Office Support

As the Marketing Manager for Warner Psychology Associates, I strive to help more clients access the affirming, culturally-sensitive, personalized care provided by WPA.

As a pediatric psychologist-in-training, my goal is to accompany children and adolescents with medical concerns and their families through difficult times by providing them with tools to cope with and make meaning of difficult experiences. I offer empathy, validation, and a familiar presence during potentially frightening times.

From 2020-2023, I was the WPA Office Manager, and provided administrative, and marketing direction to the practice.  From 2020-2023, I provided assessment and therapy to WPA clients, including to many student athletes.

I have completed my coursework towards a PhD in Clinical Psychology at Howard University, and am currently completing my pre-doctoral internship at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, UT. My current internship focuses on providing testing and therapy to hospitalized children with varying medical diagnoses, with a special emphasis on Hematology/Oncology patients. My research and advocacy work has focused on improving care and equity for individuals from immigrant and refugee backgrounds.

In my free time, I love to spend time with animals – especially dogs and horses – and read! While I will read just about anything, my favorite genres are fantasy and contemporary fiction. If you want to talk about a recent read, chances are I have thoughts to share!
