I received my B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from Barnard College, Columbia University. After graduation, I worked at a Veterans Affairs hospital with adults participating in a psychology research study. I became further intrigued about the field of psychology and decided to pursue graduate school. At the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Professional Psychology, I had the privilege of training in various settings, including a community mental health center, a homeless youth shelter, and in private practices. I completed my pre-doctoral internship at the Mental Health Center of Denver (MHCD), where I assessed children, teens, and adults. Many of these individuals wondered why they were different from their peers and they sought to understand themselves better. Through these experiences, I learned the importance of helping individuals not only learn about their growth areas, but also about their strengths and how they can apply these strengths in order to fully flourish. I’m excited to join PEAK as a postdoctoral fellow, where I am able to focus on my passion for assessment as I gain valuable experience while working toward becoming a fully licensed psychologist.
