Interests/Hobbies: My clinical interests include treatment of mood and anxiety disorders, especially with women across the lifespan (with a focus on the perinatal and post-partum period). My research focuses on understanding how unique individual characteristics of patients informs response to evidence-based treatments for anxiety and depression. I am also interested in implementation and dissemination of evidence-based treatments. When not engaged in clinical practice and research, I enjoy hiking and camping in the mountains, traveling abroad, reading books, and Yoga/running.

Why I chose Christiana Care and Delaware: I was interested in completing internship at ChristianaCare because of the communal and supportive environment for learning, practice, and growth. I also am very interested in ChristianaCare's integration of psychological services within medical practice with a particular focus in supporting women's wellness and mental health.
