Summary

I received my BA in Liberal Studies from the University of Notre Dame, IN. I completed both my masters and PhD in clinical psychology from Duke University, NC. I further completed a postdoctoral fellowship in substance use disorder treatment from Brown University/Providence VA Medical Center, RI.

I am a clinical psychologist who specializes in assessment and treatment for individuals with substance use disorders. I co-lead the Addiction Medicine Program and provide expertise in the Early Stage Mood Disorders clinic, through which I provide training and supervision for psychiatry residents and psychology practicum students.

My research focuses on alcohol and cannabis co-use, including understanding how cannabis use impacts relapse to alcohol among patients with an alcohol use disorder. I also examine how cannabis use impacts treatment outcomes for mood, anxiety, and other drug use disorders.

Within the department, I am a member of the Clinical Council, and Deputy Director of the Behavioral Sciences Division.
