What do I do at the Counseling Center?

I am a counseling extern at the Counseling Center this year while completing my Master’s degree in counseling at Eastern Mennonite University. I provide brief counseling, walk-in services, as well as participate in co-facilitating process groups and treatment programming.

In my role as a Clinical Graduate Assistant I provide individual/group counseling, outreach services, crisis intervention, and consultation. My clinical interests include: adjustment concerns to college life, multicultural issues related to mental health concerns, career development, and interpersonal concerns.

What's it like to work with me?

A variety of life experience has informed the way that I approach counseling.  I use a person centered approach utilizing an existential lens. Most importantly I believe in creating a warm and safe space for students where they can explore and develop self-awareness and identify personal strengths and inner resources.

What do I do outside of the Counseling Center?

I love spending time with my family and being outside and I’m happiest when I can combine those two things.  I especially love hiking and am often found wandering around the plentiful trails in Shenandoah National Forest and elsewhere in the beautiful state of Virginia.
