Bio:

Before coming into psychology, my early professional experiences centered as an educator serving disenfranchised communities and children, both in a war-torn region abroad and in Latinx and African American neighborhoods in the States. This work inspired me to obtain a doctorate in clinical psychology, with a special emphasis in military clinical psychology from Adler University. Clinical training has largely focused on addressing psychological wellness within a medical context, including primary care settings and specialty clinics addressing polytrauma injuries, complex health co-morbidities, LGBTQ+ populations, and couple’s work. Of personal note, my clinical and practical interests encompass the nuances of decolonizing psychotherapy, a liberation focused perspective that emphasizes healing over “fixing” and calls attention to the power and strengths of marginalized voices.
