Dr. Kelly Stein-Marcus,
I am a clinical health psychologist (PhD) by training. I began with a Master’s Degree in Psychological Counseling (Columbia University in the City of NY) with a focus in rehabilitation. I spent many years working with a traumatic brain injury and developmentally disabled adult population. I received my PhD in Clinical Health Psychology from Yeshiva University/Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology and Einstein Medical College (Bronx, NY) in 1998. During my graduate training, I worked at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center as a pre-doctoral fellow as part of an NIMH fellowship. I completed my dissertation data collection and analysis there, focusing on the impact of pain on psychological functioning in women’s with AIDS. I also developed a measurement tool to assess the desire for hastened death in patients with cancer and HIV/AIDS. I completed a post doctoral fellowship at Yale University School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry in 1998. My post doctoral fellowship work focused on early intervention in psychosis. This work was part of the first national study on intervention with prodromal or “ultra-high risk” individuals. In 1998, I was awarded a NARSAD grant focusing on the assessment and differentiation of those at risk for psychosis versus schizotypal personality disorder. Upon completion of my post doctoral fellowship, i worked on the consultation liaison psychiatry service at the West Haven VA Medical Center in West Haven, CT, with a simultaneous appointment of instructor at the Yale School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry. I continued to work on the NARSAD award focusing on the schizophrenia prodrome while conducting assessments and clinical therapy at the VA Pain Management program. I practiced in Philadelphia, PA as an attending psychologist in the departments of Anesthesiology and Psychiatry (pain management focus) conducting assessments, in patient brief therapy as well as outpatient psychotherapy. From 2001-2005, I worked as a senior medical science liaison at Bristol Myers Squibb, Co. in the Field Medical Affairs neuroscience division helping to develop and educate on schizophrenia for the launch of aripripraozle (Abilify brand). I continued my outpatient private practice during that time.
Between 2005 and 2012, I worked in various roles as Sr. Medical Director for promotional medical education, publication planning and CME content development (all in the area of Psychiatry/Neuroscience). In 2012, I resumed my role as Sr Medical Science Liaison and subsequently was promoted to direct a field based team of 11 medical science Liaisons in the CNS/neuroscience space. I am currently in this role, but hope to return to clinical practice in the near future. I am currently licensed in the state of NY and pending licensure in the state of South Carolina where I currently live.
I have an eclectic philosophy, with a focus on personal growth and overall wellness. I was formally trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (for groups and individuals), particularly for those with medical illnesses, health issues, and pain management. I am proficient in content development and medical writing/reviewing. I conducted counseling in NYC after 9-11 as a volunteer psychologist. I am currently working to advance my skills in mindfulness based approaches.
I am comfortable with online platforms and conferencing, as I have worked remotely for over 18 years.
During this time of need, I hope to be able to work with people who are facing unprecedented uncertainty, anxiety and fear. I hope that I can contribute to this need.
