Research AreasElena's research interests include increasing the accessibility and cultural responsiveness of mental health services for youth and families from systematically marginalized communities. She intends to collaborate with communities to: (1) evaluate mental health service delivery models that increase access to care in both clinical and natural settings and (2) investigate how to best support community professionals (e.g., after-school staff, teachers, therapists) in implementing culturally-responsive EBPs.
