Dr. Katherine "Kibby" McMahon is a clinical psychologist who completed her PhD program and postdoctoral fellowship at Duke University. Her research focuses on the relationships among social and emotional processes in psychopathology and treatment development. Her dissertation was designed to examine how emotion regulation skills (e.g. mindfulness) influence one's empathic ability to perceive and understand other people's emotions. She currently delivers evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy treatment to adults in her private practice and collaborates with the Center for Misophonia and Emotion Regulation on research to understand and treat misophonia.
