Keneisha Sinclair-McBride | Professional History

My interest in psychology developed during adolescence, when I realized that my commitment to helping children and my curiosity about how the mind works could be combined into a career. As an undergraduate at Yale University, I began to pursue this career goal in earnest through coursework, community service, and collaboration on research projects focused on risk factors for adolescent depression. During graduate school, I conducted research on depression and comorbid conditions with a special focus on how bullying and eating-related problems can put children and adolescents at risk for the development of depression. At the same time, I gained clinical experience in a wide variety of settings focused on evidence-based treatment for children, adolescents, and families. During internship at Boston Children's Hospital, and as a fellow at Boston Medical Center and Boston Children’s Hospital, I further honed my clinical, research, and program development skills treating children and adolescents with psychiatric and medical illnesses in diverse settings. Now as a staff psychologist, I provide evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents with depression, anxiety, and comorbid conditions while participating in teaching, training, and research projects in these areas.

I strive to bring warmth, compassion, and positivity to my interactions with patients. My education and clinical experience have provided me with invaluable opportunities to work with diverse children, adolescents, and their families in a variety of settings. The unifying theme in this work has been the effectiveness of evidenced-based treatment in helping patients and their families access and strengthen their own resilience and efficacy. I am committed to helping youth with depression and anxiety through my clinical care and research because I know that with support, these youth can significantly improve how they are feeling by working on thinking and behaviors, facing their fears, and developing their talents and passions.
