Her research interests involve understanding the experience and course of caregiver burden for spousal caregivers of individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI). While she strives to tailor each therapy experience to the needs of the client through a process of collaboration and goal-setting, Paige tends to operate through an ACT-informed acceptance and values-based lens. She also conceptualizes clients’ presenting concerns by considering aspects of their upbringing and current environmental context into account in order to help the client uncover the root of who they are and what might be keeping them “stuck” in their current level of functioning rather than pursuing their goals.
