My Journey in Psychology

I became a psychologist because of the impact my father’s addiction had on me and my siblings in childhood. In my clinical practice, I want to create emotionally safe and validating spaces for people to explore emotions and change behaviors that could be connected to past difficult experiences.

My specialty involves family-of-origin concerns, and I work on increasing awareness and management of the current impact that adverse childhood experiences and trauma can have on parenting and self-worth later in life. Seeing the tremendous courage that people have to make changes in their life and seek support inspires me every day.

I currently work at University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) training and teaching graduate students and psychiatry residents in psychotherapy while seeing patients. Prior to UAB, I worked in university counseling centers for 12 years, and enjoyed offering guidance to young people at this important time of personal development. Beyond that, I consult with different organizations on mental health and well-being curriculum creation.

At Flo, I enjoy supporting various types of content focused on mental well-being, mindfulness, and finding joy in daily life.
