“Despite the distress, concerns, confusion, and vulnerability one enters the counseling room—one also shows tremendous courage and a multitude of strengths.”
“As a counselor, I am most interested in finding areas and circumstances in which you feel empowered and confident to utilize these strengths and creating the best quality of life possible.”
“I cherish the unique bond that the counselor and client forms, a bond that buffers through the many barriers and challenges we discuss during our time together.”
“Whether you are having problems adjusting to a new life course, seeking a new life course, or finding meaning where you are in your life—I firmly believe that the work we do together will allow you to form a life of beauty, self-acceptance, and resilience!”

After an amazingly rewarding and enjoyable time in youth development with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (Southern and Northern California), it became time to practice what I was preaching to the youth and maximize my potential, apply and enter graduate school. Having parents who are/were professional classical musicians, I first became drawn to the area of sport and performance psychology by the incredible commitment one takes, the sacrifices, and the measures to develop and sustain a career as a performing artist. This propelled some my initial interests as student in the Sport & Exercise Psychology program at Ball State University (Muncie, Indiana). During this time I consulted with collegiate musicians and athletes, as well as youth athletes to help give them a mental edge in their craft. I also pursued a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and interned as a counselor at the IU Ball Memorial Hospital Cancer Center, providing free counseling services to patients, families, and others affected by cancer. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Counseling Psychology at the University of Utah.
To adhere to my own self-care, I enjoy staying active via running, playing soccer, and hiking, making hip-hop instrumentals, watching most sports, sipping espresso, and finding new places to eat!
