I received her doctorate in Clinical-Community Psychology in 2013 from the University of La Verne. Through my education and years of clinical experiences in various diverse settings, I have been extensively trained in providing counseling through a multicultural lens. I have a strong passion for connecting with others and have made it my life goal to aid people in progressing their lives towards a positive, fulfilling, and healthy direction. To address a wide range of mental health concerns, I use techniques that are geared towards helping my clients coexist with, not fight against, their life circumstances. My areas of specialization includes (but are not limited to) grief and loss, resilience factors, trauma, racial/ethnic identity development, self-exploration, relational patterns/interpersonal relatedness, family of origin issues, assertiveness training, disability related issues, self-esteem, and providing support for those dealing with academic stress, adjustment concerns, anxiety, and depression. If you allow me to come alongside you as you learn to conquer the adversities you face, my mission will be to help you gain a deeper understanding of your concerns and ways to create positive changes in your life.
