I am a licensed clinical psychologist (License #: PSY 23571). I earned my doctorate at Duquesne University in 2008 and completed training at Cambridge Hospital, Harvard Medical School. I have worked at UCLA Counseling Psychological Services (CAPS) since 2009 as Residential Life program coordinator and staff psychologist. There, I coordinate the ADHD clinic, which provides assessment and treatment to UCLA students, supervise clinical psychologists and pre-doctoral interns, coordinate prevention programming throughout the campus, and provide therapy to the UCLA student population. I also run therapy groups for under-represented graduate students of color and a dissertation support for graduate students.
My areas of clinical expertise include: ADHD assessment and behavioral interventions, acculturative stress and immigration transition, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, sexual assault, and coping with stress and major life transitions.
Throughout my career, I have actively worked in community and clinical settings to identify needs, tailor treatment and programming for underrepresented groups. At UCLA, I coordinate prevention programming for staff and students in residential housing as well as Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training to the campus at large. I have presented on ways to address multicultural issues in academic, clinical and work settings. I also provide workshops on work/life balance, improving motivation in work and school, sexual assault prevention programming, and suicide prevention.
