Bethany Ranes, PhD
Chief Scientific Officer
Healing Track (forthcoming)
Dr. Bethany Ranes specializes in bridging neuroscience and psychology by approaching mental health from the perspective of cognitive neuroscience. Her work focuses on translational science — taking new ideas discovered in laboratories and helping turn them into effective therapies that directly benefit patients. Her current passions involve working on brain-based therapies for chronic health conditions, with a particular focus on chronic pain.
In collaboration with fellow health professionals, Dr. Ranes works to help develop neuroscience-informed interventions for behavior change and nonpharmacological treatment options for conditions like depression, anxiety, diabetes, cardiovascular issues, and autoimmune disorders. She has previously worked as a lead research scientist for the UnitedHealth Group, the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, and the U.S. Army.
She currently serves as chief scientific officer for Healing Track — a digital version of pain reprocessing therapy — and she works as a consulting scientist for organizations and companies that wish to blend emerging science about the brain with accessible healthcare solutions in order to help bring a balanced mind-body approach to modern healthcare.
