Tell us about your journey in becoming a psychologist…

At a very young age I knew I wanted to help people. After a life changing trip to Brazil, I realized psychology was going to be how. Initially I worked with children and teens with special needs in various capacities as a front-line staff.  Working at a few different non-profit organizations in the city with children, teens, and adults my passion for psychology and mental health grew.  Before coming to Shift, as a member of a multidisciplinary team in a health clinic I was able to see the complex ways in which our physical and mental health are intertwined.
