Modalities can include individual, family, and group therapy. I use behavioral health interventions that are focused on the mind/body connection, with a preference for empirically supported treatments, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, motivational interviewing, and skills training. My research interests are applied clinical research to assess efficacy of treatment programs and identify ways to improve quality of care provided to patients and families, factors that promote resilience, factors associated with post-traumatic growth, and patient and family factors associated with clinical presentation, response to treatment, and treatment outcome.
