Mia Shorteno Fraser of New York City, passed away suddenly on Monday, June 12, 2017.

Born in Montreal, Canada, she moved to Delaware in 1986, and graduated from Archmere Academy. Mia received her Bachelor of Arts from Georgetown University with Majors in English and Psychology, and completed a study abroad at the University of Oxford. She was a Research Project Manager while at Georgetown under the supervision of David S. Crystal, Ph.D. for a NICHD Social Reasoning Project. She continued her education in San Diego, CA at Alliant International University where she obtained a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology. While in San Diego she was a Graduate Research Assistant under the supervision of Alan Lincoln, Ph.D. on the doctoral dissertation research of Linda Quirmbach, Ph.D., examining the use of social story interventions to improve social and game-play skills in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. She was also a Graduate Teaching Assistant for Intellectual Assessment Practicum under Elizabeth O. Lichtenberger, Ph.D. and Mark Allen, Ph.D. and a Clinical Psychology Intern at Aurora Behavioral Health Care.

She relocated to New York City and was a Graduate Research Assistant at New York University where she assisted in the research of Susan Andersen, Ph.D. and Social Psychology Doctoral Candidate Joy Xu, examining whether or not transference occurs in the context of current, on-going romantic relationships. She was a Psychology Extern at the Jewish Child Care Association in the Bronx providing individual psychotherapy to children and adolescents in the foster care system, and a Graduate Student Therapist at LIU Psychological Services Center. She had just completed an externship at the Mount Sinai St. Luke's and Mount Sinai West Addiction Institute of New York. She obtained her Masters of Science in Applied Psychology and was about to receive her Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology at LIU Post under the supervision of Eva Feindler, Ph.D., Director of the Doctoral Program. She was to begin her internship at the Brooklyn VA in August, and had decided to fulfill her dream supporting our veterans.

She is survived by her parents, Suzanne and Bob Fraser, of Greenville, DE; her sister, Bianca Fraser-Johnson (Michael), of Hockessin, DE; and her beloved nephew and niece, Fraser and Vanessa. Deeply loved and admired by family, friends, co-workers and patients, Mia will be missed by many.

Visitation will be held Tuesday, June 20th at 9am followed by the service at 10:30am at St. Joseph on the Brandywine Church (10 Old Church Road, Greenville, DE). In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made in her name to the Wounded Warriors Project (https://fundraise.woundedwarriorproject.org/RTT/Fundraising/individual/In-Memory-of-Mia-Shorteno-Fraser1).
