My research interests broadly center on the systemic impacts of trauma and traumatic stress and the implementation of trauma-informed practice and care among marriage and family therapists. Currently, my research centers on the embodied experiences of pre-licensed marriage and family therapists during and following client trauma disclosure. Additionally, my research interests include the experiences of Southeast Asian individuals, families, and systems exposed to trauma and the development and implementation of culturally responsive therapy practices and mental health services for this population.
