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. Specifically, I am interested in the development and implementation of culturally responsive therapy practices and mental health services in Southeast Asia among individuals, families, and systems exposed to trauma.
