Have you ever felt overwhelmed by life events, but hesitated to reach out for help because your challenges don’t seem serious enough to involve a mental health professional? You’re not alone, many people think of therapy as a solution for those in crisis – but mental healthcare is for everyone! As a graduate student intern, I have experience working with diverse clients to build skills and habits that support healthy cognition, improve relationships, and tackle life’s challenges empowered by a positive self-image. I would love the opportunity to share, learn, and grow with you as well.

As a graduate intern, I have had the opportunity to witness the therapeutic benefits of changing negative patterns of thought and behavior, which can lead to acceptance of self and a better ability to successfully navigate moment-to-moment events and emotions as well as enhance the quality of relationships long term.

I am drawn to working with families, couples, and individuals who may be experiencing conflict within their personal or professional relationships, particularly those who have experienced childhood adversity, trauma, or cultural conflict. I have a particular interest in the impact of diversity on sexual and gender identity.
