Graduate Student, Clinical Psychology
I received my BA in psychology and film studies from St. Olaf College in 2014 and my MA in clinical psychology from Minnesota State University, Mankato in 2017. After graduating, I worked as a research assistant and counselor at Hennepin Healthcare Research Institute. As part of two NIH funded clinical trials, I provided therapy focused on quitting smoking, managing chronic pain, and behavioral activation for depression. I joined University of Washington’s clinical psychology program in 2019.
I have conducted a wide variety of research in psychology and sexual health. My current research is focused on the intersections of sexuality, mental health, substance use, problematic sexual behavior, and LGBTQ+ health. I also have a strong interest in undergraduate teaching and mentorship.
