Denver Masters Degree Therapist educated in Psychology, Research, Mathematics, Counseling, and Sociology!

Methodology

I believe that the best way to learn is to be open to new ideas and to challenging one’s own preconceived thoughts and beliefs. I feel it is important to foster a safe space which is open to a diverse group with a variety of backgrounds and belief systems so as to broaden students’ knowledge and understanding of the world.

Background

I hold a bachelors degree in Psychology and a masters in counseling. I will soon be entering a PhD program in Psychology to teach at the university level. I have tutored, counseled, and taught students for about 10 years in a variety of subjects and love the challenge and excitement of imparting my knowledge onto others!
