- Psychologist -

As a practicing psychologist committed to inclusive and identity-informed therapy, I work with individuals and couples. I specialize in work that involves complex trauma and significant life transitions. I enjoy deep work with high achieving Black and other women/non binary folx of color who want to move beyond success alone to holistic and meaningful thriving.

My teaching and research focuses on college student development, emphasizing identity and intercultural competence development with an intersectional and strength-based lens.
