“I believe that human connection can be an extremely powerful means of healing and I have deep respect for people who take a chance and trust the therapeutic process.”
At the core, my passion for critical psychology has emerged out of my own personal background. Specifically, I grew up in a biracial, bilingual, bi-religious home – an experience that has shaped the way in which I view the world and the way in which I understand the role of a helper.
I approach psychology from a unique social justice lens, which is informed by the integration of my lived and scholarly experiences. Accordingly, I strive to focus on a) research with underrepresented communities, b) inclusive education practices, c) collaborative helping relationships, d) community consultation and engagement, as well as e) purposeful leadership.
