Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests


Dr. L-R obtained her undergraduate degree from Brown University in 1984 and her doctorate in Psychology from the University of Oregon in 1990. She has 25 years as a licensed Clinical Psychologist and has amassed over 120 peer reviewed publications in her role as a scientist and professor. The majority of these publications focus on her longstanding interests in relationship and family violence (e.g., stalking, rape, physical abuse, and the intergenerational transmission of relationship behaviors), and adolescent risky, unhealthy, suicidal, and/or life-diminishing behaviors. Her most recent research is community-based, focused on under-served and disadvantaged populations, and occurs while integrating mental and behavioral health care into primary care and school settings. In particular, implementing, evaluating, and educating others to provide evidence-based, solution-focused and resiliency-enhancing interventions is a priority for Dr. L-R.

Prior to Dr. L-R initiating and establishing the Gulf Coast Behavioral Health and Resiliency Center which she currently directs, Dr. L-R served as the Head of USA’s Youth Violence Prevention Program. She is an active member of the Gulf Region Health Outreach Program which was funded by a class action lawsuit resulting from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. Dr. L-R also participates on the Health Disparities Research Group-Community Based Participatory Research Dissemination Team which is located in USA’s Center for Healthy Communities.
