Dr. Gennarina Santorelli

Dr. Gennarina (Genna) Santorelli graduated from Fordham University with a BS in Psychology. She completed her doctoral studies in clinical psychology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Dr. Santorelli's research at UMass focused on the interplay of cognitive and emotional changes in older adulthood, emotion regulation in late life, and perceptions of age and emotional well-being. She completed pre-doctoral training in neuropsychological assessment at academic medical centers, community mental health centers, and clinics in New York City and the Massachusetts Pioneer Valley. She completed her pre-doctoral clinical internship in neuropsychology through the Alpert Medical School of Brown University, where she provided comprehensive neuropsychological assessments to adults at the Providence VA Medical Center and Rhode Island Hospital. 


Dr. Santorelli completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in clinical neuropsychology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC)/Massachusetts Mental Health Center/Harvard Medical School. After fellowship, she served as staff neuropsychologist in the Department of Psychiatry at BIDMC and held a faculty appointment as an Instructor in Psychology at Harvard Medical School. She also served as training director of BIDMC’s Psychiatry Neuropsychology Practicum Program, and provided formal supervision to graduate-level trainees. Dr. Santorelli was also project director of the BIDMC site of ProNET, an international, multi-site study developed to characterize phenotypes associated with clinical high risk for schizophrenia in adolescents and young adults.


Dr. Santorelli works with adults of all ages with diverse clinical presentations, with expertise in disorders of aging (e.g., dementia) and the neurocognitive effects of psychiatric and neurodevelopmental conditions (e.g., ADHD). Through comprehensive evaluation, she seeks to assist with the diagnostic clarity necessary to determine the most effective approaches to treatment and improve clients’ access to those interventions.
