Andrea Gold, PhD

Clinical Psychologist, Pediatric Anxiety Research Center

Andrea Gold, PhD, is a staff psychologist at the Pediatric Anxiety Research Center (PARC), and clinical assistant professor of psychiatry and human behavior at The Alpert Warren School of Medicine at Brown University. 

Prior to joining PARC, she completed a postdoctoral Intramural Research Training Award Fellowship at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). She received her bachelor’s degree from Cornell University and her doctorate in clinical psychology at Yale University. She completed her clinical internship in the dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) specialization track at the Yale School of Medicine. In her doctoral and postdoctoral training, Dr. Gold used functional neuroimaging, psychophysiology, and behavioral methods to study the neural mechanisms of pediatric and adult anxiety disorders. In addition to her clinical research on anxiety, she simultaneously gained learned DBT, an evidence-based treatment for severe, pervasive emotion dysregulation, suicidal and non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI), and borderline personality disorder (BPD). 

As a member of the PARC team, Dr. Gold is passionate about her goal to integrate clinical research, exposure and response prevention, and DBT. She is currently developing an adaptation of DBT targeting exposure (DBT-X) for the subpopulation of adolescents with OCD and other fear disorders co-occurring with emotion dysregulation, self-injurious behaviors, and BPD. For this subpopulation and along with the PARC team, Dr. Gold is developing a DBT-X track within the Intensive Program for OCD and Related Disorders. Her research also examines the development of BPD in adolescent girls and boys.
