Professional & Research Interests:
Broadly, my research aims to identify ways in which positive psychology constructs could be integrated into the treatment of PTSD and trauma-related outcomes. Currently, my research focuses on moral elevation (i.e., feeling uplifted and inspired by others' virtuous behavior) as a potential therapeutic tool for PTSD and moral injury in veterans. I am also interested in other positive psychology constructs such as gratitude, as well as other trauma-related outcomes for veterans including depression, anxiety, and substance use. In addition to my role at UT Tyler, I serve as a Clinical Psychologist and Research Investigator at the VA Center of Excellence for Research on Returning War Veterans in Waco, Texas.
