When working with clients, I aim to create a welcoming and safe place where clients feel empowered to work toward their identified goals. As an integrative therapist, I utilize techniques from emotion focused therapy, cognitive behavior therapy and dialectical behavior therapy to assist client’s with exploring their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. I also utilize positive psychology and relational modalities in my clinical work to help foster a supportive and collaborative relationship with clients. I perceive clients as whole and unique persons that are physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually impacted by their environment and interpersonal interactions. I enjoy learning about each clients unique strengths in the process of overcoming the challenges that life presents.
I received my Psy.D in 2021 from Biola University, an APA-accredited school. I also have a B.S. in Clinical and Research Psychology from Eastern Nazarene College. My pre-doctoral internship was completed in Exton, PA at Holcomb Behavioral Health Systems. During my post-doctorate training I worked as a Health Psychologist with an emphasis on women’s health at California Pacific Medical Center in San Fransisco. My clinical training and experience includes expertise in trauma-informed care, perinatal and postpartum concerns, and a history of sexual assault.
