About Dr. Wolfe

Brenda L. Wolfe, Ph.D. earned her Doctorate in Experimental Psychology, with a focus on Health Psychology, from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 1985. Following graduation, she entered the corporate workforce where Dr. Wolfe applied her research and organizational skills to assist in the development of two highly successful start-up companies and developed a small, but active, consulting and writing practice.

At Education Systems Technology Corporation (ESTC), which she joined in 1985 as the ninth employee, Dr. Wolfe spearheaded the development of one of the country’s first integrated, computer-based K-6 reading curricula and progressed to a senior project management position in which she assisted client school districts in implementing learner-outcome research. She also served as primary U.S. liaison in the establishment of a Canadian subsidiary. ESTC went on to become Jostens Learning Corporation, a subsidiary of Jostens Corporation.

In 1989, Dr. Wolfe became Director of Research & Client Relations for Jenny Craig Weight Loss Centers where she assisted the company in making the transition from a food-based weight-loss program to one based on empirically-established principles of behavior change. During the five years she worked there, Dr. Wolfe was involved in all aspects of bringing the program to market, from conception to packaging.

In 1994, Dr. Wolfe relocated to New Mexico where she has built a reputation as a consultant, writer, and lecturer. In 1996 she enrolled at the University of New Mexico for doctoral re-specialization in Clinical Psychology. She completed that program in 1999 and established her private practice in 2001. Since then, the practice has grown into the Eating Disorders Institute of New Mexico which provides evidence-based treatment to teens and adults struggling with obesity and eating disorders.

Dr. Wolfe has published a number of articles in both the scientific and popular press and been actively involved in many professional organizations. For a detailed listing of her publications and presentations, please visit our website, and select Clinical Staff on the About Us menu.
