My work aims to improve the accessibility and quality of school-based mental health services. I’m also broadly interested in youth and caregiver mental health across settings, including integrated and coordinated care. You can learn more about my lab’s research and practice interests by checking out our lab website. I hold a PhD in Combined Clinical, Counseling, and School Psychology from the University of California at Santa Barbara. I’m a past Editor-in-Chief for Assessment for Effective Intervention, a current Associate Editor for School Psychology Review, and a previous recipient of the Lightner Witmer Award (2017) for early-career contributions to school psychology. To date, I have published 70+ scholarly works that have received 3,600+ citations. Prior to coming to USU in January 2018, I was faculty in the Psychology Department at Louisiana State University for 5.5 years. If you’re interested in potentially joining my lab as a PhD student or getting involved as an undergrad RA, please read through my page with info for prospective students prior to reaching out.
