I currently am the Vice Chair for the Department of Psychiatry at Houston Methodist Hospital. Overall, my clinical and research interests include mental health quality and outcomes, psychosomatic and behavioral medicine, and neuromodulation (especially for the management of chronic pain). I am also Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston (UTHealth).

Evaluating and managing personality styles and personality disorders has been an integral part of all my endeavors since the earliest days of my training.  And I have had the good fortune to have worked with Dr. John Oldham at two separate institutions and have collaborated with him on numerous research presentations and publications.

I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology and master of public health degrees from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I’ve held positions in clinical psychology and behavioral medicine at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, Baylor College of Medicine and The Menninger Clinic in Houston, Texas.
