After my Masters program I worked as a primary therapist for at-risk-youth for three years. In 2009 I was selected for the Community Service award for the Asian Association of Utah, a non-profit organization that helps refugees in the Salt Lake Valley. In my doctoral academic work, I have studied LGBTQ family issues and did a presentation on applying a relational dialectic framework to parent & LGBT child relationships at the Champaign LGBT Research Symposium in Champaign, IL. My current research focus is LGBTQ family relationships, specifically parent child communication.
