Carrie Potter received her master's degree in psychology from Temple University, where she is currently a fourth year doctoral candidate in the clinical psychology program. Carrie's research and clinical interests center on the connection between anxiety disorders and chronic medical conditions. She's particularly interested in investigating why individuals with anxiety disorders tend to engage in behaviors that compromise their physical health, such as substance abuse, misuse of contraceptives, and avoidance of preventive medical care. Carrie is also a student therapist at a behavioral medicine clinic in Philadelphia that treats mental health issues related to chronic medical conditions, such as HIV, heart disease, and chronic pain.
