I have extensive experience working in large, metropolitan locations and with populations that are diverse in the domains of culture, race/ethnicity, religion, gender, and sexuality. It is my personal and professional priority to meet each patient where they are and accept them unconditionally. I am open to and interested in learning about and understanding any and all relevant factors that makes each of my patients unique.
My American Psychological Association-accredited doctoral program and internship incorporated many courses, seminars, and experiences that emphasized the understanding of diverse populations. I also complete continuing education courses to maintain my license to practice psychology.
