My research interests fall under two broad categories: diversity issues in counseling and the intersection of positive psychology and psychotherapy. In this work, I am particularly interested refugee and immigrant mental health, help-seeking behaviors of underserved populations, and barriers to mental health care. I also study clients’ hope and therapists’ use of clients’ strengths to understand the intersection of positive practice and psychotherapy.
