About Jennifer Davey, PsyD, EdM, BCB
Dr. Jennifer Davey is a licensed clinical psychologist in independent practice, located in Buckingham Township, PA. She is also certified in biofeedback by the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA). Drawing from her diverse educational and clinical background, Dr. Davey uses an integrative approach – incorporating both cognitive behavioral therapy and applied psychophysiological methods (e.g. biofeedback, neurofeedback, breath training, imagery, guided visualization) – to address a range of physical and psychological symptoms.
Dr. Davey obtained her Bachelor's degree from Rutgers University, graduating with high honors in Psychology. She went on to complete her Masters degree in Elementary and Special Education from Rutgers University's Graduate School of Education, during which she received comprehensive training in early cognitive and behavioral development of children.
With her growing interest in mind-body health and wellness, Dr. Davey went on to further pursue a doctoral degree in psychology with a focus on training in the mind-body connection and specifically in applied psychophysiology and biofeedback. She earned her Masters and Doctoral degrees in Clinical Psychology at the Graduate Institute of Clinical Psychology at Widener University. Her diverse clinical work included assessment, psychotherapy and coaching for emotional and behavioral difficulties, learning and attention disorders, health related disorders, and stress management for children and adults.
In addition, Dr. Davey completed a 2-year APA-approved internship at the Widener Biofeedback Clinic and Certification Center. She was the first intern to work at the biofeedback center, helping to start and establish its role and involvement in the community. Her graduate research focused on incorporating biofeedback and applied psychophysiology within traditional cognitive behavioral methods to treat posttraumatic stress disorder. Dr. Davey also published an article on integrating biofeedback into psychotherapy practice.
Dr. Davey completed her postdoctoral training at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, primarily doing neuropsychological assessment for NIH-funded studies for a range of disorders for infants, toddlers, children, adolescents and adults. She continued her work as a psychologist at CHOP after her training, until she decided to focus solely on her work at her private practice.
Dr. Davey's practice focuses on placing importance on addressing aspects of both the mind and body, educating how the mind and body work together, and teaching real-life behavioral techniques to facilitate healthy physical and psychological change. Beyond developing knowledge and self-awareness, individuals also become equipped with hands-on skills that serve to empower themselves as they learn to create and maintain improved health and wellbeing.
Dr. Davey is a member of the American Psychological Association, Pennsylvania Psychological Association, and Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback.
