About me

Ashley Mason is an integrative psychologist who treats patients with sleep problems through the UCSF Osher Center Sleep Group, a medication-free behavioral therapy group that she directs.

Mason's research looks at nonpharmacological treatments for depression, food-craving experiences (including stress-induced and reward-based eating), and adherence to dietary recommendations for patients with type 2 diabetes. She also studies the use of wearable technology to predict the onset of COVID-19 infection.

Mason earned a master's degree and a doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Arizona. She completed a predoctoral clinical internship at the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System. At the UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Health, she completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Training in Research in Integrative Medicine (TRIM) Program, which is funded by the National Institutes of Health.

In addition to the sleep group, Mason directs the Sleep, Eating, and Affect (SEA) Laboratory at the UCSF Osher Center. She co-directs the UCSF Center for Obesity Assessment, Study and Treatment.
