Hi, I'm a clinical psychologist/neuropsychologist licensed in Nevada and Colorado (more states to come). I also have Authority to Practice Interjurisdictional Telepsychology, which allows me to practice telepsychology in all PSYPACT states. I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from the PGSP-Stanford Consortium. I did my internship and postdoctoral fellowship in neuropsychology at Harvard Medical School, CHA.

What motivated you to specialize in working with autistic adults?

My enthusiasm for working with autistic adults, and individuals with other neurodiverse conditions, stems from a deep commitment to understanding and addressing the unique challenges and incredible strengths that individuals in these communities possess. I have witnessed the transformative impact of accurate diagnosis and tailored interventions on one's quality of life. I am driven by the opportunity to help empower individuals through understanding, acceptance, and advocacy, as well as the ability of Prosper Health to significantly enhance access to care.

How do you bring a strengths-based, affirming approach to your client work?

I recognize and value the unique abilities and perspectives of each individual that I have the privilege of working with. I focus on identifying and understanding their strengths as well as their challenges. I foster a supportive and collaborative environment that validates an individual's experiences and identities. My aim is to empower and support clients on their journey towards achieving their goals.
