Dr. Bobbi Wegner is a MA and NY-licensed clinical psychologist at Boston Behavioral Medicine with expertise in parenting, health psychology, and behavioral medicine, and is a self-proclaimed decent cook. She is also a Teaching Fellow at Harvard Graduate School of Education. Her main areas of focus includes mindfulness-based stress management, pregnancy/postpartum adjustment, and bringing pleasure back to parenting. Aside from her clinical training, much of her real-life experience comes from raising and cooking for three loving and rambunctious children of her own. She is an expert family-friendly lentil soup maker and toffee bar baker, and gets plenty of opportunity to practice what she preaches at home.
Dr. Wegner received her doctorate from William James College and her undergraduate degree from Trinity College in Hartford, CT. She completed an APA-Internship at Mount Sinai School of Medicine (in Rehabilitation Medicine and Neuropsychology) in New York City, followed by a post-doctoral fellowship at Boston Behavioral Medicine in Brookline, MA, where she has worked as a staff member and supervisor since 2008. Dr. Wegner has a regular column in The Milton Times called “Raising & Roasting: The Psychology & Food of Modern Day Parenthood,” and a podcast under the same name where she interviews parents about the successes and challenges of everyday parenting, including what they cook for family dinner. She frequently contributes to psychology-focused articles, which are found on the ‘Recent Press’ section of her website.
