I am currently an Associate Professor of Clinical Family Medicine and serve as the Behavioral Health Lead and Director of Behavioral Medicine for the OSU Family Medicine Residency Program. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Baldwin-Wallace College (Berea, Ohio; 1998); a Master of Science in Education from Florida State University (Tallahassee, Florida; 2000); Master of Arts (2004) and Doctor of Psychology (2006) degrees from University of Hartford (West Hartford, Connecticut); and a Master of Public Health (2016) degree from Columbia University (New York, New York). I completed a Predoctoral Fellowship at Yale School of Medicine and a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Psychology at Yale University. My research interests have broadly focused on delineating psychopathological components of anxiety relevant to classification of specific anxiety disorders and identification of common comorbid conditions. More recently, my research has centered on individual differences in emotion regulation strategies and treatment outcomes among various anxiety disorders. By delineating differential regulatory processes associated with various emotional experiences, my research aims to contribute to clarification of the diagnostic overlap among these disorders.
