Research Summary

Therapeutic relationships—broadly considered—are the heart of my passions in research. Whether investigating observer mood in empathic accuracy, client perception of acceptance in counseling, or peer support in cancer survivorship, I am continually inspired by the capacity to connect with others in ways that can ameliorate distress and galvanize meaningful action. While squarely in the realm of clinical psychology, the subject also converges with sociology, anthropology, medicine, and literature, and I am fortunate to have collaborated with authorities from all these disciplines. Correspondingly I feel most enthusiastic when employing mixed methods designs, integrating data from "numbers to narratives," and assessing where the kernels of findings inform stories of personal and collective significance.
