Dr. Zoffness earned her BA from Brown University in Brain & Behavior, completing her honors thesis on the neuroscience and psychology of pain. She earned an MA in Psychology & Education from Columbia University, a MS in Clinical Psychology from SDSU, and a PhD from UCSD. She completed her internship at Mt. Sinai-St. Luke's Hospital in NYC, and received additional post-doctoral training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) for chronic pain & illness at the Mindful Center.
Her first book, The Chronic Pain & Illness Workbook for Teens, was published in 2019. Her second workbook, The Pain Management Workbook (for adults), will be released by New Harbinger in Fall 2020. She's also the author of the popular Psychology Today column "Pain, Explained." She loves what she does, and feels very lucky to support people living with pain -- and the providers who treat them.
