Research Interests: My research examines how early attachment experiences impact the development of empathy over the lifespan. I also study therapist characteristics, including empathy, that relate to patient outcomes in psychotherapy. I currently work with Dr. Sarah Short and Dr. Simon Goldberg on their respective studies about the impact of poverty on brain development and psychotherapist facilitative interpersonal skills.
