Professional Summary

The overarching goal of my research is to assist individuals and couples experiencing chronic illness and disability maintain positive physical and mental health. This includes the adoption of positive health behaviors. I am committed to viewing clients, family members, and other caregivers within their relational context and believe that relational factors such as interpersonal coping and communication patterns represent an unexplored but potentially powerful fulcrum point for improving outcomes.
