Mary Alvord, PhD

Mary Alvord, PhD

"Although I have been an ADAA member for more than 20 years, I have become most involved in the past 6 years. My draw in recent years has been the complementary blend of evidence-based science and clinical practice. Bridging the gap between science and practice isn’t just a good name for a symposium, it’s a necessity! Regularly attending the annual conferences, presenting and participating in webinars, and most recently co-hosting the Twitter chat on #HolidayDepression has provided another professional home. I have been an APA Public Education Coordinator for over a decade. The mission is to disseminate accurate information about mental health to the public, promote mental health, and reduce stigma. ADAA is true to that mission, which I highly value. Professionally, I enjoy access to the expertise of others through the webinars and talks. I especially enjoy the master clinician workshops that provide more in-depth learning from experts. In addition to the professional stimulation and learning new information that I can apply, I enjoy the camaraderie of ADAA members. And the staff are great too, adding a welcoming note to all!"

Rachel Aredia, LCPC, NCC

"I joined the ADAA earlier this year when Dr. Kissen recommended it to me as I was starting out in full time private practice. After looking at the resources available and networking opportunities, I decided to join. The ADAA is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to anxiety, depression and other related topics and I felt that this would help support me in enhancing my knowledge base for my clients. I also loved that they provided webinars and CEU’s at a reasonable cost for professionals as well as providing webinars to the public. One of my missions in the mental health community is to help break the stigma that surrounds mental health diagnosis and getting treated for them in the public, whether it be talk therapy and medication therapy or one or the other. I felt that given the ADAA provides webinars and resources to the public aligns with that mission. I am also so grateful for the opportunities the ADAA has given me in publishing one of my blogs. The community is so supportive and encouraging. I am very much looking forward to the opportunities, future CEU’s, and conferences the ADAA provides.”

R. Nicholas Carleton, PhD, R.D. Psych

"I joined ADAA in 2004 as a new Master's student enrolled in the University of Regina graduate psychology program. The ADAA conference that year was held in Miami and would involve several firsts for me; specifically, my first conference attendance, my first poster presentations (I was fortunate enough to have two accepted), and my first time in Miami. Every aspect of the conference was spectacular and, for a nascent student, the experience was enthralling, but surreal. I was able to attend numerous symposia, many being presented by researchers I had read about and cited who suddenly became tangibly larger than life. I was able to interact with a tremendous number of like-minded researchers who were as excited about anxiety-related research as myself, as well as more welcoming and inclusive than I would have ever imagined. The entire experience was engaging and invigorating, and from that point on I was hooked — I have attended the ADAA conference every year since and the experience has been consistently excellent! I now have the privilege of giving back to an organization that has been such a salient and supportive part of my own professional growth. My own graduate students regularly attend the ADAA conference with me, which then make this terrific organization part of their own professional adventure. I look forward to many more years of growing together and I hope everyone reading continues to join us. I am certain we can all collaborate to continue building on the successes we have seen in improving mental health."

Noah B. Clayman, LCSW-R, ACT

"I joined ADAA in 2014 to increase professional connections and friendships, and to stay abreast on the most cutting edge treatments. Aside from making the decision to pursue post-graduate training in CBT, the act of joining ADAA has been the most important step of my professional career. I am thankful to be a part of ADAA for many reasons. (1) ADAA has one of the best annual conferences for mental health providers. (2) The conference includes workshops that target psychotherapy conceptualization and methods, with particular focus on evidence-based approaches, and I have gotten to meet many of the world-renowned educators and leaders in the field whose writings inspired my work. (3) ADAA has afforded me opportunities to teach workshops at the annual conference. For example, I had the honor of co-teaching the workshop session, " Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy: A Novel Approach to Changing Core Beliefs in CBT" with TBCT creator Dr. Irismar Reis De Oliveira, MD. (4) Conferences are held in cities that are fun to visit and explore outside of conference times. (5) unlike other conferences I have attended, the ADAA conference is not overwhelming in scale, there is always something stimulating to attend, and there are no additional fees to see your favorite presenter."

Kat Harris, PhD

Kat Harris, PhD

"I became involved with ADAA in graduate school. My mentor, Dr. David Valentiner, encouraged me to present at the conference. I presented at ADAA for the first time in 2010 and was hooked!"

"I absolutely love attending the conferences. They are an incredible way of connecting with colleagues. The presentations are always excellent and help me keep up with the latest innovations and research. I feel reinvigorated every time I go and plan to continue going annually as long as I can."

"There are many ways being an ADAA member benefits my work. I own a practice called Oakheart, Center for Counseling, Meditation, and Consultation. I treat primarily individuals with OCD and anxiety disorders on an outpatient basis. I also supervise students and mentor licensed professionals who have an interest in specializing in exposure-based interventions for OCD and anxiety. Therefore, as a practice owner, clinician, supervisor and mentor, it is critical that I continue my education. ADAA provides opportunities for continued education in so many ways! Between the conferencespecial interest groupswebinars, and journal access, I am able to feel confident in my ability to treat OCD and Anxiety and teach others to do so as well."

"As a practice owner and practicing psychologist, being a member also benefits me by allowing me to list myself and my specialized staff on the “Find a Therapist” directory. Being a member also allows me to contribute and share via blog posts. I refer community members and my clients to the resources available on the ADAA website frequently."

"Last, it has allowed me to volunteer my time in a field that I am passionate about. I am currently a vice-chair of the Women’s Specialty Interest group at ADAA. I have enjoyed building relationships with my colleagues and working to better serve women in mental health."

"Two years ago I opened a private practice with 3 amazing colleagues and friends. We now have 14 employees, 4 students, and 2 locations! I am thrilled to offer evidence-based cognitive behavioral treatment to those with OCD and Anxiety and to have a team of specialists by my side, including one of my co-owners Vanessa Osmer, M.A. We believe in providing high-quality evidence based treatment and I am able to do so with the help of communities like ADAA. I am a proud member!"

Tanja Jovanovic, PhD

"I first became involved in 2008, when my mentors Kerry Ressler and Barbara Rothbaum, who were very active in ADAA, encouraged me to apply for the Travel Award.  I was fortunate to get the award in 2009, and have been coming to the ADAA conference every year since then.  I have found ADAA to be a wonderful place to network with clinicians and researchers—it is small enough to be able to get to know most members, but also bring in new mentees to the field of anxiety. It is an excellent place to learn and grow a career.  Over time I became more and more involved with ADAA and in 2015 Dr. Ressler and I were co-chairs of the conference program. I have now become more involved in mentoring trainees—after several years of being a mentor on the Career Development Leadership Program (CDLP) by ADAA, I am now one of the co-chairs of this program—this allows me to provide the kinds of career opportunities that ADAA gave me more than a decade ago. Now I bring my own mentees every year and have several receive travel awards!"

"I consider ADAA to be my scientific “home”, the membership and the community aspects of this organization have always provided a strong base for communicating my research and learning about the best approaches to studying and treating anxiety. In recent years, ADAA has also become the “home” for my lab, with many students, postdocs, research assistants, and junior faculty attending and presenting at the conference every year. I truly enjoy meeting up with outstanding colleagues in the field and being able to introduce them to my mentees. Because ADAA members are so supportive of early career clinicians and researchers it provides a unique opportunity for networking and new collaborations."

"My research is focused on trauma exposure and how it changes the brain in a way that makes individuals vulnerable for depression, anxiety, and PTSD. As an ADAA member, I have a platform in which to present my research to the community that is most invested in the same population, whether from a clinical or research perspective.  Though the conference and webinars, I am also able to learn the most up-to-date developments in trauma research."

"Last year, I moved my lab from Emory to Wayne State University in Detroit to build a program to better understand urban trauma exposure, especially during development. It has been an exciting time, and even in a short time, we have found Detroit families very interested in our research program. Detroit has been especially impacted by COVID-19, and our communities of color have been disproportionately affected.  My lab has been reaching out to our participants to survey and offer resources to those most affected by the pandemic."

Tanja Jovanovic, PhD is a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences and the David and Patricia Barron Chair for PTSD Neurobiology at Wayne State University.

Jessica Maples-Keller, PhD

Jessica Maples-Keller, PhD

"I attended my first ADAA conference during graduate school in 2013, at the suggestion of my wonderful mentors Drs. Barbara Rothbaum and Kerry Ressler. Attending my first ADAA conference, I was grateful for the suggestion because I felt that I found my professional home. Within our field, many often note the importance of basic science informing applied science, and research informing practice and vice versa, but these can be difficult bridges to construct—however, ADAA does a great job at both of these goals. I love attending conferences and feel that the dialogue between these areas is very strong. At every conference, I've learned cutting edge information that informs my research as well as my clinical practice. I also really enjoy the sense of community and connecting with colleagues who work in similar areas. I look forward to continuing to be involved in ADAA in the future!"

Julia Martin Burch, PhD

“A supervisor encouraged me to join ADAA in 2016 because of the excellent learning and networking opportunities for students and early career psychologists. I joined on her recommendation and soon after became part of the Child and Adolescent SIG leadership team and attended my first conference. I was blown away by the quality of the conference programming - I often wanted to attend three or four workshops per time slot - and left with many new evidence-based clinical insights and ideas. Since then, ADAA has become my favorite professional organization by far, due to the exceptional annual conference, professional development and networking opportunities, and the robust SIG programming. There are also so many ways to engage with the organization, such as the CDLP mentoring program or writing blogs for the lay public. I now encourage my own supervisees to join ADAA to build their professional networks and participate in the best conference around.”

Douglas Mennin, PhD, Scientific Council Chair

"I joined ADAA over 20 years ago after attending the conference my first year in grad school. I remember being struck at how much ADAA cared about understanding anxiety and helping those suffering about it. Their mission was clear and it seemed they wanted to do something to make a real difference. This initial observation is what I have observed time and again from ADAA. I have continued to be impressed over these many years. As the Chair of the Scientific Council, I am excited to actively contribute to that multi-pronged mission and aid the organization in elucidating the science of anxiety and depression as well as providing my services to help ADAA get the word out to the public and improve the lives of those suffering from these conditions."

Martin Paulus, PhD, Scientific Council Co-Chair

"Murray Stein told me a long time ago 'I will make you into an anxiety researcher' and I think he succeeded and I am very happy about it too. My first ADAA meeting was in Saint Louis in 2007 and I have been coming every year ever since. ADAA is a natural home for high quality research in mood and anxiety disorders and provides the unique opportunity to connect with clinicians and those affected by mood and anxiety disorders." 

Dr. Paulus is the Scientific Director and President of the Laureate Institute for Brain Research (LIBR) in Tulsa, OK. Dr. Martin Paulus joined the Laureate Institute for Brain Research (LIBR) in Tulsa, Oklahoma as the Scientific Director and President in May 2014. Prior to this transition, he had been a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) and the Director of Telemental Health at the Veterans Affairs San Diego Health Care System (VASDHS). Dr. Paulus had been at UCSD since arriving as a postdoctoral fellow in 1986 and has been funded continuously by the NIH since 1997. LIBR focuses on using neuroscience approaches to develop better assessments for diagnosis or prognosis of mental health problems and to develop neuroscience based novel interventions. Dr. Paulus' research focuses on pragmatic academic psychiatry, i.e. how to use neuroscience-based measurements to generate individual level predictions that can be useful for clinicians. Moreover, Dr. Paulus is interested in whether computational approaches can be useful to better develop explanatory basis for psychiatric disorders that can be submitted to rigorous scientific examination. In particular, Dr. Paulus is interested whether individuals with increased levels of anxiety have difficulty differentiating random fluctuations from probabilistic but useful information.

Laura Rhodes-Levin, MS, LMFT

"I first became involved with ADAA in 2016. I was so thrilled to know that there was an organization that focused solely on mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. Mental health is such an important issue to not only our physical health, but to our birth given right to happy and purposeful lives! Around the time I joined ADAA, I founded The Missing Peace-Center for Anxiety in Los Angeles California, an intensive outpatient program that focuses on anxiety depression and trauma. Becoming a part of this organization gives me the chance to help people locally, as well as nationally."

"A couple of years ago I was granted the opportunity to become co-chair of the SIG for integrative health at the ADAA. I love the work that we are doing! While medications are helpful in many situations, our SIG is demonstrating efficacy for other more holistic modalities that, we who are out here in the field working with patients directly, get to see real the  improvements in levels of anxiety and depression through these modalities."

"Getting to have connections with fellow colleagues in my field has numerous benefits. For example, I have added modalities to my practice that I had never even heard of based on the results and collaborations I have heard about from other members of ADAA."

"I believe my center is the only one of its kind on the west coast. I am so proud of the team that I brought together and of the tear-jerking work that has helped free our patients from the grips of anxiety, depression and trauma. I have been lucky enough to appear on many local and national television newscasts because of the progress within my center. Each person that we see get better is an accomplishment that could bring a person joy for a lifetime!"

Andrew Rosen, PhD, ABPP, FAACP

“I became involved with ADAA when it was still the Phobia Society of America around 1990. I met Jerilyn Ross then and in the early 1990s we initiated a plan to have statewide chapters…in that case the Anxiety Disorders Association of Florida. This proved to not be a practical pathway and was phased out. I attended most of the annual conferences and really enjoyed the learning and the culture of the association as more and more professionals around the country developed a dedication to understanding anxiety and later mood disorders. Before the 1990 period there was little attention paid to these diagnostic entities. I have enjoyed presenting at many conferences and participating in the planning of presentations and a few of the conferences in Florida. Being an ADAA member has benefited me as a psychologist as a person and it has added to the recognition that our Center here in Florida has. Recently, I have become a Co-Chair for the Social Anxiety SIG of ADAA and look forward to continuing its development in offering education to interested members. Although we are all disappointed that our meeting in San Antonio could not be, I look forward to providing help to the many, many people who are and will be hurting from COVID and resuming at next year’s meeting.”

Since 1999, Neal has provided support, guidance and coaching to over 3,000 people working for their recovery from panic disorder, agoraphobia and social anxiety disorder. 

ADAA was essential to Neal's recovery. In 1997, he came across Jerilyn Ross' book "Triumph Over Fear." He contacted ADAA, and found his amazing CBT therapist as a result. After completing his recovery work, Neal joined ADAA. He attended his first ADAA conference in San Diego, in 1999. The following year, the journal of the ADAA, The ADAA Reporter, published Neal's essay: "How I Achieved My Cure of Panic Disorder and Agoraphobia: An Open Letter to Those on the Healing Path." Neal started giving presentations at ADAA conferences in 2005. In 2011, Neal was invited to participate in the newly-formed ADAA Public Education Committee, under Sally Winston's leadership.

Jennifer Sy, PhD

Jennifer Sy, PhD

“My first ADAA conference and introduction to ADAA was in Santa Ana Pueblo, NM in 2009 as a second-year graduate student when my research lab went as a road trip (eleven years ago!). I enjoyed attending the conference and have attended several ADAA conferences since! I think the intersection of researchers and clinicians at ADAA makes for great dialogue and fresh perspectives at the annual conferences. I always look forward to the Q&A portion when I present a talk, because the audience members bring a diverse array of perspectives to the discussion which helps everyone think more critically about their own knowledge of the topic.”

“ADAA is a great place to find topics for continuing education on a wide variety of topics, which is very useful when encountering co-occurring diagnoses/problems. My colleagues at Houston OCD Program and I have used ADAA's webinars (most recently Jonathan Grayson's webinar on Strategic Pressure) as a mini-lunch and learn for our office and had a discussion afterwards about how we could implement aspects of what we learned in our clinical practice.”

Dr. Jennifer Sy is a clinical psychologist at the Houston OCD Program. Dr. Sy’s clinical and research interests focus on optimization of exposure therapy for anxiety disorders, particularly in OCD, panic disorder, and social anxiety. Since many individuals present with co-occurring anxiety and OC-spectrum disorders, she is particularly interested in helping clients identify common behaviors/thought processes that occur across diagnoses so they can apply what they learn in treatment to other areas of their lives.

Sanne van Rooij, PhD

Sanne van Rooij, PhD

"I became an ADAA member in 2015 when I started as a postdoc at the Grady Trauma Project with Tanja Jovanovic and Kerry Ressler, who co-chaired the conference that year in Miami (the one with the great waterfront dance party). The thing I enjoy the most about ADAA is the community, all the members I have met in the last 5 years. ADAA has also provided me many new opportunities for research and collaboration. I have really enjoyed co-chairing the Genetics & Neuroscience SIG 2017-2019 with Sahib Khalsa. It was a great way to get to know the ADAA organization better and learn more about the conference and what people are most interested in."

Dr. Sanne van Rooij is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory University. She received her Ph.D. in Clinical Neuroscience from Utrecht University (the Netherlands) in 2015. Dr. van Rooij's research aims to identify neurobiological predictors for PTSD development and treatment response and the investigation of novel brain-based treatments. As part of her PhD training with Drs. Kahn and Geuze, she performed a pre- and post-treatment neuroimaging study on war veterans with PTSD. She identified predictors for poor treatment outcome, such as a smaller hippocampus and increased amygdala activation. As a postdoctoral fellow with Drs. Ressler and Jovanovic, she studied the role of the hippocampus in the development of PTSD in acutely and chronically traumatized civilians and children. She is an active member of the Neuroimaging Group of the PTSD psychiatric consortium. Dr. van Rooij collaborates with Emory's Department of Neurosurgery to assess the effect of amygdala ablation and direct amygdala stimulation on PTSD symptoms and biomarkers. She has been an active member of ADAA since 2015.
