Suzanne Mazzeo, Ph.D.

I completed bachelor’s degrees in psychology and American studies from the University of California, Berkeley in 2015 and joined the doctoral program in counseling psychology at VCU in 2017. My research interests include learning how to incorporate cultural sensitivity into the assessment, prevention and treatment of eating disorders (EDs), examining the prevalence and presentation of EDs within South Asian and South Asian American populations, and utilizing technology to enhance dissemination and implementation efforts for ED populations, most typically college students. I am also interested more broadly in promoting mental health awareness and education among racial and ethnic minority populations.
