Dr. Susan Borja

Dr. Susan Borja has spent her career studying how trauma affects people. As a clinical psychologist, she focuses on understanding how processes like fear, memory, arousal, and emotion regulation change when people are faced with extremely stressful events. She likes the puzzle of untangling biology, environment, and circumstance to identify those who could benefit from earlier intervention to prevent long term problems and to develop new treatments for those with mental illness. Susan likes to travel to faraway places, bake, and eat ice cream.
