Jennifer Funaro is a Master’s level clinical psychology intern. She completed her Master of Arts at Appalachian State University in May 2017 and is conducting her internship at Duke University before seeking licensure. Her research examines the association between interpersonal violence within dating relationships and unhealthy weight control behaviors (i.e. discorded eating behaviors, steroid use, body mass indices, and body image perception) in the national adolescent population. Prior to her Master’s work, Jennifer graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University where she majored in Biology and worked around the triangle for a physical therapy company. Jennifer enjoys working with patients of all ages exploring the mind/body interaction and has previous experience as a behavioral health specialist in primary care settings. All of her clinical work is founded in evidence based practices, more specifically utilizing acceptance and commitment therapy strategies. When Jennifer is not at Duke, she is exploring the beautiful state of North Carolina with her husband and her dog, Moses.
