I’m a psychologist with clinical and research expertise in evidence-based care for youth and young adults who have experienced the recent onset of a psychotic disorder or are showing early warning signs of being at elevated risk to develop a psychotic illness. As part of the clinical team of The Ohio State University Early Psychosis Intervention Center (EPICENTER), I work with an interdisciplinary treatment team to provide comprehensive specialty care to young people with psychosis or at high risk for developing psychosis and their families. As a clinician-scientist, I’m dedicated to translational, patient-centered research focused on improving our understanding of psychosis and identifying effective approaches to personalize care for each individual we have the privilege of treating.
In my clinical work, I’m interested in efforts to optimize psychosocial treatments for young people with psychosis. As the first signs of psychosis tend to emerge in late adolescence or early adulthood, it’s imperative that we implement evidence-based strategies for developing treatments for individuals as they navigate the unique developmental task of transitioning to adulthood. We also know that psychosocial interventions work best when patients feel that they are active members of their treatment team and are empowered to make decisions about their care. Thus, I work collaboratively with my patients to assist them in identifying and working toward goals that are most consistent with their vision of recovery and return to valued activities of living (e.g., returning to school, engaging in work, making and keeping friends).
I’m actively engaged in clinical research investigating the outcomes of psychosocial interventions for psychosis. I’m also interested in the development and testing of novel interventions designed to comprehensively address the various needs of young people with psychosis, including those that extend beyond the goal of psychiatric symptom reduction (i.e., social skills training to promote social connectedness and exercise interventions to promote physical and psychological well-being).
