Research Interests:

I run the Psychotherapy Research or Study of Connection, Intimacy, and Loneliness (PROSOCIAL) lab. The psychotherapy component of my research emphasizes elucidation of the process of change, mechanisms of action, efficacy, and effectiveness of contemporary behavior therapies. While my research emphasizes Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP); I am also interested in furthering the evidence base of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Behavioral Activation, and process-based therapies. My research in the social domain emphasizes understanding the bidirectional association between our social lives, especially deep meaningful relationships, our mental or physical health, and clinical adjacent targets such as discrimination and stigma. My research group is very active in both of these domains and is actively implementing experiments to better understand our variables of interest. I actively work with my students to incorporate their specific interests into the research of the lab.
