I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology from Antioch University New England in Keene, New Hampshire. Prior to joining MindSights, I finished my predoctoral training with an APA-accredited internship at Morrison Child and Family Services in Gresham, Oregon.  My academic and clinical experiences have focused primarily on working to support children and youth of all ages and their families. Over the course of my training, I have provided psychotherapy and assessment services in outpatient, community mental health, school, and neuropsychology settings, and I have worked with a wide array of presenting concerns with individuals and families from diverse backgrounds.

I have experience in completing evaluations with children and adolescents who have presented with a variety of concerns including histories of discrete and complex trauma, cognitive/developmental difficulties and delays, behavioral difficulties, educational concerns, anxiety and mood related disorders, and autism spectrum disorders.

My clinical interests lie primarily in working with individuals who have experienced adverse life experiences such as maltreatment, systemic oppression, and other forms of trauma. I especially enjoy working with younger children (ages 6 and under) and their caregivers. I am passionate about working with families to build on existing strengths and to incorporate the values and identities present in the family system.
