Rural Psychology, Cultural Diversity Issues
Every person is diverse in their own way. I believe establishing a therapeutic relationship and working together with the patient to find what works for them, are key components for working toward healthier living.
A large amount of my clinical experience has been with rural populations of varying ages and difficulties. I’ve also had a great amount of experience with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) on an individual and group basis. Previous areas of research include rural practice, diversity issues, personality characteristics, behavior problems, and anxiety.
