Professional Interests
I joined OSU Department of Family Medicine in January 2017. I am a faculty member and director of behavioral health training for the Family Medicine Residency and Psychology Fellowship training programs. I train residents and fellows in primary care behavioral health integration at our Rardin and CarePoint East locations. In addition, I developed and coordinate two interdisciplinary programs: Health and Wellness Program for patients with any chronic health condition(s), and Chronic Pain Rehabilitation Program for patients with chronic nonmalignant pain.

My professional interests are situated within the broad domains of contextual-behavioral science and integrated health care. My research has focused on understanding how social-contextual factors and individual psychological processes contribute to various forms of human suffering and resiliency. In addition, my colleagues and I developed questionnaires assessing mindfulness and related processes. Our work has also centered on the flexible adaptation of acceptance- and mindfulness-based interventions for diverse patient populations. In my clinical practice I use an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (“ACT”) approach, along with other evidence-based treatments such as: Motivational Interviewing, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, Prolonged Exposure Therapy, and Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy. I work with patients of all ages and with a wide range of presenting concerns, including: chronic pain, anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, eating/weight concerns, and chronic health conditions such as diabetes, asthma, and cardiovascular disease. Other professional interests include; healthcare redesign and models of integrated care. I have a passion for program development/evaluation and enjoy training and consulting at all levels, particularly on topics related to ACT, interdisciplinary chronic pain rehabilitation, and behavioral health integration in medical settings.
