Message to clients

Welcome! I am Dr. Rebecca Shingleton, Ph.D., a licensed clinical psychologist practicing in Boston. I evaluate and treat symptoms related to anxiety, panic, phobias, OCD, depression, and eating disorders. Additionally, I work with adults looking to effectively navigate current life stressors (e.g., work challenges, interpersonal relationships, transitions). My aim is to create a compassionate and open environment in order to address my patients’ concerns. I use state of the art interventions such as cognitive behavioral and acceptance based strategies. These empirically supported tools have been shown to be successful at catalyzing change. I then personalize treatment in order to effectively and efficiently achieve my client’s goals.

I completed my undergraduate degree in psychology at Princeton University, research assistantship at Columbia University Medical Center, doctoral studies at Boston University’s Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, clinical internship at Weill Cornell Medicine, and postdoctoral training at the VA Boston Healthcare System. In these settings, I have trained with international experts in cognitive behavioral therapy and the treatment of emotional disorders. In addition to my private practice, I am on the faculty at Harvard University where I teach undergraduate & graduate students. I have also consulted for digital therapeutic companies seeking to integrate cognitive behavioral strategies and research into their product. I have received funding from the National Institute of Mental Health, published over 25 papers and book chapters, and have presented on a range of topics pertaining to mental health both nationally and internationally.
