Biography

BA (Universidad San Francisco de Quito); MS, PhD (North Texas)


Assistant Professor and PsyD Program Practicum Coordinator


I am an intercultural clinical psychologist with a research focus on culture, trauma, and identity. I am interested in understanding mental health as it relates to the process of cultural, social, and group identity shifts in a variety of cross-cultural experiences. Additionally, I am interested in cultural adaptation, cultural homelessness/belonging, acculturation and how attachment and traumatic experiences play a role within these. I am actively engaged in clinical training and practice. My clinical interests include process and experiential oriented therapies. I am an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Institute Trainer and have experience in Dialectal Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), multicultural counseling, and clinical supervision. I currently coordinate the Intercultural Inquiry Research Lab.
