I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapy state intern. I was born and raised in Las Vegas and received my master's degree in the field of Couple and Family Therapy with a 4.0 GPA from UNLV.

I am an EMDR clinician with experience and training helping clients reprocess and reintegrate trauma. I joined Summit Mental Health in January of 2020.

I was born in Denver, Colorado, moved to New York when I was 8 years old. I lived in NY for about 8 years and then moved to Las Vegas at the age of 15 and graduated high school. I received my bachelor’s in human services and started working at a foster care agency. I enjoyed helping children to better manage their behaviors and mental health. I worked there for almost 4 years. I started working at Summit Mental Health in 2016 as a rehabilitative mental health worker and worked with many age ranges. I then worked in the office as a prior authorization writer and decided to complete my master’s degree in Marriage and Family therapy in 2018. I am currently a licensed state board intern at Summit Mental Health. I love my position as an MFT because it allows me to help families, children, and couples to better manage their relationships as well as their mental health. I love the CBT model; however, I am working on mastering other models of therapy such as solution focused therapy, narrative therapy and DBT. I have a passion to help others and love what I do! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family.
