About

Are you ready to make important life changes and start creating a healthier & happier you? If so, I'd like to help you to address whatever is standing in your way. With years of experience as a licensed psychologist working in university and non-profit settings, I enjoy working in a collaborative and outcomes-oriented manner with people experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, life transitions, GLBT issues, & grief/loss, as well as coaching people who want to resolve career-related issues and assisting students to address challenges encountered during graduate school.
Having an investment in diversity, I pride myself in providing strength-based therapy that will honor your cultural background.
Using my career development experience, you can address career indecision, learn effective job search/job interview strategies, & prepare effective resumes and cover letters. Leveraging my faculty member experience, we can develop graduate school application materials that will make you competitive & help you complete your coursework and thesis/dissertation.
