I practice from a strength-based client-centered approach focusing on culturally informed evidence-based practice which attends to the unique diversity of the individual and the sociocultural environment in which the individual lives. In my clinical role, I work with a broad range of mental performance and mental health concerns including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, identity issues, trauma, and sports-related mental performance concerns.

I became a mental health professional because I wanted to be of service to people in my community who are struggling with life stressors and/or challenges and walk alongside them in their journey from surviving to thriving.
Exercise, meditation, and yoga.
I invest in self-care activities, such as yoga, going on hikes, and spending time with friends and family.
