CBT Gateway
Gateway to state of the art CBT

Luana Marques, Ph.D.


Dr. Marques is a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Massachusetts and an expert in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy(CBT) for a wide range of psychiatric disorders.

She received her B.S. in Psychology from the State University of New York at Buffalo (SUNY Buffalo) in 2001, as well as her Masters and Ph.D. at SUNY Buffalo in Clinical Psychology in 2005 and 2007, respectively.  She completed an internship and postdoctoral fellowship in the CBT track at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and was subsequently hired as a post-doctoral fellow in the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Clinic & Research Unit at MGH. Currently, Dr. Marques is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and the Director of the Community Psychiatry Program for Implementation and Dissemination of Evidence-Based Treatments (PRIDE). 

In addition to her extensive clinical expertise, Dr. Marques also has an active research career at MGH. Dr. Marques' primary research project is an NIH-funded study that examines implementation of Cognitive Processing Therapy for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in diverse community settings. Additionally, Dr. Marques was awarded a MGH Clinician Teacher award to teach cognitive processing therapy (CPT) to community mental health workers who are treating patients diagnosed with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

In the past, Dr. Marques served as a co-investigator and study therapist on a Department of Defense funded Randomized Trial of Sertraline, Prolonged Exposure, and their Combination for PTSD in OEF/OIF veterans as well as three NIMH funded clinical trials examining the enhancement of CBT for Social Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, and Complicated Grief.  With the support of an ARRA minority supplement, she began to work closely with minority populations at MGH community mental clinics, where she has become increasingly aware of the substantial implementation gap in empirically supported psychotherapeutic treatments for anxiety disorders.  

Dr. Marques is fluent in Portuguese and Spanish, which has allowed her to gain valuable clinical experience with minority populations.  For more information about Dr. Marques, please see below.
