I am a member of the faculty in the doctoral training program in School Psychology at The University of Texas at Austin. Most of the courses I teach and the students I work with are within this program. I also teach an undergraduate class on adolescent development, a course that pre-service secondary education students and psychology majors often find particularly interesting. I consider myself a clinician and a researcher, and I also love to teach. It is my sincere desire that my research is relevant to school-based practitioners, psychologists, and education and mental health professionals within the juvenile justice system. My training is broad, bridging school psychology and child clinical areas. While I do provide and supervise individual therapy for children and adolescents from a cognitive-behavioral and interpersonally-grounded perspective, I believe that change for many struggling children and adolescents occurs by addressing the systems, such as families, schools, and juvenile justice. Through my courses and my research I provide others with information and training in order to make that happen.
