Neha G. Goyal is a psychologist who cares for patients with cancer. She uses cognitive behavioral and mindfulness-based approaches to help patients and their family members cope with the emotional and physical challenges of a cancer diagnosis. She provides care at all stages, from active treatment to survivorship and end of life.

Goyal's research interests include developing and carrying out psychological interventions to improve quality of life for patients with cancer. She has a particular interest in those with cancers of the blood.

Goyal earned her doctorate in clinical psychology from the Ohio State University. At the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System, she completed an internship approved by the American Psychological Association that included a specialization in behavioral medicine. She also completed a postdoctoral fellowship in hospice and palliative care at the VA Palo Alto. She then completed a postdoctoral research fellowship in cancer survivorship at Wake Forest School of Medicine.
