Personal Statement

I have served in varied research, clinical and teaching roles throughout youth mental health care in California, Washington and Costa Rica. My current academic focus is the utilization of outcomes research to guide state youth mental health policy, particularly for juvenile justice involved youth with both mental health and substance abuse disorders. Additional interests include Latino children’s mental health, the role of parent partners in youth behavioral healthcare, and the psychosocial management of psychotic symptoms in children.
