I work full time with active-duty military members in an occupational medicine setting, providing diagnostic assessment and treatment of mood and anxiety disorders and other comorbid Axis I and Axis II conditions. I have a particular interest in the assessment and treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Our setting takes advanced practicum students, and we accepted our first intern in 2011/2012. Typically we can take only one student at a time. Students participate in all aspects of clinical work.  The setting provides the opportunity to gain cultural competence with military personnel and experience in the assessment and treatment of a variety of mood and anxiety disorders. Specialized assessment protocols are taught to the practicum students, and interns have the additional opportunity to learn treatment protocols for combat-related PTSD. A particular strength of our setting is the multi-disciplinary teamwork, not only within the mental health clinic but with the general medical treatment providers. Students may take part in ongoing research projects if they so wish.
