I am a clinician working in private practice in Ann Arbor MI. I work with adolescents and adults with various disorders, and specialize in anxiety and personality disorders. As evidence base practice is my priority, I use Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and other empirically supported treatments to help foster fulfillment in the lives of the people I work with.  My research interests surround deception. More specifically, the emotion regulation properties of deception, and the development and maintenance of deception as verbal behavior.  Teaching psychology is an infinitely rewarding challenge that I am incredibly grateful to have in my life. I enjoy more than anything, fostering students’ ability to critically think about important matters in our field, and in our world.
