    My research focuses on cognitive behavioral therapies for PTSD, depression, and anxiety disorders. I am interested in better understanding how processes of change during treatment, including cognitive and emotional processing, relate to treatment outcomes. Through my research, I aim to better understand the potential mechanisms and moderators of change in these treatments in order to ultimately improve treatment efficacy.
