Kathleen Fitzpatrick


Dr. Fitzpatrick is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine. She specializes in neuropsychological assessment of eating disorders and evaluation of treatments for children and adolescents. Her current research interests focus on the development of Cognitive Remediation Therapy (CRT), which utilizes neuropsychological components to address cognitive and behavioral difficulties associated with eating disorders. In addition to working as a therapist on research treatment studies, she also provides supervision to therapists on different treatment modalities.

Research Interest

Her current research focuses on neuropsychology and neuroimaging in eating disorders. I am particularly interested in the role of weight suppression and malnourishment on cognition, the evaluation of neuropsychological deficits in adolescents and cognitive features associated with obesity
