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. As a multidisciplinary, systems-oriented designer, I have a unique approach to solving complex problems and understanding the world around us. I rely on a design thinking methodology, which exists at the intersection of the creative mind and the strategic, analytical synthesis of that creativity. 

Having taken a non-linear track through my undergraduate studies, I pull from experiences that span almost every academic discipline. I've studied everything from design, business, psychology, forensic science, creative writing, statistics, and music, and I've become  grounded in thinking inside a variety 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 envision helping to create a world with less health disparities and a future where mental health treatment is the cornerstone of a collaborative, integrative model of care.

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 progress towards my professional goals. I plan someday to practice clinical psychology at the doctoral level and lead research that innovates current approaches to the diagnosis and classification of mental health conditions. I plan to build inclusive and accessible curricula for higher education programs to prepare student clinicians for the realistic demands of clinical practice. I intend to harness my unique mix of skills, knowledge, and experience to foster a movement towards greater inclusion and accessibility across the behavioral health field.
