About Me

As a clinical health psychologist, I specialize in women’s mental health during pregnancy, postpartum and parenthood at The Ohio State University’s Women’s Behavioral Health center.

My approach to clinical care focuses on cognitive behavioral therapy. I work with women to help them capitalize on their strengths and build new skills and coping resources to promote resilience. My research focuses on the effects of stress on physiology and health in women during pregnancy and postpartum, which also informs my treatment.

I enjoy working at Ohio State because I’m able to contribute value in multiple ways, via research and clinical work as well as education roles within the Ohio State College of Medicine. The opportunities for collaboration with varied and accomplished experts across many fields is highly rewarding.

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 09/29/2023, Dr. Christian has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
