I am a master’s level clinician and an advanced doctoral student in Clinical Psychology at Fordham University. I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Creighton University and a Master’s of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Fordham University. My clinical background is shaped by combining research and clinical practice to assist individuals in shifting thoughts and behaviors that may initially feel unchangeable, with the ultimate goal to live a life they love. I have a diverse clinical background that includes working with legally involved individuals in group and individual therapy, individuals with substance use disorders, individuals with psychiatric diagnoses and presentations that require inpatient care, and college students. My therapeutic approach blends aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy strategies including mindfulness, and exploration and understanding of the self through reflection and processing of formative life experiences. I operate from a strengths-based, person-centered approach where the client and I work together to identify goals, implement coping skills, and build insight and strategies to navigate stressors.
