I am an Assistant Professor in Residence in the Department of Counselor Education, School Psychology and Human Services at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I also serve as a clinical supervisor for practicum and internship, providing guidance and support to students completing field experiences in either clinical mental health or school counseling. 

I believe each client has the potential for transformation and growth. My approach to counseling is holistic, collaborative and client centered taking into consideration that the mind, body and spirit influence an individual’s view of the world. My areas of focus are working with adults and adolescents experiencing anxiety and depression and individuals who need guidance with life transitions (i.e., divorce, midlife changes, parenthood). Clients can expect a non-judgmental and warm environment that seeks to promote empowerment and meaningful change. 

As someone who grew up in Las Vegas I have seen firsthand the changes in the population and city and the growing demand for quality mental health counselors. I want to help remove the stigma surrounding mental illness, which along with shame and lack of information continue to be barriers for those in need of services focused on mental health and wellness. 

One of my favorite quotes is, “You didn't cause the crisis, but you can be key to the solution”.  My goal for counseling is to “be key to the solution” and help others find the meaning of their lives.
