Dr. Ledley has always felt a desire to help others. After earning her degrees, she spent several years on faculty at the University of Pennsylvania at the Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety. Since 2006, Dr. Ledley has been in private practice in the suburbs of Philadelphia where she primarily works with children, adolescents, and adults with anxiety disorders.
Dr. Ledley’s research has focused on the nature and treatment of anxiety. She has published over 50 scientific papers and book chapters, four academic books, and a book for new moms called “Becoming a Calm Mom: How to Manage Stress and Enjoy the First Year of Motherhood”. Her book “Making Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Work,” soon to be published in its Third Edition, is a best-seller in the field of clinical psychology. It has been translated into several languages and is used as a textbook in many clinical psychology training programs in the United States and Canada. She is also currently working on a worry workbook for kids for New Harbinger’s Instant Help Series.
Dr. Ledley loves teaching about stress and anxiety. When she was approached by Educational Services to share her knowledge and offer greater opportunities to ES's students, she knew it was a perfect fit.
