Research Interests

Hanna’s research interests are in perfectionism, anxiety, and hoarding. Her Master’s thesis examined behavioural expressions of perfectionism, including identifying specific behaviours that may be associated with elevated levels of perfectionism, the contexts and domains in which they occur, their interference in daily life, and their emotional consequences. She is also interested in identifying positive and negative beliefs that people have about perfectionism. For her Dissertation, she will be investigating perceptual and emotional factors involved in problematic hoarding using virtual reality technology.

Clinical Interests

Hanna has experience in using cognitive-behavioural interventions in the treatment of a variety of disorders, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, generalized anxiety disorder, depression, bipolar disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and perfectionism. She also has experience in conducting psychodiagnostic, personality, and cognitive assessment.
