Profile Headshot


Jared K. O’Garro-Moore, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Medical Psychology (in Psychiatry) at CUIMC. Dr. O’Garro-Moore specializes in the treatment of adults with mood and anxiety disorders as well as personality disorders. Integrating his advanced training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dr. O’Garro-Moore is able to tailor his treatment to fit each individual’s needs.

Dr. O’Garro-Moore completed his undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This was followed by a Master’s degree and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Temple University. His predoctoral psychology internship was at the Corporal Michael J. Crescenz Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center. There, he honed skills in the treatment of adults with trauma, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, as well as serious mental illnesses (Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, etc.). In graduate school, Dr. O’Garro-Moore’s research was focused on the process by which manic/hypomanic episodes initiate and remit; as well as the extent to which comorbid anxiety disorders effect the course of bipolar spectrum disorders. He has also been an author and co-author on several papers on the mechanisms that contribute to the onset of mood disorders, providing him with expertise in addressing issues related to depression and bipolar spectrum disorders.
