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).

Care Philosophy
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.

Personal Interests
In my spare time, I enjoy running, hiking, reading, and being with my family.

Public Speaking
I have presented at national and regional conferences on my clinical and research interests.



Information for Referring Providers

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers
My clinical interests are the assessment and treatment of severe problem behavior (e.g., self-injurious behavior, aggression) among children diagnosed with developmental disabilities. I use functional analysis to identify behavioral function and a function-based treatment to decrease problem behavior and increase appropriate behaviors (e.g., compliance with adult instructions).

Research Interest for Referring Providers
My clinical research interests are focused on improving assessment and treatment procedures for children engaging in severe problem behaviors (e.g., self-injurious behavior, aggression). Additionally, I am interested in studying the provision of behavior analytic services via telehealth. My translational research interests are in the area of behavioral momentum theory and behavioral economics. I am interested in studying procedures to decrease treatment relapse. That is, the reoccurrence of problem behavior following successful treatment.
