I graduated with the doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Central Michigan University in 1996, and have over 20 years of experience working with clients. I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Oregon. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy for treatment of trauma-related concerns. My clients include children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families for emotional, behavioral, psychological, and spiritual concerns. Specifically, I work with people with depression, anxiety, marital/relationship issues, cultural identity development issues, stress problems, anger control issues, bereavement/grief issues, PTSD, and multicultural concerns. Originally from the island of Trinidad in the Caribbean, I also bring an international perspective. I see the relationship with clients to be an integral part of the healing process, coming alongside them to work collaboratively on their concerns.I believe that people can change, grow, and overcome obstacles with the help of a supportive relationship. I do both short-term and long-term therapy depending on the needs of clients. Along with my work in Private Practice, I am Professor of Clinical Psychology and Director of Diversity in the Graduate Department of Clinical Psychology at George Fox University, where I teach and supervise doctoral students in their clinical work. I am married and have 2 children.
