Sexual violence and sexual functioning.


Carey was born and raised in Santa Barbara, California where she developed a strong interest in sexual assault prevention and education. Carey completed her Bachelors degree at New York University where she studied urban sociology and Spanish. After working in urban environmental education, Carey returned to school to study psychology. She graduated from Hunter College, CUNY with a Masters in General Psychology in the spring of 2011.

Carey’s research interests focus on the impact of childhood sexual abuse on adult women’s sexual functioning. She is especially interested in treatments that can speed recovery for survivors and improve their relationship to their own sexuality. Carey is also interested in the role of personal agency in the sex lives of women.

For three years Carey volunteered as a rape crisis advocate in New York City. Carey has also been involved in sexual assault prevention and education programs including Take Back the Night, and Voices in Prevention Peer Education Program. Carey hopes to continue to advocate for the rights of survivors of sexual assault through her research in the Sexual Psychophysiology Lab at UT Austin.

Carey is currently completing her clinical psychology internship at the South Texas Veterans Affairs Health Care System in San Antonio, TX in Primary Care/Behavioral Medicine.
