It is an honor to provide therapy to UWF students and to serve as Diversity Coordinator for CAPS. Multiculturalism is an important value to me personally and professionally. I value and respect differences and strive to create a safe and welcoming therapeutic environment for all.

I completed pre-doctoral internship at Florida International University’s counseling center after finishing coursework for University of Miami’s Counseling Psychology Ph.D. program. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Rutgers University.

I view therapy as a means to help increase students’ understanding of themselves and the context of their experiences, allowing for opportunities to live more conscious and fulfilling lives. I also incorporate concrete skill-building to help students manage symptoms and cope with life’s stressors. I collaborate with students in setting goals and choosing an approach to therapy, and have experience with a range of evidence-based practices to address a variety of concerns. My professional interests include LGBTQ+ issues, multicultural education, mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), goal-setting, time management, and group therapy.
