What do I do at the Counseling Center?

Although a generalist, a few of my clinical interests include grief and loss, trauma, multicultural and social justice issues, relational concerns, and crisis response.

What's it like to work with me?

My therapeutic approach is predominantly influenced by interpersonal process, grounded in attachment and postmodern feminism. I am interested in how interpersonal interactions developed over the course of an individual’s life, and how those patterns in turn impact the individual’s current experience. I view the therapeutic relationship as a mechanism for change, and place significant value on strengthening clients’ voices, as I invite them to share their stories and explore meaningful relationships.

What do I do at JMU outside of the Counseling Center?

I am currently working towards my doctorate in clinical psychology (Psy.D.) from Adler University in Chicago, IL.
