Rachel Canella, M.S.
As a recent graduate of Loyola, I completed various training opportunities in psychotherapy, psychological evaluations, and clinical research. I will begin doctoral training at La Salle University in Fall 2019. I intend to further develop my clinical and research interests to help provide and increase the dissemination of high-quality, evidence-based psychological care to marginalized youth and high-risk families.
I am a double psychology and neuroscience rising sophomore, attending Johns Hopkins University. While I have yet to narrow down specific mental disorders that I would like to focus on studying, I am especially interested in the expression of mental disorders in adolescents. I have previously interned under the Rainnie Lab at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center at Emory University, investigating the role of the basolateral amygdala in long term memory consolidation.

I am interested in the research of applying computer science in psychological therapy. My volunteer work at JH-COACH focused on designing a series of VR research projects to examine ways of improving treatment for children with OCD.
I am interested in clinical research on trauma, PTSD, dissociation, and anxiety disorders in children and adults. I have worked in multiple psychology labs at Towson University, University of Maryland, College Park, and University of Maryland, Baltimore County, focusing on PTSD and substance abuse in adults and the neurological correlated and maintaining factors of anxiety disorders in young adults. I plan to continue working and volunteering in psychology labs in preparation for clinical Ph.D. program in the future.
