Professional Interests:


My interests include how research can inform clinical practice and clinical practice can inform research questions and methodology. Clinically, I am interested in the practice of empirically supported therapies, especially Dialectical Behavior Therapy, to help clients with serious and persistent mental illness, Borderline Personality Disorder and clinical disorders like Major Depression and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. In teaching, I have special interests in how environment affects individuals' and groups' behaviors, thoughts, and emotions, in best practice research for teaching, and in culturally-responsive pedagogy.

Personal Interests:

If I'm not working, I am usually spending time with my family, including my 11-year-old daughter, and friends. I enjoy listening to music, reading fiction and nonfiction (including some psychology journals- feel free to make fun of this), hiking, exploring the cultural offerings of the Twin Cities, and traveling to new places whenever possible.
