About Me

I joined The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center’s Department of Family and Community Medicine in July 2019. I completed both my internship and postdoctoral fellowship at the White River Junction VA Medical Center in Vermont, and worked in primary care psychology at the Chalmers P. Wylie VA Ambulatory Care Center for several years before coming to Ohio State Wexner Medical Center. Most of my professional efforts are clinical, including providing consultation for the residents at the Ohio State Primary Care Thomas Rardin and supervision of psychology fellows. I also serve as the Behavioral Health Director of the Family and Community Medicine Residency Program.

I practice integrative therapy, offering primarily cognitive-behavioral interventions combined with mindfulness, and utilizing trauma-based interventions when needed. I enjoy working alongside patients to increase awareness and understanding of patterns that may be getting in the way of their goals and applying interventions aimed at changing these thoughts and behaviors.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
