I am primarily interested in the role of religious and spiritual variables in managing difficulties in life, such as their interaction with and use in counseling interventions. One application of this has been my work in the exploration of interventions to promote healing through forgiveness. The psychological correlates of comparative religious practices is also intriguing to me. I am fascinated by how people manage their religious and spiritual beliefs and faith in a pluralistic world, and the resulting psychological implications.
