I’m a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in cognitive behavioral therapy for anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts and behaviors. I share mental health research with the public through writing, podcasting, and social media. I’m the author of The Suicidal Thoughts Workbook, a science-guided self-help book that will be available in July 2021. I also share psychological science as a podcast co-host and Psychology Today blog writer. I enjoy opportunities to speak to universities, therapists, and the community about mental health through trainings and presentations.
Before switching to a primarily clinical career, I was a psychology professor who taught courses about child and adult mental health, mentored graduate students, and published disordered eating and suicidal behavior research. My clinical scientist approach is informed by my graduate school training at Florida State University and my predoctoral internship at the University of Chicago Medical Center.
