Research Areas

Anya’s research interests include addressing systemic accessibility barriers to mental health services for Spanish-speaking Latinx families and, more broadly, for historically marginalized communities. She is most interested in examining how acute anxiety, stress, and trauma intersect with immigration experiences in the U.S. She aims to center culture, race, and language, in conjunction with community feedback in developing relevant evidence-based treatment modalities.
