In 2017, I graduated from the University of Washington where I double-majored in psychology and medical anthropology. I didn’t know I wanted to be a clinical psychologist until I began working at Seattle Children’s Hospital in the Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine Unit. This experience changed my life and developed my passion for working with children and adolescents. I am currently at Antioch University Seattle pursuing a Psy.D in clinical psychology and I hope to become an expert on pediatric mental health. I am grateful to serve the community and continue expanding my learning as part of the PEAK team.
Mental health looks different for each individual and the work to better it often looks more like a marathon than a sprint. We are all the products of systems long established before we were born and the unique experiences we have encountered in our lives. I believe that the careful examination of these factors is essential in understanding who we are and how we move through life.
In my free time I love watching horror movies, keeping up with the NBA, hanging out with my cats at home, and going on brunch dates with my wife!
