UCHealth Outpatient Psychiatry Clinic - Anschutz Medical Campus13001 E. 17th Pl Fitzsimons Bldg, 2nd Floor, West Wing , Aurora, CO 80045
Clinical Interest for Patients
My clinical interests involve identifying the function (i.e., purpose) of problem behavior and developing function-based treatments to decrease problem behavior and increase appropriate behaviors (e.g., compliance with adult instructions).
I believe in a collaborative approach to assessing and treating problem behavior, and am sure to include the patient and their family's preferences into the treatment planning process.
In my spare time, I enjoy running, hiking, reading, and being with my family.

Research Interests for Patients
My research interests focus on identifying the most effective assessment and treatment procedures for children engaging in severe problem behavior (e.g., self-injurious behavior, aggression). Additionally, I am interested in learning how to increase access and decrease costs associated with receiving these clinical services by studying the delivery of these clinical services via telehealth. My other research interests include identifying procedures for decreasing the likelihood treatment relapse will occur.
