 I am a Master's of Mental Health Counseling Student at Suffolk University. My career goals include working with youth, specifically youth of marginalized groups, that are struggling with Substance Use Disorder and Dual Diagnosis. I graduated with a BA in Psychology with a Minor in Sociology and a Focus in Addictions from Southern New Hampshire University in 2020. I've been working with Suffolk University's Office of Disability Serivces and love the work I've been doing in accessibility. I am working on setting up the specifics of my clinical internship in a College Counseling Center starting Fall of 2021. I look to continue pursuing research opportunities on my own time as I believe it can only help my skills as a Counselor and the future of the entire Psychology field.
