More about me: I am thrilled to be able to work with both undergraduate and graduate students at UMass. I have an interest in working with adolescents and adults of Color from a strengths-based perspective as well as attending to diversity and inclusion factors in psychotherapeutic services. I have published articles on school-to-work programs and a book chapter on the application of educational psychology. As a huge fan of eating, I enjoy relieving daily stressors through cooking and trying new recipes in the kitchen!
