Designers’ work processes can help us systematically extract, teach, learn, and apply these human-centered techniques to solve problems in a creative and innovative wayin our designs, in our businesses, in our countries, in our lives.”

I come to the study of psychology with a fresh take on what it will mean to serve and heal in the modern era. In over 12 years of growing my practice as a multidisciplinary, systems-oriented designer, writer, editor, and creative freelancer, I have developed a unique approach to solving complex problems and making sense of the world around us.

Having navigated a non-linear career track, I pull from diverse experiences that span an array of academic disciplines. In addition to psychology, I've studied business, design, communications, marketing, media, forensic science, writing, statistics, and music; I've become grounded in analyzing problems from an integrative mix of perspectives. My quantitative and arts-heavy education has shaped me into a highly analytical, strategic clinician with a knack for transforming big ideas into workable realities. I rely on a design thinking methodology, which exists on the dialectic between the creative mind and the strategic, analytical synthesis of that creativity. I envision helping to create a world with less health disparities and a future where mental health treatment is the cornerstone of a collaborative, integrated model of care. 


I am passionate about bringing nuance and lived experience to the understanding and treatment of complex psychological conditions.​ I believe that we are all works in progress and that it's essential to continue learning, maturing, and strengthening ourselves each and every day. I'm constantly innovating, growing, and self-editing as I make my way towards my professional goals.


I plan someday to practice clinical psychology at the doctoral level, lead research, and design innovative psychotherapy approaches for adults with neurodevelopmental and schizophrenia spectrum conditions. As an educator, I plan to build inclusive, accessible curricula for higher ed programs that prepare student clinicians to meet the realistic demands of applied clinical practice. Ultimately, I am committed to harnessing my unique mix of skills, knowledge, and expertise to move the needle towards greater accessibility and inclusion across the behavioral health field.
