One in five Canadians suffer from chronic pain that lasts months to years and interferes with social relationships, school/work progress and emotional well-being. Frequently, chronic pain co-occurs with mental health disorders, such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The focus of her research is to unpack why some individuals develop chronic pain and co-occurring mental health concerns and to design ways of treating these co-occurring conditions with patients. She conducts research in individuals across the lifespan (children, adolescents, and adults). Her research program incorporates a rigorous scientific multi-method approach, her clinical expertise as a clinical psychologist as well as integrated patient engagement. Specifically, she uses clinical skills and translational research methodologies that span the knowledge-to-action continuum (primary research studies, knowledge synthesis, development, and implementation) to close the research to practice gap. With this approach, we will be able to identify patients in need of intervention and build targeted interventions for patients to receive help at the right time.
