Personal Zen
Tracy A. Dennis, Ph.D. is the creator of Personal Zen (personalzen.com), a mobile and tablet app that gamifies scientifically-proven techniques to reduce stress and anxiety. She is a Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Hunter College and The City University of New York. 

Her research examines the anxious brain, how negative habits of thinking and attention fuel anxiety, and how these habits can be transformed through cognitive retraining. Personal Zen is the first in a suite of apps that will address a range of mental and physical health issues, including stress, anxiety, depression, and addiction.
