Bio/Research

I received my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Nebraska and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in forensic psychology at the University of Missouri-Kansas City Schools of Medicine and Law. In 2000 I joined the medical staff at the White River Junction, Vermont, U.S. Veterans’ Administration Medical Center and was an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Dartmouth Medical School. From 2004-2009, I was Deputy Director of the Women’s Health Sciences Division of the National Center for PTSD at the Boston VA Healthcare System and was promoted to Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine. I continue to collaborate with my colleagues at the National Center for PTSD as an Affiliate.

My passion for developing, testing, and disseminating effective psychotherapies is in keeping with our commitment to a scientist-practitioner model at Ryerson. Four broad areas of research underway in my I.M.P.A.C.T. (Investigating Methods to Prevent, Assess, and Care for Trauma) Lab include:

Testing couple-based interventions to prevent and treat posttraumatic stress disorder and associated problems

Examining interpersonal factors in trauma recovery

Gender differences in the perpetration of intimate aggression

Forensic assessment of posttraumatic reactions
