Areas Research/Scholarly Activity

My areas of research include exploring the intersection of activism and social justice in the field of counseling, predominately when working with the LGBTQ++ community in K-12 schools. I am also interested in examining the efficacy of arts-based methods as they are implemented in counselor education research and pedagogy.
