Laurel Mellin, PhD is a health psychologist and an Associate Clinical Professor of Family and Community Medicine and Pediatrics at UCSF.

She is the founder of Emotional Brain Training (EBT), a program that empowers people to rewire target and erase wires that cause problems, such as stress eating, obesity, diabetes, anxiety, addiction, and depression. The mission of EBT.ORG is to rewire problems, then raise the brain's emotional set point for lasting results.

Dr. Mellin's latest book is Stress Eating: A Proven, Neuroscience Way to End Overeating (publication date 9/1/18). She is a New York Times bestselling author and speaks widely on EBT as a new paradigm in health care in which people can use simple tools to rewire the circuits that block their joy and improve their health without relying on the overuse of medications, procedures and devices.

She teaches EBT to faculty, staff and medical students at the University of California (laurel@ebt.org). Dr. Mellin's platform makes the tools accessible through web-based applications and her organization certifies health professionals to deliver EBT weekly and daily intensive telegroups through remote services in the United States and globally.
