She developed programming for individual and group treatment for adolescent sexual abuse and trauma survivors; children of alcoholics/drug addicts; children and youth experiencing grief; and universal, targeted and selective prevention programming for at-risk youth in school settings around a range of problem areas including suicide, substance use, and school drop-out.

Her main areas of academic study are related to youth, youth services, youth development, and resilience. Her dissertation research looked at a high-risk sample of prenatally substance-exposed youth, and the relationship of risk, protective factors and gender to risky health behaviors in adolescence.
