Aly joined DPA in January 2021 as an adoption specialist intern but transitioned to working in the counseling center as a therapist in June 2021. As the daughter of someone who was adopted at birth, she is passionate about the joy, restoration, and beauty that the Lord can bring forth through adoption. After graduating from Oklahoma State University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and Spanish, Aly earned a master’s degree in social work from the University of Oklahoma and is excited to serve individuals and families in the counseling center.
