During his doctoral internship at Southern Illinois University, areas of concentration included the
treatment of severe personality disorders using Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and conducting
marriage/couples therapy. Nate also provided group and individual therapy through a community
drug court program for individuals struggling with addiction.
Additionally, Nate began participating in psychological research as an undergraduate student at
Brigham Young University, and has conducted research in the areas of war trauma, personality style
