Dr. Trent received her Master's and Doctoral degrees in Clinical Psychology from the University of Mississippi, which was recently ranked among the top ten best clinical psychology PhD programs. She completed her predoctoral internship at the University of Alabama Birmingham Psychological Consortium working in a variety of clinical settings within the UAB Academic Medical Center and the Birmingham VA Hospital. Dr. Trent completed her postdoctoral training at the National Center for PTSD (Dissemination and Training Division) & Stanford University.

CLINICAL EXPERIENCE

Dr. Trent has extensive experience treating anxiety disorders across a variety of populations (children, adolescents, and adults) using only treatments with the most research support for a given disorder. These approaches include the following: manualized Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Social Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Specific Phobias (e.g., fear of flying), and Hoarding Disorder as well as Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).  She also has extensive experience treating trauma-related disorders (i.e., PTSD) with Prolonged Exposure (PE) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (certified provider). Dr. Trent has supervised therapists in the application of modularized evidence-based therapy for anxiety, depression, and behavioral problems. Currently, Dr. Trent trains future psychologists to accurately assess and diagnose anxiety disorders within the Stanford Department of Psychiatry.

RESEARCH EXPERIENCE

Dr. Trent's research interests relate to the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based treatments and assessment practices into clinical settings. The overarching goal guiding her research is improving the quality of mental health care, particularly in low-income, underserved populations. To this point her specific activities have largely been focused on the development, integration, and evaluation of research-based assessment strategies in frontline care settings.
