Greetings! It is an honor and privilege to serve the UC Irvine community as a Senior Staff Psychologist after completing both my internship, as well as my Post-Doctoral Fellowship here at the Counseling Center.
I describe my clinical work with clients as theoretically integrative and technically eclectic. My approach to psychotherapy is grounded in multiculturalism and integrates interpersonal, person-centered, and CBT theoretical perspectives. Like a trained musician, I use myself as an instrument for change by cultivating a strong therapeutic relationship with clients. I adopt a strengths based approach to empower clients to arrive at their own “answers” by collaboratively helping them create short-term and long-term goals.
My outreach efforts include collaborations with and advocacy for the African American/Black community and serving as the Counseling Center liaison to the Athletics Department.
I genuinely look forward to the possibility of working with you! Peace and Blessings.
Greetings and welcome to the Counseling Center! I am both privileged and honored to work with students during their time at UCI.
I work collaboratively and employ a humanistic approach to help empower and support students through life’s challenges. My clinical focus includes a wide range of areas such as anxiety, stress, depression, adjustment problems, relationship issues, cross-cultural issues, gender identity issues, LGBTQ community, trauma and intimate partner violence. I have a special interest in working with first generation students and also issues surrounding African-American mental health.
Currently, I serve as the liaison to the Black Resource Center. I am excited to serve the campus community with compassion and support in order to help improve our student’s college experience and overall quality of life. I look forward to working with you!
