Research Interests
I am a registered psychologist in the province of Alberta, and as such, my research interests directly relate to experiences of individuals working to balance suffering and thriving. I am particularly interested in the positive impact trauma can have, especially violence and conflict related traumas. I am also interested in how psychological clinicians develop. In particular I am interested in the impact of therapist training on student well-being, as well as ways that well-being can be fostered throughout their training.
