Summary

I received my BA in psychology from the University of Wisconsin in Eau-Claire, graduating summa cum laude. I received my MA in counseling psychology from Bethel University in St. Paul, MN. I completed my PsyD in counseling psychology at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, MN. I then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in clinical psychology and research in the Child and Adolescent Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program here at the University of Minnesota.

I am a child psychologist with an interest in adolescent depression and psychotherapy. I provide clinical services to children, adolescents and adults. I also provide psychotherapy to parents with their own mental health concerns and parents of children experiencing mental illness. I am trained in Interpersonal Psychotherapy for depressed adolescents (IPT-A) and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), including Exposure and Response Prevention.

My research interests include developing and implementing effective treatments for adolescent depression, maternal mental health, and promoting positive parenting practices. I am a co-investigator for the RADLab (Research in Adolescent Depression), which aims to advance understanding of the biology of mood disorders in adolescents, and to test how investigational treatments may work to restore health in young people.

Within the University of Minnesota Medical School, I provide training and supervision for clinical psychology graduate students and psychiatry residents and fellows.
