I am a counseling psychologist and, currently, Associate Professor in the Counseling Psychology program. I began my career at New Mexico State University in 2016 after completing a post-doctoral fellowship at the Center for Counseling and Psychological Services and the Center for Collegiate Mental Health at the Pennsylvania State University. I graduated from the University of Maryland in 2015. My primary research interests include the process and outcome of psychotherapy, with a particular focus on the understanding, measurement, and impact of psychotherapists’ cultural comfort and other cultural processes, such as cultural humility. A secondary area of research includes college counseling and mental health, with a particular focus on the experiences of historically marginalized college students, including Latinx students and international students. My research on these topics spans a variety of approaches, including quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods designs. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, going on hikes, playing music, and going to the movies. I am accepting doctoral students in Counseling Psychology for the 2023-2024 academic year whose research and clinical interests align with mine.
