Focus of Work


My clinical research focuses on female and male sexual function, chronic pelvic pain, and pelvic pain comorbidity using an interdisciplinary approach. As a clinical psychologist with training in sex therapy and chronic pain management, I also conduct brain imaging research to understand functional and structural brain changes that characterize chronic pain states.
