I'm a Licensed Psychologist and Health Service Provider in Psychology. I provide psychotherapy to adults and adolescents, as well as psychological and neuropsychological assessments for all ages. I utilize a collaborative approach that is firmly rooted in the integration of evidence-based practices to address a wide variety of presenting concerns. I have a special interest in interventions for depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, nonsuicidal self-injury, suicide prevention, emotion dysregulation, personality disorders and eating disorders.
I earned my PhD in Clinical Psychology from Oklahoma State University. In addition to my practice at Mind and Spirit Counseling Center, I'm also an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience at Drake University where I teach courses in psychopathology, clinical psychology, statistics, and introductory psychology, as well as maintain an active research program that explores personality-related maladaptive behaviors (e.g., nonsuicidal self-injury), clinical utility, diagnostic classification, as well as personality’s role in psychopathology and problems in living. I'm a member of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies, the International Society for the Study of Self-Injury, the Iowa Psychological Association and other professional organizations.
