- I am a clinical psychologist by training and a health services research. I investigate ways in which to improve social support and social relationships in order to improve treatment outcomes for PTSD and related mental and physical health conditions.
The ability to conduct research with the potential to improve health care delivery and outcomes for millions of Veterans is an honor and a real privilege. I am continually inspired by the conversation between my clinical work with Veterans and my research endeavors. I’m also inspired by and grateful for my outstanding colleagues.
I hope to move the needle on emphasizing interpersonal and community connectedness in our treatment of chronic mental and physical health conditions. In my ideal world, isolated or lonely Veterans would be able to speak to any provider and be confident that their social network and experience would considered and addressed as a core component of their care.
