People describe me as warm, compassionate, inviting, and comforting. I am also quick-witted, energetic, and sociable. I love to connect with people in a meaningful way. It's important to me that you feel heard and understood, and I also aim to give you skills and tools that help you in life.
Hi, I'm Dr. Marina Harris! Thank you for visiting my website.
I recently graduated with my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and am still completing the last part of my training to become a psychologist. I also have a Master's degree in Kinesiology and Health with an emphasis in sport psychology from Miami University.
I recently completed an APA-accredited psychology internship at Duke University Medical Center. I now work at the University of North Carolina Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders (UNCCEED) providing support and therapy to people struggling with eating disorders. I also spend part of my time in the UNC Athletics Department, working with athletes to improve their mental wellness and sport performance.
I have several specialty areas:
Eating disorders (including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder)
Athlete and performer services - sport and performance psychology, including athlete mental health
Psychosocial factors of bariatric surgery, including therapy and assessment
Supporting trauma survivors
