I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Lafayette College. I primarily teach courses related to psychopathology and clinical/counseling psychology, although I also regularly teach our introductory course and a class on psychology and the media. My research interests center broadly on the assessment and treatment of mood disorders and related concerns. I am particularly interested in cognitive and emotional processing in mood disorders, perinatal mental health (especially among new parents of multiples), and the development of psychosocial therapies to address depression, bipolar disorder, stress, and anxiety. I frequently use ecological momentary assessment and ecological momentary intervention paradigms in my work.
I received my BA in Psychology from Cornell University in 2001, and my MA and PhD in Clinical Psychology from American University in 2006 and 2009, respectively. I completed my predoctoral internship (2008-2009) and an NIMH T32 Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (2009-2012) at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. Following receipt of an NIMH K23 Career Development Award grant in 2012, I was appointed to the faculty at Brown as an Assistant Professor (Research). I moved to Pennsylvania in 2014 to join the faculty at Lafayette College. I am currently licensed as a clinical psychologist in the state of Pennsylvania, and I have provided clinical services in a broad range of settings in Washington, DC, Virginia, Rhode Island, and Pennsylvania.
