I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist in the state of Ohio. I received my PhD at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) in Clinical Psychology, Health track. I completed my clinical internship at the Ohio State University in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health then completed a clinical fellowship at OSU in the Department of Family Medicine.
Research, Education and Clinical Interests
As a Clinical Psychologist, I provide evidence-based care for mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, OCD, and trauma. I specialized in clinical health psychology during my graduate training, which means I also provide care for individuals living with chronic medical issues, such as chronic pain, insomnia, and obesity. My research has focused on medical providers’ decision-making for patients with chronic pain, specifically looking at the influence of patients’ gender, race, and ethnicity on their pain management decisions.
