Doctoral Psychology Intern

Doctoral Psychology Intern

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, but consider myself to be an honorary Michigander as I lived in Michigan most recently for the last 8.5 years. I moved to New Orleans, LA for undergrad where I attended the illustrious, Dillard University. During my freshman year at Dillard, I joined the inaugural cohort of the 3-2 program in conjunction with Western Michigan University. This allowed me to earn my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Dillard University in 2016 and my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Western Michigan University in 2017. Prior to beginning my Ph.D. program, I worked as a Master’s level Limited Licensed Psychologist at a local private practice in Kalamazoo where I administered psychological evaluations and provided therapy to adolescents and adults. I am currently completing my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at Western Michigan University, which has led me to complete my Predoctoral Internship here at the University of Notre Dame.

I view therapy as a collaborative process and am relational in my therapeutic style. I strive to create a therapeutic relationship that feels safe and genuine for all of my clients. I view my relationship with my clients as the most important aspect of therapy. My theoretical orientation draws from Cognitive Behavioral therapy. This means that I am intentional about collaborating with my clients to help them better understand how their thoughts and emotions impact how they view themselves and their relationship with others.

My professional interests include Black identity development and concerns surrounding race, anxiety, depression, and interpersonal issues. I also enjoy working with international and graduate student populations.

I am a true foodie and enjoy sampling new foods from food trucks, mom and pop restaurants, and local dive bars. I am also OBSSESSED with the television sitcom, Modern Family, and am often watching re-runs. I can find a Modern Family episode to relate to any life circumstance and can quote lines from any episode. I also enjoy TV watching in general and can be found cuddling with my cat, Twinkle, after work to catch up on my favorite shows.

Supervision Style

As a supervisor, I am interested in both my supervisee’s personal and professional development. I view supervision as a collaborative experience where the supervisee work together to help them become more confident in their clinical abilities. I also encourage my supervisees to utilize interventions from different theoretical approaches and to utilize multicultural considerations to inform their work with their clients.
