Clinical Interests:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) & Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for the treatment of chronic pain conditions.

Research Interests:
I am primarily interested in the social aspect of chronic pain conditions. More specifically, I am currently looking at the specific qualities of pain senders (persons in pain) and observers (persons interacting with those in pain) that impact the treatment and support received.
