Life can bring many challenges and, at times, be very overwhelming. It is common to respond to such struggles with stress, sadness, worry, confusion, and so much more. Unfortunately, life stressors can also lead to isolation and feelings of hopelessness. Seeking support for mental health struggles can be an incredibly brave first step!

As a clinician, I find it an immense privilege to work with individuals and families collaboratively toward exploring and addressing various mental health concerns. I believe that every person has a unique story and perspective that is all their own. And it is my goal to create a safe and welcoming therapeutic environment through a compassionate, kind, and open approach.  

Currently, I am working on completing a PhD in clinical psychology at Wayne State University. I provide psychotherapy and clinical assessment services at Mala Child & Family Institute and through Wayne State University’s Psychology clinic.
