Hello! I joined Northwestern Counseling and Psychological Services in November 2022 as a staff therapist. I am a licensed bilingual clinical psychologist originally from the East Coast. My training included a specialty focus in health psychology and provided me with experience in hospitals (oncology and obstetrics rotations), integrated primary care clinics, and college counseling centers. While I greatly enjoyed all of those experiences, there was something about college counseling that drew me in. I find it both humbling and rewarding to join students as they develop their independence, explore identities, and take steps towards shaping their future career and personal goals.
I identify as Peruvian-American which drives my commitment to provide therapy in English and Spanish. I work from a holistic, collaborative, and empowerment perspective. My clinical interests include health psychology, mood disorders, mindfulness practices, identity development, and acculturation. Additionally, I greatly enjoy providing supervision, consultation and training to clinicians in various stages of their training.
