For her doctoral dissertation, she developed a theoretical framework to study factors contributing to counselors’ empathy in the counseling process. Additionally, her research team was awarded a research grant for racial disparity from Association for Assessment and Research in Counseling.
Dr. Ho is an active member of the counseling profession. She served as a reader consultant for the CACREP and an editorial assistant for the Journal of College Counseling.
