What do I do at the Counseling Center?

I am a licensed professional counselor and provide individual and group counseling services. I coordinate our group therapy program and the crisis response and recovery track for our doctoral interns, along with providing individual supervision to clinicians in training.

What's it like to work with me?

I strive to empower individuals to move towards wellness through alignment in the therapeutic process. I integrate a cognitive behavioral approach with an emphasis on solution focused treatment, attachment and family systems. I have experience addressing a wide variety of issues, which include trauma, grief and loss, managing symptoms of depression and anxiety, self-exploration and identity development.  I also draw from a variety of professional experiences through my work in the community with social services and community mental health, including inpatient behavioral health hospitalization and partial hospitalization treatment programs.
