My graduate training included a specialization in Behavioral Medicine, which continues to be my primary area of interest. I have focused my clinical and research work in the area of HIV/AIDS, including primary and secondary prevention efforts, and am a Co-Investigator on a federally-funded NIMH R01 study, investigating the efficacy of an HIV prevention intervention for people with serious and persistent mental illness, in collaboration with Dr. Stephen Brady. I am particularly interested in the effects of trauma and PTSD on women and how these affect risk behaviors. Also of interest is mental health and biomedical ethics. I am active clinically, providing assessment and intervention in the Adult Behavioral Health Clinic at Boston Medical Center. I serve as the Curriculum Chair in the MHCBM Program, advise students, and teach a variety of our courses.
I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Bradley University in Peoria, IL, my master’s, and doctoral degrees from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio.
