    Eve Lasswell, Psy.D.
    Clinical Psychologist
    Assistant Professor of Psychiatry

    Eve Lasswell, Psy.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist who primarily treats adults with substance use disorders and co-morbid conditions. She also works with patients struggling to manage posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, role transitions, and interpersonal difficulties.

    She is part of our Substance Treatment and Recovery (STAR) program, which uses a harm-reduction approach to provide care for all stages of recovery from substance use disorders. She is also familiar with abstinence-based models and seeks to tailor treatment to the unique needs of her individual patients.

    Dr. Lasswell has experience with a number of patient populations, including those with ethnic backgrounds different from her own, LGBTQIA+ folks, and current/former members of the US military.

    She has training in the delivery of evidence-based treatments for a variety of conditions, including:
    • Substance Use Disorders using cognitive behavioral therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
    • PTSD using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
    • PTSD using Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
    • Anxiety and depression using cognitive behavioral therapy

    Her research interests include patient outcomes in substance use disorder treatment and improving access to mental health services for the historically underserved.

    Dr. Lasswell completed a postdoctoral fellowship in addiction treatment at the Veterans Affairs Salt Lake City Health Care System. She earned her doctorate in clinical psychology at Indiana State University, and completed her doctoral internship at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital.
