I empower clients to overcome personal challenges in order to enhance their quality of life, and the abilities to make proper decisions, as these are paramount to obtain life satisfaction. With the use empirically-based approaches, I have been able to see the transformation that individuals experience when they are provided with interventions which incorporate important elements such as unconditional positive regard, empathy, and genuineness.

I am a clinical psychology intern, with a master degree in Forensic Psychology. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree at George Mason University in 2011, and my master's degree at Argosy University in 2013. Currently, I am working on my doctoral degree in Psychology (PsyD), at Capella University. My practicum experiences include working with individuals with different life issues such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, learning disabilities, emotional, relational problems, and substance abuse issues. I have also had the opportunity to work with children and adolescents who have been victims of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. In addition, I have also been trained to administer psychological testing, including the WAIS-IV, WRAT-IV, WISC-V, MMPI-II, ABAS-III, MPACI, DP-3, the Trauma Focus Checklist for Children (TSCC), and other assessments.

Because research demonstrates that a purposeful life is vital to life satisfaction, I provide clients the opportunity to discover their strengths and their unique potentials, to explore their real capabilities, and a meaningful self in a non-judgmental manner. Although I have mostly used therapeutic frameworks that include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Existential Therapy (ET), and Humanistic Therapy (HT), I believe in an eclectic therapeutic approach, which incorporates different frameworks in order to tailor the ideal treatment program to meet the specific needs of the client.
