I received a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the Educational Psychology Department at the University of Utah and a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Washington State University. I have presented at professional conferences on research related to Women and Multicultural Issues. The most recent presentation focused on the Sociocultural Issues Related to Body Image and Eating Issues in Mexican American College Women. I am interested in developmental issues facing the diverse college population, body image and eating issues, crisis intervention, training, first generation college students, ethnic identity, LGBT issues, Chicano (a)/Latino(a) population, and multicultural issues. I am currently developing a Post Doctoral Training Program for CPSC and recently started Active Minds, a student organization focused on raising mental health awareness on the campus community. Prior clinical experience includes college counseling settings such as University of California, Berkeley, University of Utah, and Washington State University.
