Jaclyn is a postdoctoral fellow within the UIC CLEAR Lab under the mentorship of Dr. Tory Eisenlohr-Moul. Jaclyn is a recipient of the NIMH T32 Postdoctoral Research Fellowship for Training in the Neuroscience of Mental Health, and her research centers on 1) the role of the menstrual cycle (and ovarian hormone fluctuations) in both interpersonal symptoms and suicidality, 2) the application of DBT skills in yielding symptom improvement in the premenstrual phase among hormone-sensitive patients.

Her clinical interests include the use of cognitive behavioral therapies in treating mood, anxiety, and trauma disorders, as well as Borderline Personality Disorder/emotion dysregulation, couples conflict and sexual dysfunction. Jaclyn applies techniques from the following therapies: cognitive-behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy, exposure therapy, cognitive processing therapy, prolonged exposure, integrative behavioral couples therapy, and sensate focus therapy.

Jaclyn received her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Carnegie Mellon University. She received her Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Clinical Psychology at University of California, Los Angeles, where she studied interpersonal processes among low-income newlywed couples under the mentorship of Dr. Tom Bradbury. Jaclyn completed her APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine.
