Dr. Holly is excited to be interviewing applicants during the upcoming admissions cycle of Marquette University’s doctoral program in Clinical Psychology (to start the program in the Fall 2020).
Dr. Holly grew up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania before earning her undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland, College Park. After a research assistantship at Mt. Hope Family Center at the University of Rochester, Dr. Holly completed her doctoral work at Arizona State University where she participated in state of the art training and research in developmental psychopathology, prevention/intervention, and culture. As a postdoctoral associate in the Child Program at Boston University’s Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders (CARD), Dr. Holly specialized in empirically supported assessment and intervention strategies designed to target anxiety, depression, and related social, emotional, behavioral issues in youth.
Ph.D., Clinical Psychology, Arizona State University, 2016

B.A., University of Maryland, 2007
At the graduate level, Dr. Holly teaches PSYC 8301-Psychological Assessment 1 and PSYC 8965-Advanced Practicum in Clinical Psychology. At the undergraduate level, she teaches PSYC 3401-Abnormal Psychology.
Although there have been many advances in the development and implementation of evidence-based interventions, the most effective treatments for youth mental health disorders are not effective all the time, are not available to all the youth in need of them, and do not address issues of diversity. Dr. Holly’s research aims to study and improve evidence-based interventions for all youth and families, particularly those from traditionally underserved backgrounds (e.g., minority, low-income). More specifically, Dr. Holly’s work 1) identifies family level risk factors and resilience resources that may be leveraged to enhance child and family response to interventions; 2) evaluates evidence-based interventions for relevance to and efficacy with minority youth; and 3) re-designs evidence-based interventions for dissemination and implementation.
