About Dr. Corona

Marissa Corona, PhD (PSY 27499) is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in providing evidence-based treatments for eating, mood, and anxiety disorders in children, adolescents, and young adults.

Dr. Corona has specialized eating disorders training and is one of the only certified FBT therapists (Family-Based Treatment/Maudsley) for adolescent eating disorders in Orange County. She draws from her strong clinical and research training in order to provide families with high quality, evidence-based interventions that have been supported by research.

Dr. Corona received her doctorate in Child Clinical Psychology from the University of Washington and completed internship at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford/ Children’s Health Council where she obtained clinical and research training in a wide spectrum of child and adolescent disorders including anxiety, mood, and eating disorders. Dr. Corona then went on to complete a specialized eating disorders postdoctoral fellowship at the Stanford University School of Medicine Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. She has worked and trained in multiple eating disorder settings including inpatient medical stabilization units, inpatient psychiatric units, and outpatient eating disorders clinics. Dr. Corona has also served as a therapist on randomized clinical trials (RCT’s) at Stanford where she provided FBT to adolescents and their families. Her own research has also examined obesity and mental health in children and adolescents. 

​OC Evidence-Based Treatments was founded on the belief that families deserve the best possible care through psychotherapy treatments that are based on scientific evidence and cutting-edge research.
