Profile

My research has focused on men and masculinity, with a particular emphasis on men's mental health and help-seeking patterns.  Within this area, recent research has addressed help-seeking alternatives for men, non-traditional work/career roles, and men and depression.   I've also conducted research adding to the literature documenting the negative physical and psychological consequences (e.g., depression, anxiety, relationship problems) associated with adherence to the traditional male role.

A secondary interest area of mine is the use and application of technology within the practice of psychotherapy. I’ve co-published an instrument of attitudes toward online counseling services and have used this measure in a study addressing men’s perceptions toward online versus face-to-face counseling services. Earlier in my career, I published research in the areas of career counseling and the use of dreams in therapy.
