Natalie Dautovich, Ph.D.

I completed my bachelor's degree in psychology at the University of New Hampshire in 2015, and then attended Boston College to earn my master's degree in mental health counseling in 2017. I entered the counseling psychology doctoral program at VCU in fall 2017. My research interests include health behavior change and habit formation, particularly in regards to eating behaviors, exercise and sleep. I am also interested in how regularly practiced health behaviors influence psychological health.
