My edoda (father) is Aniyunwiya (Cherokee) and my ima (mother) is Israeli. I received my BA in Psychology with minors in East Asian Civilization and Creative Writing from Southern Illinois University. I went on to complete a master’s degree in passing and a PhD in Counseling Psychology at Arizona State University. I have over 10 years of experience in various facets of psychology including mental health and crisis counseling, teaching, and research.
I take a conscientious eclectic approach drawing mostly from systems, multicultural, and positive psychology theories to provide emotion-focused narrative therapy. My therapy is strength-based and holistic and takes into account multiple intersecting identities to try to increase subjective happiness.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Relationship issues
I also have experience in LGBT, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Sleeping disorders, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder
