I am a clinical psychologist, mental health services researcher, and adjunct professor. I have worked in a range of clinical settings including outpatient clinics, community mental health centers, inpatient settings, and as a consultation liaison in primary care. I completed specialized training at the Master- and doctoral-level in clinical geropsychology and have worked with older adults and their families in the community and in long-term care facilities.
My current research and evaluation activities focus on recovery-oriented care and treatment outcomes for adults with serious mental illnesses and the integration of primary care and mental health services. My other research interests include suicide prevention, the role of sleep quality in physical and mental health, and active self-management programs for chronic illnesses.
For the last 15 years, I have also enjoyed teaching a range of psychology, counseling, and research courses to undergraduate and graduate students.
