A CU Medicine provider.

My work with patients revolves around a central tenet that people do not develop substance abuse and other psychiatric conditions in a vacuum. It is important to acknowledge this, identify what parts of a patient’s life are related to their condition(s), and how skills can be applied within these contexts.

Clinical interest for patients

My clinical work focuses on substance use disorders, as well as mindfulness-based interventions for substance use and a wide range of other conditions (e.g., depression, anxiety).

Research interest for patients

My research program consists of two broad aims addressing the causes and effects of substance use: 1) understanding the shared mechanisms of heavy substance use and co-occurring conditions; and 2) disentangling familial confounds from the causes and effects of substance use disorders.
