Anna Brandon, PhD, ABPP
Dr. Anna Brandon is a board-certified clinical psychologist in private practice in Southlake, Texas. Anna completed her doctoral training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, and subsequently received a Master of Science in Clinical Science as a National Institutes of Health-funded Clinical Scholar. As an Assistant Professor at UT Southwestern, she assisted in the development of a free-standing Women’s Mental Health Center and was awarded an early career development award from the National Institute of Mental Health to develop Partner-Assisted Interpersonal Psychotherapy (PA-IPT) for perinatal mood disorders. Her research took her to the University of North Carolina, where between 2011 and 2014 she was also the staff psychologist at the first dedicated perinatal psychiatry inpatient unit in the US. Anna returned to Texas in 2014, establishing a private practice specializing in the treatment of mood and anxiety disorders in adolescent girls and women with distress in the context of reproductive events (premenstrual tension, infertility, pregnancy, pregnancy loss, perinatal trauma, postpartum distress, and menopause). Alongside her private practice, she provides clinical supervision for graduate students at UT Southwestern, trains therapists to conduct Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), and collaborates in IPT research at the University of Iowa.
