About MeAs 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.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
As of 12/20/2018, Dr. Greco has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
