I am a licensed clinical psychologist. My interests include clinical-community psychology, global mental health, serious mental illness, interventions for mental health in low and middle-income countries, and mental health and social processes related to conflict. Ultimately, through my research, teaching, and applied work, I seek to empower individuals, communities, and organizations to answer the questions that are important to them so that they can effectively change themselves and their communities. When not working, I enjoy eating, traveling, running, and spending time with family.

Teaching Interests

When I teach, I seek to fulfill three main goals: (1) enhancing students’ ability to critically evaluate information including psychological theory and research, (2) providing an environment where students can learn fundamental principles of psychology and the application of psychology to the real world, and (3) facilitating students’ professional and personal growth.

Research Interests

I greatly enjoy engaging in meaningful and applied community-based research with conflict-affected populations (and those who provide mental health services to these individuals) and individuals affected by psychosis. Additionally, I am interested in rigorous program evaluation and program development with community-based organizations.

Consulting Interests

In my clinical work, I seek to empower individuals and groups to acheive their goals and objectives. I am interested in using broadly behavioral, particularly contextual cognitive and behavioral approaches, to help individuals live lives of flourishing.
