"As a bisexual, fat femme, I think intersectionality is essential and strive to meet you at the intersections of your identities and lived experience."

What’s it like working with you?

I have a passion for walking alongside people in the midst of struggle. When you come to therapy, it’s like you are trying to climb a mountain; I am not at the top of your mountain but, rather, on another mountain, offering a different perspective, pointing out potential dangers, and helping you find the most effective path along your journey.

How do you keep your skills sharp?

I prioritize continuous learning as a provider through various methods. I engage in a weekly consultation group with peers for mutual learning and practice. Annually, I attend two professional conferences for networking and attending panels and workshops on diverse populations and therapy methods. I’m always reading psychology books, currently focusing on ADHD through Russell Barkley’s work. Additionally, I learn from my clients, absorbing new information and experiences they share, and I research unfamiliar topics.

My Professional Journey

My academic foundation was laid at the University of North Texas (UNT), where I earned my PhD. Post-UNT, I underwent an APA-accredited internship at the VA Portland Healthcare System, followed by an APA-accredited postdoctoral residency at the VA San Diego Healthcare System. 

My therapeutic approach is rooted in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. Further honing my skills, I have gained advanced specializations in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, and Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy.
