I am an associate professor with Ph.D. from Texas Tech University. I teach a variety of courses at the graduate and undergraduate level, in addition to my work in the clinic. My research interests include the development of representation in children (i.e., theory of mind abilities - ToM), the deployment of ToM abilities in children and adults, development of relationship schema (i.e., object relations, effective and ineffective), and the relationship among Rorschach assessment, ToM, and object relations.
