I have been a member of the IMPACT Lab since the Fall of 2010 when I came to Ryerson after completing my Master’s in Trauma Studies at New York University. My primary interests are traumatic stress reactions and  interpersonal relationships. I am currently working on a longitudinal study investigating interpersonal and individual factors that contribute to and protect against developing PTSD after a traumatic event. I am also interested in emotional regulation and self-harm, as well as understanding the mechanisms underlying efficacious PTSD treatments. For my dissertation, I am developing and testing a model of clinical consultation for clinicians learning to deliver the Cognitive Processing Therapy protocol.
