How I became Interested in Psychology

I started working on Dr. Michael Lambert's research team during my undergraduate studies. From there I pursued graduate training in Clinical Psychology. While I still remain clinically active (I maintain a very small private practice), my primary interests have been in the training of students in therapeutic skills.

Current Research and Professional Projects

My research interests include:

  • Therapy outcome and process research
  • Clinical judgment and decision making
  • Client deterioration (getting worse) in therapy
  • How therapists determine client progress
  • Clinical use of therapy outcome measures
  • What makes some therapists more effective than others
