I earned both my masters and doctoral degrees in Clinical Psychology from the Arizona School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University – Phoenix. I completed my clinical internship at The University of Colorado Boulder’s Counseling and Psychological Services Center where I created an integrated mental health and medical program for LGBTQ+ students and Trans Care Specialty Team. I have experience working with community agencies and supports addressing a wide variety of mental health issues, including mood disorders, adolescent/young adult issues, substance use, eating disorders, and Sexual/Gender Identity concerns.
As a non-binary member of the LGBTQ community, I know the importance of having a provider who is genuine, empathic, warm, and understanding of the issues others in the community face. I am also aware of specific challenges in finding appropriate and competent trans care providers, and work hard at reducing gatekeeping for those seeking transition services.
I am client-focused in my therapeutic approach, and strive to provide a genuine, warm, and empathic environment to assist my clients in exploring their issues, develop positive coping styles, and work to resolve problems in their life. I am enthusiastic about my work and am privileged to experience an individual’s ability to rediscover their authentic self.
