Professional Interests
My professional interests are situated within the broad domains of contextual-behavioral science and integrated health care. My research has focused on understanding how social-contextual factors and individual psychological processes contribute to various forms of human suffering and resiliency. In addition, my colleagues and I developed questionnaires assessing mindfulness and related processes. Our work has also centered on the flexible adaptation of acceptance- and mindfulness-based interventions for diverse patient populations. In my clinical practice I use an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (“ACT”) approach, along with other evidence-based treatments such as: Motivational Interviewing, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, Prolonged Exposure Therapy, and Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy. I work with patients of all ages and with a wide range of presenting concerns, including: chronic pain, anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, eating/weight concerns, and chronic health conditions such as diabetes, asthma, and cardiovascular disease. Other professional interests include; healthcare redesign and models of integrated care. I have a passion for program development/evaluation and enjoy training and consulting at all levels, particularly on topics related to ACT, interdisciplinary chronic pain rehabilitation, and behavioral health integration in medical settings.
