About Me

As a member of the clinical psychology faculty, my approach to teaching revolves around helping students to understand and implement evidence-based practices. My primary approach is based on the philosophy and theory of acceptance and commitment therapy, and other "third generation" cognitive-behavioral practices.

Research Interests

My research interests include evidence based practices and mechanisms.
