Research Interests

Katherine received her B.A. with honors in Psychology from Amherst College in 2012. While at Amherst, Katherine worked on an honors thesis examining the individual differences in the interpersonal narratives of a clinically depressed and non-depressed sample. During the summers of her college years, Katherine volunteered at a community mental health clinic in the Florida Keys, assisting with Biopsychosocial assessments and running day programs for chronically mentally ill adults.

Katherine is currently working on two studies:  1) The Coping Long Term with Attempted Suicide – Adolescents study, an adjunctive intervention program for adolescents hospitalized on an inpatient unit for a suicide event; and 2) MyT: A Novel Intervention to Improve Treatment Adherence in Bipolar Disorder study, a study aimed at evaluating the feasibility, acceptability and efficacy of an adjunctive intervention utilizing EMI to improve treatment adherence in individuals with Bipolar Disorder.

In the future, Katherine plans to attend graduate school for clinical psychology with a focus in treatment development for adolescents and young adults with mood disorders.
