Therapeutic Style:

I primarily take a psychodynamic and interpersonal approach to my therapeutic work and emphasize the role of early experiences and significant relationships in shaping the way we navigate and experience the world. I also integrate therapeutic interventions from other approaches such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to best meet the needs of clients and students.  My work is framed by multicultural and feminist perspectives, which means that I maintain awareness of how an individual’s background, identities, and unique experiences may inform our work together.

Supervision Style: 

I use a developmental and collaborative approach to supervision, focusing on the individual’s strengths and successes while also fostering opportunities for personal growth and professional development. 

Professional Interests:

I am especially passionate about the experiences and concerns of first generation college students as well as issues that disproportionately affect women. I also have experience working with students having difficulty with perfectionism and self-esteem issues, significant life transitions and adjustment concerns, trauma, anxiety and depression, and relational and family of origin issues.  Outside of therapy work, I also enjoy connecting with students through campus outreach activities and working to reduce stigma surrounding mental health on college campuses and beyond. 

Groups and Liaison Roles:

I co-lead Lavender Connection, a group for women whose sexual orientation includes attraction toward others of the same gender and is designed to offer a safe place to talk about issues that may be affecting their lives. I also co-lead the Surviving to Thriving group, which is designed to provide a supportive and safe environment for women who have experienced sexual assault or abuse as an adult. In addition, I serve as a liaison to Residence Life (Scarlet region). 

Educational Background:

I received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Hiram College and my Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Bowling Green State University. I am currently completing my doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology from Carlow University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Personal Interests:

My favorite activities include watching documentaries (any subject will do), listening to live music, and traveling whenever possible. I also love reading, running, going to museums, watching soccer, and brushing up on world history. My most recent hobby is trying to learn how to crochet!
