With respect to my teaching philosophy, I believe in a teaching/supervision style that is collaborative, supportive, and collegial. I believe in empowering students to think critically and ethically, and to develop their own clinical style using empirically supported treatments.
I particularly enjoy working with students in the Psy.D. program because of their diversity, energy, and openness to new experiences, and the unique life experiences they bring to the classroom and their clinical work.
My research interests include adult criminal forensic assessment and bringing experimental psychological research to bear on clinical practice; for example, how the area of mood and risky decision making can impact clinical work (i.e., disclosure of sensitive clinical information).
