About Dr. Emmerson


I’ve had patients call me Dr. Emmerson and college students call me Professor Emmerson but really, I just go by Lindsay or Mom.  I grew up in Durango, Colorado and met my husband while we were both in college at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.  I completed my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at the University of Maryland at College Park with a pre-doctoral internship at the University of California, San Diego and the Veterans Affairs San Diego Healthcare System.  Shortly after completing a 2-year post-doctoral fellowship in the area of cognitive behavioral therapy for schizophrenia and receiving my license to practice psychology in the state of California, I had my first child.  I graded final exams for a course I was teaching as an adjunct professor at the University of San Diego, wrapped up a few lingering professional publications while the baby napped, then took an extended maternity leave…for 8 years.  This blog is my first foray back into my professional field. We now have 4 children (3 boys and a girl) and live in Santa Barbara, California.
