Welcome Santia Berberena, PsyD!
We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Nina Berberna to the GI department! Dr. Berberena, who is also referred to as Dr. Nina by several of her patients and colleagues, is a CT native and proud UConn alumnus. After completing her bachelors degree in psychology at the University of Connecticut in 2006, she then went on to complete a masters degree in health psychology at Central Connecticut State University. In her desire to learn more about the developing role that mental health providers have in medical settings, she pursued a doctorate in clinical psychology at William James College with a specialization in health and provision of behavioral health services in community mental health and hospital settings. Dr. Berberena’s training experiences have granted her the opportunity to provide both individual and group psychotherapy to patients throughout the lifespan both within the inpatient psychiatric and outpatient settings.
