Clinical Professor; Director, Center for Child & Family Psychology
What I do
I am a Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychology and the Director of the Center for Child and Family Psychology (CCFP). At the CCFP, I provide supervision for comprehensive assessment cases and for therapy cases involving internalizing disorders, externalizing disorders, and eating disorders.
Clinical work, research
A professional value of mine is helping to ensure that clinical research and service provision thoughtfully include people from traditionally under-served backgrounds. As Clinic Director, I work to make our services as accessible as possible for clients from a broad range of backgrounds and encourage our student clinicians to sensitively consider the impacts of intersecting identities and values when engaging in clinical work. I am also personally increasing my proficiency in Spanish and understanding of Latino culture as it relates to mental health because I hope that our clinic can expand our services to Spanish-speaking clients in the near future.
