My research interests lie in the intersection of culture and mental health. More specifically, I'm interested the role of culture in both how mental health is conceptualized and pursued. I also have a particular interest in resilience and the role of cultural strengths and values in community-based interventions with disadvantaged cultural minority groups. My current research under the guidance of Dr. Joseph Gone involves working with an urban American Indian community to develop and implement a local model of traditional healing to add to their behavioral health treatment options.
