Psychology Extern

I am currently a fourth year School Psychology doctoral student at the University of Arizona. My practice can be described as one rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and executed through a strengths-based approach. Key to this model is the creation of a safe and welcoming space in which clients feel at ease and focus on their wellness. Additionally, I strive to be flexible and client centered, adjusting to individual strengths and needs. I believe success is found in a collaborative therapeutic relationship with a focus on the whole person in the present moment. Having previously worked as a school psychologist, I have experience supporting individuals with a wide range of disabilities and needs; I have advocated for children and assisted families in navigating school-based services. Additionally, I have experience supporting children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, those exploring their gender identity, and those facing challenges related to anxiety and self-esteem. At Intuition Wellness, I collaborate with youth and families to support individual growth, strengthen relationships, and improve overall wellbeing.
