Research Interests

My research focuses on psychological and emotional effects of trauma on young children and their families. This exploration includes: (a) determining empirically tested culturally-sensitive clinical interventions for pediatric counseling, (b) addressing effects of cultural hegemony in education, (c) investigating the ecological impact of traumatic stress on diverse communities, and (d) the development of multicultural social justice competencies in research methodologies and procedures.
