About Me

I am currently in my fifth year of the Psychological Clinical Science Ph.D. program at North Dakota State University. I received my B.A. degrees in Psychology and Elementary Education from Jamestown College (now University of Jamestown) in 2012 and am originally from Sheyenne, ND. I obtained my M.S. in Psychology from NDSU in 2015 and officially advanced to doctoral candidacy in the fall of 2016. I am now in the process of applying for my clinical internship.

Research and Clinical Interests

My primary research interests involve the prevention of depression, investigation of vulnerability factors for depression, and the use of self-help treatments for depression in college populations.  I also conduct research with colleagues in my lab on mindfulness and  the influence that emotion has on attention. My dissertation is looking at the effects of reattribution training and behavioral activation on cognitive vulnerabilities for depression and general functioning outcomes.

My training has consisted of Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Exposure Therapy, Transdiagnotstic Treatment, Motivational Interviewing, suicide risk assessment,  and various neuropsych and psychodiagnostic assessments. I completed two years of practicum at a non-profit community mental health clinic seeing clients of all ages with various backgrounds and disorders including anxiety, depression, borderline personality disorder, schizophrenia and post-traumatic stress disorder. I am currently at the Neuropsychiatric Research Institute as part of the assessment team assessing potential participants for a clinical trial for a binge eating disorder treatment and for a study on bariatric surgery and alcohol use. I also completed a practicum at the NDSU Counseling Center seeing NDSU students presenting with anxiety and/or depression.
