About Me

As a clinical psychologist, I work with patients of all ages presenting a wide range of concerns including chronic pain, anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, eating/weight concerns, diabetes, asthma and cardiovascular disease.

My goal is to partner with patients and empower them to pursue their values and health goals. I use evidence-based approaches to care such as acceptance and commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, parent-child interaction therapy, prolonged exposure therapy and integrative behavioral couple therapy.

My areas of interest include primary care behavioral integration, interdisciplinary chronic pain rehabilitation programs, evidence-based treatments for behaviorally influenced conditions and acceptance and commitment therapy for a broad range of clinical problems.

My favorite part about working at Ohio State is the ability to treat a variety of diseases and conditions, as well as teach residents and fellows. I appreciate the opportunities for program development and hope to continue developing and implementing models of integrated care.

When I’m not working I enjoy traveling, doing yoga, dancing (ballet, tap, jazz), wine tasting and ambling in the woods with my husband, nieces and nephews.
Highlights
  • Served as Director of Pain Management Service at the Cincinnati VA and helped to improve quality of care by establishing new integrated care services and implementing collaborative initiatives with accountability measures
  • Serve as a national/international consultant and trainer for acceptance and commitment therapy, a type of evidence-based psychotherapy
  • My research focuses on understanding how social-contextual factors and individual psychological processes can contribute to various forms of human suffering and resiliency. My colleagues and I developed questionnaires to assess mindfulness and related processes

    I was originally seen by another psych provider at OSU who was not helpful at all. So when I got the appointment with Dr. Greco & was extremely nervous. Within the 1st 5 mins. of talking with her all my fears were gone! She's an amazing doctor. She is very caring & takes time to explain & offer ideas. She has helped me turn my life around. She can talk & explain things in a way that help relate & make sense. I'm glad she's my doctor.

    I feel that the psychologist was telling me to cancel my future appointments without saying those exact words to me. She kept questioning me about whether or not seeing her was what I needed. With her experience, tenure, degree etc. I think she would have been the one in the position to help me understand what kind of help I need. She often didn't want to listen to me when I tried to talk about things that were important to me. My take is that she has a single strategy that she uses period and that if the process was questioned or I just wanted more information she seemed to become combative with me.
