Academic Interests

My academic and research interests include increasing multicultural consciousness among mental health and school counselors, improving access to counseling services to marginalized communities, and overall counselor development. Additionally, I am interested in the effects of racism, power, and privilege in America on the mental health and wellness of people of color from a trauma based perspective. More specifically, from a trauma based lens, my academic interests include exploring how racism, power, privilege, and systems of oppression effect patterns of communication, conflict resolution, the development of interpersonal and intrapersonal skills, emotional intimacy and how men and women of color experience romantic relationships and family in America.
