Professional Interests

Dr. Mensinger is an Associate Professor in the Department of Clinical and School Psychology. Her research examines eating disorders treatment, prevention, and diagnosis specifically using a trauma-informed, weight-inclusive lens. Broadly speaking, her work uses a health equity perspective that seeks to eradicate weight stigma and barriers to care especially in marginalized populations. Presently, she is conducting a study assessing the feasibility of using HRV biofeedback with healthcare providers to enhance resilience, interoceptive awareness, and mindful self-care behaviors to help them cope with the extreme stressors of working in healthcare during the COVID-19 pandemic.
