About My Clients
I have experience working with young adults and adults who come to therapy with various presentations of mental health concerns including depression, anxiety, inter- and intrapersonal conflict, identity exploration/formation, life transitions, and religious/spiritual concerns. I believe therapy is most effective when we can create a safe space for us to push and challenge ourselves toward growth.
My Background and Approach
I completed my Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology at Rosemead School of Psychology. I completed my predoctoral internship at the University of Kansas’ Counseling and Psychological Services. Throughout my training, I have worked with a lot of college students (undergrad and grad) who sought therapy for various reasons. - Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology, Rosemead School of Psychology (APA accredited) - Pre-doctoral Internship at University of Kansas’ Counseling and Psychological Services (APA accredited) - B.A. in Psychology, University of Colorado, Denver
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
In my work, I focus on looking at how our past experiences shape our current experiences- ultimately impacting how we interact with ourselves, others, and the world around us. I believe our various identities and cultural backgrounds heavily influence how we engage with the world; thus, it is crucial to acknowledge those different parts of ourselves during the therapy process. As we gain insight into how different variables contribute to our distress, I believe we can open ourselves up to different ways of being to grow into our authentic self. When working with couples, I focus on each partner’s internal experiences while fostering an environment for each partner to share their experiences with each other. I believe it is my role to help each partner understand their own and their partner’s roles within the unit and find ways in which they can navigate their tendencies in order to improve communication and intimacy.
