About the Provider

Kean J. Hsu, Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist and assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Georgetown University. His research investigates how basic cognitive processes (e.g., attention, executive functioning) contribute to the development and maintenance of mood disorders and anxiety. He is also interested in scalable mental health interventions (e.g., cognitive training, brief interventions) and examining mechanisms underlying psychotherapeutic interventions, as well as increasing awareness of issues surrounding mental health and stigma in communities that are typically under-served or under-utilize mental health services. Clinically, Dr. Hsu specializes in the treatment of depression, anxiety disorders, and stress across adulthood, from late adolescence to older adulthood. He is a member of the Associate Editorial Board at Behaviour Research and Therapy.

Dr. Hsu graduated with distinction at Yale University with a B.A. in psychology (with a behavioral neuroscience specialization) before receiving his Ph.D. in clinical psychology at the University of Southern California. He completed postdoctoral research fellowships at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School, the University of California, Los Angeles, and the University of Texas at Austin. Most recently, Dr. Hsu was a research assistant professor at the University of Texas at Austin in the Institute for Mental Health Research and the Department of Psychology. He also co-directed the Anxiety and Stress Clinic with Jasper Smits, Ph.D., at UT-Austin.
