Michael Southam-Gerow, Ph.D.

I received bachelor’s degrees in psychology and sociology from Western Carolina University’s Honors College in 2014. After graduating, I completed a master’s degree in clinical psychology at Valdosta State University in 2016. I joined the doctoral program in clinical psychology at VCU in 2017. Broadly speaking, my research interests lie in the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based mental health treatments for ethnic and cultural minority youth, as well as the development of emotional self-regulation skills in early childhood.
