I am currently pursuing a PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Arizona. My clinical training is primarily in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and emotionally focused therapy (EFT). I have experience working with couples and individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, substance use, and schizophrenia spectrum/other psychotic disorders.

Research Interests:

  • Working with couples and families at the Behavioral Health Clinic using an EFT framework.
  • Understanding the mechanisms of the link between social relationships & health 
  • How supportive relationships are established and maintained, and factors that might make those processes difficult for some (e.g., depression, rumination).
