Summary

I received my BA in history from Harvard College, and my MA and PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Minnesota. I further completed my predoctoral internship and postdoctoral fellowship with a focus on trauma from the Minneapolis VA Healthcare System.

I am a clinical psychologist specializing in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and trauma-focused therapy (Prolonged Exposure, Cognitive Processing Therapy) for adolescents and adults. I co-lead the DBT Clinic in the Psychiatry Outpatient Clinic, where I also provide education, training, and supervision for trainees. My research interests examine the neural mechanisms of personality functioning.
