About Me

As a psychologist, I specialize in the development, delivery, and dissemination of specialized clinical interventions for youth and young adults who are early in the course of a psychotic disorder or experiencing the early warning signs of a burgeoning psychotic disorder. I'm especially proud to have established and direct the Ohio State Early Psychosis Intervention Center (EPICENTER), which is one of the largest specialized clinical programs for individuals with first-episode psychosis in the United States.
