I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Washington where I studied borderline personality disorder and DBT for more than five years under the mentorship of Dr. Marsha Linehan. My dissertation research focused on the use of the DBT skill of “opposite action” to treat shame (Rizvi & Linehan, 2005). I completed my predoctoral clinical internship at the Boston Consortium in Clinical Psychology and an NIMH postdoctoral fellowship at the National Center for PTSD at the Boston VA Healthcare System. Following this fellowship, I was Assistant Professor of Psychology at the New School for Social Research in NewYork City from 2006-2009 before coming to GSAPP.
