“My research is focused on programs to help cancer survivors cope with uncertainty and fear of recurrence along with support in the return to work process following cancer. My interest in this field began during my PhD, when I developed a supportive therapy to help women at high risk of inherited breast or ovarian cancer cope with their feelings of uncertainty about their future cancer risk.”
