I am a child and adolescent clinical psychologist licensed in both Minnesota and North Dakota. I completed my B.S. in Psychology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and my MA and PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of North Dakota. I completed an APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship at the Youth Opportunity Center, a residential treatment facility for youth with serious emotional and behavioral difficulties. In addition, I completed a fellowship in clinical child psychology at the University of Minnesota with a focus on development and implementation of evidence-based intensive outpatient programs for adolescents with depression and children with disruptive behavior disorders.

My training and experience have focused on providing evidence-based assessment and interventions with children and adolescents in a variety of settings including schools, community mental health, intensive outpatient programs, partial hospitalization, and residential treatment. Primary treatment modalities are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

At MIDB (Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain), I work with youth (and their families) who have severe emotion regulation issues, which lead to impulsive behaviors such as suicidal behavior or self-harm. I also provide individual, family, and group therapy for adolescents with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and ADHD.

My primary goal is to help strengthen the DBT program for adolescents and families. I aim to improve implementation and assessment of treatment outcomes and to work to disseminate DBT for adolescents more widely. As part of my position, I am involved in supervision of future clinicians and plan to be involved in research related to treatment outcomes and interpersonal factors that influence youth depression, suicidal ideation, and self-injurious behavior.
