2020 doctoral applicantsI plan to take 1-2 students to start in the TTU Counseling Psychology program beginning next fall. If you have question, please reach out to me.
Research InterestsMy 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 [such as PTSD and TBI] as well as issues related to validity scale functioning). This is the area where a majority of my work is done. I also study mental health treatment seeking and the role of attitudinal process on service engagement and continued utilization. My work on treatment engagement is aimed at predicting factors influencing attitudes about mental health as well as predicting actual treatment behaviors (e.g., early termination, symptom reduction patterns while in therapy, therapy engagement).
