Dr. Allmann graduated summa cum laude with her BA from the University of Missouri, where she majored in psychology. She received her PhD in clinical psychology from Stony Brook University with a particular interest in the development, trajectory, and effective treatment of anxiety and mood disorders over the lifespan. She completed a predoctoral internship at the Northport Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School’s OCD Institute for Children and Adolescents, where she developed expertise working with treatment refractory OCD, PTSD, and related disorders. As an Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology at Stony Brook University, she continued to specialize in treating OCD and its common co-occurring disorders in children, adolescents, and adults.

She also has a passion for supervising other clinicians, psychology trainees, and medical residents, and has provided various trainings to that end. Her research interests include the reciprocal relationships and interactions between parents and children, specifically how child psychopathology and temperament impact, and are impacted by parenting and parental traits.
