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 military and veteran relevant issues (e.g., both substantive clinical presentation on issues related to PTSD, TBI, and other concerns as well as validity scale functioning). This is the area where a majority of my work is done.  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 applying to graduate school for the Fall 2019 maturation cycle, I am interested in accepting students and would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
