I am a licensed clinical psychologist working with individuals and families in person in Austin, TX and via Teletherapy across Texas and California. I earned my Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin where my studies emphasized therapy with children and families, integrated behavioral health, bilingual and multicultural practices and trauma-informed care. My pre-doctoral internship was at Westcoast Children’s Clinic in Oakland, where I focused on trauma-informed child, adolescent, and family therapy. My post-doctoral training was at the UCSF Infant-Parent Program specializing in perinatal mental health, infant-parent psychotherapy, couples/co-parenting counseling, and early childhood mental health consultation. I am trained in cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, psychodynamic, solutions-focused and family systems therapy. I have experience working with adults, couples, adolescents, children, infants, and families. In addition to private practice, I have worked in a range of clinical settings, including community mental health, hospitals, schools, and integrated healthcare. My research interests and areas of publication include work on cultural values and mental health, trauma-informed care and teacher learning. My focus in private practice is geared toward individuals, couples and families preparing for a life transition (such as marriage, a new baby or a new career) as well as coping with loss, anxiety, depression, trauma, daily life stress or relationship difficulties.
