Biography

I am proud to be a graduate of the University of Oregon Counseling Psychology doctoral program, where I have served as a faculty member since 2003. I have been working with adult survivors of partner violence and their families since 1996. It has been important to me throughout my career to identify how counseling psychologists can reduce families' and communities' risk for violence. 
 
The focus of my scholarship has been examining the impact of partner violence on the work experiences and vocational development of girls and women, and developing community-based preventive interventions to address that impact. This line of research has led to the development and testing of  ACCESS [www.access-dv.org], a selected preventive intervention designed to address women’s mental health, trauma healing, and vocational needs simultaneously in an effort to lower rates of violence revictimization and increase vocational persistence and economic stability over time. 
 
I also study family members' and friends' response to loved ones who are experiencing partner violence and how strengths of Pacific Islander families and communities, in particular, can be used to more effectively reduce individuals' risk for violence.
