Profile
“I use my personal core values of acceptance, safety, and advocacy to guide my practice, and I strongly believe in the transformative power of a healthy therapeutic relationship.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I started my career as a mental health counselor, specializing in the treatment of complex trauma. I decided to pursue my doctorate degree in clinical neuropsychology because I wanted to bridge the gap between neuroscience and clinical treatment and make the latest research accessible to BIPOC, multilingual, and multicultural communities. It has always been my goal to increase access to research and treatment, especially for individuals struggling to break generational patterns of trauma.
What should someone know about working with you?
I commend you on taking the first step in acknowledging that some stages in life may be harder than you expected. Seeking support so that you can thrive despite these challenges is an act of tremendous courage. When working with me, you can expect a safe space no matter where you are in your healing journey. We will work together to strengthen your psychological wellness and build emotional resilience as we create a path that reflects your personal core values.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am a lifelong learner and multidisciplinary research is a vital part of my practice and daily life. I remain immersed in the latest research on neuroscience, spirituality, nutrition, physiology, and activism. I bring information from all those fields into sessions with clients. I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all model; therapy is about creating an individual journey with the best tools available.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I use my personal core values of acceptance, safety, and advocacy to guide my practice, and I strongly believe in the transformative power of a healthy therapeutic relationship. With the right counselor, everyone can learn about their individual strengths and weaknesses in a safe and nonjudgmental space. From a place of understanding and acceptance, you can start making empowered choices, course correct when necessary, and build a fulfilling life that reflects your personal core values.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am very excited that telehealth has transformed the field of psychology so rapidly. It has expanded access and collaboration globally. We can now increase access to multilingual and multicultural psychological tools in a way that was not possible before.
Have you done any research-based work that you found particularly exciting? How does it inform your practice today?
As a neuropsychologist, I have researched a variety of neurodevelopmental and neurological diseases (e.g., epilepsy, ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease, traumatic brain injuries, Parkinson’s disease, and ALS). I use my understanding of brain development and trauma to help individuals build psychological wellness. I find it can be incredibly powerful to understand how our thoughts and behavior patterns affect our brain physiology and how to harness that power to build a healthier life.
