My primary clinical, research, and training interests center around personality disorders, with a focus on borderline personality disorder and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I am particularly interested in adaptations of DBT, including DBT modified for the day hospital setting, for comorbid borderline personality disorder and substance use disorders, and for children with suicidal and self-injurious behaviors. My other research interests include trauma, PTSD, mindfulness, and emotion regulation.
