I am a licensed clinical psychologist with many years of experience working with children, adolescents, and their families, as well as adults. My interventions are heavily rooted in behavioral therapy and evidence-based practices including feminist and attachment theories. However, I tend to conceptualize clinical presentations from a multicultural and social justice perspective. While I employ empirically validated treatments to ignite change, I am also of the belief that there is no single story to any individual. Consequently, it is important to understand the social, cultural, political, and spiritual context of each individual.

This can include our past: traumas, conditioning, modeling, grief, anxiety, and maladaptive coping mechanisms that can show up in our personal, professional and romantic lives. Sometimes we can feel arrested by cycles, patterns or reactions to past traumas that continue to surface with no change and wonder, “Why does this continue to happen to me?” If this sounds familiar and you would like to begin to shift parts of your narrative to impact your whole person, I am here to partner with you.
