery. Committed to bridging the gaps that exist between academia, clinical settings, and the Eastern-based practices of Kundalini Yoga and mindfulness meditation, she incorporates aspects of her personal practices into her daily interactions across settings. Her classes are academically rigorous, theory-based, experiential, and process oriented.
