Positions

Overview

  • I have worked in the mental healthcare field since 2005. My experience is as an outpatient therapist, residential program manager, and Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner working with patients across the lifespan. I have found academia and clinical practice to be very complimentary activities, augmenting the other and resulting in better care and better education.

    Research Overview

  • My teaching interests include psychopharmacology, therapeutic modalities, personality disorder treatment, motivational interviewing, and behavior change. My clinical interests include survivors of trauma, caring for Veterans, skill building for patients with Borderline Personality Disorder, and behavior modification for children with ADHD. I am interested in how unique trauma pathways manifest differently among patients diagnosed with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder versus Borderline Personality Disorder.
