The COPE Lab

COPE (Center for Overcoming Problem Eating) is composed of a skilled team of clinical psychologists, graduate and post-doctoral researchers, and research assistants who are dedicated to providing treatment that is efficient, engaging, convenient, and efficacious (i.e., we use science-based approaches to deliver treatment that works). Our team is devoted to giving our clients an enjoyable and fulfilling treatment experience. We also challenge our clients to try new things and test out different ways of acting, thinking, and feeling using exposure-based techniques, cognitive restructuring, interpersonal skill development, values work, and other behavior change strategies.
