I grew up in Colorado, and I received a B.A. in psychology from the University of Colorado at Boulder, followed by an M.S. and Ph.D. in psychology from Texas A&M University. I completed my internship and postdoctoral fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.
I have provided therapy in a variety of settings, including several outpatient clinics, hospitals, a counseling center for medical students, residential treatment centers, and even a federal prison. I have experience conducting therapy and assessments for individuals, couples, families, and groups; and I have worked with adults, adolescents, and children.
I have also worked on a variety of research projects covering topics such as evaluating how well couples' therapy works in VA hospitals, understanding couples' descriptions of relationship problems, and exploring the interaction between women's body image and their romantic relationships. This last topic was the focus of both my master's thesis and my doctoral dissertation. I have served as a therapist for two research studies - one for couples about to have their first baby, and another for people who struggled with emotion regulation. My research has been published in various peer-reviewed psychology journals.
I also enjoy being involved in the Denver psychology community. I am a member of the Colorado Psychological Association and I volunteer for Mental Health America of Colorado.
