Personal Statement 

My primary focus is psychology education.  As director of the Internship Program in Clinical Psychology, I am committed to working with my colleagues to provide the highest quality training experience for our next generation of psychologists.   My clinical and clinical teaching efforts include the broad areas of child and pediatric psychology, but as co-chief of the Mood Disorders Clinic at the Riley Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Clinic, and co-director of the Tics, Anxiety and Compulsions clinic (TAC clinic) I spend a significant amount of time working with those subpopulations.  I supervise multiple weekly training clinics in which child psychiatry fellows, psychology post-doctoral fellows, interns and practicum learn to implement evidence-based interventions with children, adolescents and their families.
