About Me

My journey to where I am has been somewhat non-traditional, but the cumulation of my unique training has prepared me well to work with a wide range of patients and presenting problems. I began my graduate school training at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX in the counseling psychology doctoral program. I was drawn to counseling psychology because of its focus on diversity and viewing the person holistically within a context (social, political, economic, environmental), as opposed to the more medical-model of viewing the patient in a vacuum and focusing on finding the problem that must be “fixed.”  

 

My graduate training afforded me the unique opportunity to become the head graduate assistant (GA) for three years at one of the first telehealth counseling clinics in the country. This novel experience has exposed me to special considerations in starting a telehealth clinic, navigating unique ethical/legal/clinical considerations, and finding ways to adapt manualized treatments (CBT, CPT, PE, ACT) through telehealth.

 

I completed my internship at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center in Houston, Texas, specializing in neuropsychology. This allowed me to spend 50% of my time conducting neuropsychological assessments, and 50% of my time in other clinical settings, mostly working with Veteran’s with PTSD.  

 

After completing my doctoral degree, I spent two years in residency specializing in neuropsychology at the San Francisco VA Medical Center. Here I sharped my assessment and evaluation skills, working with a broad number of concerns, such as traumatic brain injury, developmental disorders (learning disorders and ADHD), epilepsy, psychiatric concerns, dementia, and capacity evaluations.

 

I completed my post-doctoral residency in September 2018 and I knew I wanted to start a private practice in order to allow me more flexibility to practice what I love- therapy and assessment.
