Research Summary

Currently, my work focuses on the integration of psychodynamic theories of development with applied behavior analytic strategies. These formulations inform the development of comprehensive positive behavioral support plans for young adults struggling with mental illness in residential, outpatient, and inpatient settings. I am also currently developing a clinical model for the conceptualization of complex cases which seeks to provide an integrated framework for the assessment and treatment of multidimensional psychiatric problems.
