Research Interests

I am interested in how families best adapt to and support children with developmental disabilities. More specifically, I am interested in the impact of family involvement in mental health interventions for children with autism spectrum disorder, and what particular family variables contribute to the effectiveness of an intervention. With this, I am looking at how parent mental health, parenting, and the parent-child relationship are impacted by involvement in their child's therapy.
