Biographical Info

I was born, raised, and continue to live in southern Connecticut. I received my bachelor's degree in Psychology and English from Colgate University in 1984 and then went to graduate school for Clinical Psychology at the University of Delaware where I received my master's in 1988 and doctorate in 1990. After completing my internship at Yale Medical School, I joined the faculty in the Department of Psychiatry as a Clinical Instructor and am now a Professor. In addition to my research, teaching, and faculty development responsibilities at Yale, I have held various clinical administrative leadership positions in The APT Foundation, one of the largest providers of substance abuse treatment in the state.
