In my research, I focus on beliefs about mental health and treatment across cultures in addition to psychotherapy processes. Working in these areas, I set out to integrate concepts from the contextual model of psychotherapy, cultural psychology, and positive psychology. I also aim to accomplish my research using a pragmatic approach – that is, selecting qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods designs based on specific questions being asked.
