Dr. Craig received her bachelor's degree in Psychology from Duke University, and a joint doctoral degree in Clinical and Developmental Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh.  She then returned to Duke University Medical Center to complete her clinical internship, with an emphasis on pediatric psychology.

 

Prior to founding Bull City Behavioral Health, Dr. Craig was a clinical associate in the Departments of Psychiatry and Pediatrics at Duke University Medical Center (DUMC).  Within the division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology, she worked closely with children, youth, and young adults undergoing cancer treatment, providing neuropsychological and psychological evaluations, and delivering short-term interventions to manage stress, anxiety, and physical symptoms associated with treatment (e.g., pain, nausea, sleep disturbances).  Through this role she was also involved in the development of the Teen and Young Adult Oncology program at DUMC, and in the coordination of psychosocial services for oncology patients where she led monthly clinical and quarterly educational rounds for providers within the division.  In the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, she worked extensively with the Pediatric Neuropsychology Clinic, providing comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations for youth with varied medical diagnoses.

During her tenure at DUMC, Dr. Craig pursued additional formal training in biofeedback and neurofeedback, completing two 40-hour workshops on these techniques through the STENS corporation in 2017 and 2018.  This additional training enhances her ability to equip clients with a number of tools designed to increase physiological awareness and somatic control.

 

Outside of her clinical work, Dr. Craig has published scientific journal articles, and presented at conferences on research topics including the impact of pediatric chronic illness on cognitive and psychosocial functioning as well as genetic and environmental influences on behavior. Additionally, she served as a coinvestigator for a federally funded grant exploring behavioral interventions to prevent syncope associated with immunizations during well-child visits.

 

In addition to being a clinical psychologist, Dr. Craig is also a certified yoga teacher. She completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training through OM yoga. Since receiving this certification, Dr. Craig has taught mindfulness-based yoga at a residential treatment facility for youth with eating disorders, and integrates yoga into her therapy practice when requested.

 

Outside of work, Dr. Craig enjoys spending time with her husband and children, practicing yoga, cooking and baking, and gardening.
