Clinical & Teaching Interests

My academic appointment in HDFS is a teaching appointment, not a research appointment. In teaching, I specialize in the area of family studies, and while I teach a broad array of subjects, I like to focus on adult attachment in romantic relationships, grief and loss, as well as gender roles within the field of work and family. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and clinically, I specialize in emotionally focused therapy in couples and families. I also offer clinical expertise in the area of grief and loss.
