Do you have a child between the ages of 14-17?

A scientific team (consisting of a research assistant and a researcher/clinical psychologist) at McLean Hospital is investigating brain network activity and emotion regulation in teens. They are recruiting healthy teens, and also teens who have been feeling depressed or down. Your teen may be eligible!

Teens will answer questions about their thoughts and feelings. Teens will also undergo an fMRI brain scan. Parent permission is required.

The team is hoping to better understand depression and what factors may put some adolescents more at risk for developing depressive symptoms. For more information, please contact Dr. Emily Belleau at 617-855-4245 or

Common App essay coaching

Recently graduated from Harvard College, Isabel Alexander is available to coach high school seniors in writing their Common App essays this fall. She loves stories — not just those in books, but those we keep inside us; ones that inform the way we make connections and experience the world.

Putting these stories on paper, though, can be daunting — especially when you have to fit your life story into 650 words that aren’t too simple, too pretentious, or (worse yet) cliché.  To boot, the Common App essay seems to beg for a single life narrative.  What if you don’t have one?

Whether you have a solid draft of your college essay or no clue where to begin, she’ll help you brainstorm ways to tell your personal story — the unconventional way.

Credentials include:

  • Highest score (5) on AP English Language and Composition test
  • Perfect score (800) on SAT Writing section
