Research Interests

My research focuses on two areas. I am interested in personality measurement using the MMPI-2/MMPI-2-RF, particularly factors influencing measurement of veteran relevant issues (e.g., PTSD, TBI, comorbid psychiatric and medical concerns, or validity scale functioning).  I also study mental health stigma and the role that this attitudinal process has on treatment engagement and service utilization. My work on stigma is aimed at not only predicting its influence on attitudes about mental health, but also its relationship with actual treatment behaviors (e.g., early termination, symptom reduction patterns while in therapy, therapy engagement) and its influence on physical health.

If you are interested in applying to graduate school for a Fall 2018 maturation, I am interested in accepting students and would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
