 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Mental Health Counseling and Behavioral Medicine Program at Boston University. Most recently, I was an Associate Professor in the Department of Counseling and Human Services at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. For the past ten years, I have worked in a private practice setting. My client base consisted largely of adolescents and young adults presenting with a variety of mental health concerns, particularly self-injurious behavior. My research interests include self-injurious behavior, suicide, trauma, secondary traumatic stress, and the unique needs of military-connected children and their families. In addition to my research endeavors, I am committed to international learning experiences. I recently co-developed an international service-learning program in San Jose, Costa Rica, assisted a colleague in a study abroad program in Dublin, Ireland and participated in a trauma- healing program for children in South Africa. In addition to international programming, I also developed online courses in human methods and family guidance.

I received my B.A. in psychology from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. Additionally, I attained my Ed.S. in School Psychology and my Ph.D. in Counselor Education at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia.
