My general research interests center around couples and families affected by post traumatic stress. More specifically, my clincal and research interests focus on couples and famillies in which at least one member is a first responder professional who experiences repeated exposure to traumatic events (e.g., law enforcement, firefighters, EMTS).
I am currently the Graduate Assistant for the ASPIRE Clinic as well as the Marriage and Family Therapy Certificate Program. I also practice therapy at the ASPIRE Clinic where I serve individuals, couples, and families under the supervision of licensed clinical faculty.
