What do I do at the Counseling Center?

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist at JMU’s Counseling Center. I provide individual and group therapy, consultation, and crisis services, help to facilitate treatment and outreach programs, and focus on the intersection between technology and psychotherapy.

What's it like to work with me?

I believe that life is about moving towards what matters most to you—your deepest values—rather than about running away from that which is scary, painful, or simply unknown. As the adage goes, “a ship is safe in a harbor, but that’s not what ships are built for.” I also believe that profound change is always possible and that none of what has come before—your past thoughts, feelings, experiences, or patterns of action—can guarantee what you’ll do in the next moment. You can always steer the ship in a different direction. Finally, I believe that we’re all in the same ocean—all experiencing the human condition. So my goal is not to be the expert but instead to swim with you for a while, and to help you find what works for you. 

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

I love being in nature, making art and music, and spending time with my cat.
