Approach to Mentoring

Through mentorship, I hope to provide an open and affirming space for students to explore their clinical interests and future career goals in the field of clinical psychology. I also hope to help students build confidence in their professional identity as clinical psychologists as they progress through the clinical program and prepare to enter the field.
