Therapeutic Style:

My clinical work is grounded in existential philosophy and Queer Theory. Simply put, this means that making meaning out of the tough stuff that life throws at us is an important theme in his approach. Furthermore, I often approach work with clients and the community by challenging that which is perceived as normal. Techniques used in direct services draw from Adaptive Information Processing (AIP), Interpersonal Process, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Gestalt techniques. I am also able to provide Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as a treatment option.  

Supervision Style:

My supervision style for counselor trainees is focused on interpersonal and person centered supervision techniques. Also, I place a strong emphasis on encouraging self-empowerment and wellness for the interns I work with.

Professional Interests:

I have a passion for working with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning and otherwise non-heterosexual/gender conforming population. With this focus I draw from Queer Theory and use an affirmative approach to support individuals, couples, families, groups, and the campus community.  I strive to provide a safe and respectful space whether or not sexual or gender identity is the focus of the therapeutic relationship.  I also am interested in working with trauma, campus outreach, and graduate students.  I am currently the Outreach Coordinator at CCS.

Groups and Liaison Roles:

I facilitate the Lambda Men’s Group and TrueSelves: A Gender Spectrum Group. I am a Liaison to the Multicultural Center LGBTQ intercultural specialist.

Education background:

I am a graduate of The Ohio State University and hold both a BS in Human Ecology and an MA in Counselor Education from OSU.

Personal Interests:

I am an Ohio native and have lived in the Columbus area for the past 16 years. I enjoy cooking, sharing food with others, the theater, taking the scenic route, hiking adventures, the Harry Potter books, balls of yarn, oysters, the OSUMB preforming Script Ohio, tchotchkes, coffee, Euchre, and riding his bike as often as possible. I love to laugh and values humor as a universal means of ongoing healing. My favorite movie is The Silence of the Lambs. I would also like to share that my favorite Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream combination is Bangkok Peanut, Queen City Cayenne, and Whiskey & Pecan
