Using evidence-based practices, with an emphasis on child and family strengths and resilience, Dr. Vrieze is committed to providing culturally affirming care to diverse patients and families, including racially and ethnically diverse individuals, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and other historically marginalized groups. She sees patients at the University of Minnesota Health West Building Psychiatry Clinic and University of Minnesota Physicians’ Behavioral Health Clinic for Families. Dr. Vrieze is an assistant professor at the University of Minnesota Medical School Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences - Child and Adolescent Division, where she co-directs the Early Childhood Clinic. She is broadly interested in developmental psychopathology, namely, the myriad biological and environmental factors that contribute to the onset and trajectory of mental health problems in young children. Her research has focused on attachment and the reflective capacity of depressed mothers to attune to the emotional needs of their young children. In addition, Dr. Vrieze is interested in the development of community-based interventions for younger children identified as at-risk for developing emotional-behavioral problems.
