Shruti Ram at our ocd clinic

Shruti Shankar Ram, B.S., is part of the administrative team for the Behavioral Wellness Clinic as well as Lab Manager for the Eating Anxiety Therapy (EAT) Lab. She assists with daily operations of the clinic and is responsible for marketing and outreach. She is interested in the research and application of evidence-based treatments for eating disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorder. At the EAT Lab, Shruti works with Dr. Levinson on several studies to explore the efficacy of exposure therapy and ecological momentary assessment methods in eating disorder treatment.

In the future, she hopes to attain a PhD in Clinical Psychology and explore how perfectionism, negative self-evaluation and obsessive-compulsive symptoms contribute towards eating disorder symptomatology.
