Graduate Student, Clinical Psychology Insomnia and Sleep Health Research Laboratory Faculty Advisor: Daniel Taylor

I received my B.S. in Psychology and Creative Writing from Carnegie Mellon University and am currently currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at the University of Arizona. I am committed to using empirically-based approaches to treatment, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). I am also involved in clinical research, which focuses on treatment predictors and adherence as well as comorbidity of sleep and mental health disorders (e.g., insomnia and depression). I believe that clinical research and application should reciprocally inform the other to provide optimal patient care and outcomes, in conjunction with considerations to the individual differences and backgrounds of each patient (e.g., cultural).

Research Interests: 

  • Treatment for insomnia and co-occurring disorders (e.g., depression)
  • Treatment adherence and dissemination
  • Transdiagnostic mechanism of sleep and circadian disturbances
