I view the strength of the therapeutic relationship as the foundation for change and growth. I strive to create a therapeutic alliance that feels safe, collaborative, warm, and empowering for all clients. My theoretical orientation draws from the psychodynamic, interpersonal, and existential traditions. I have training and experience with Prolonged Exposure therapy in the treatment of individuals who have experienced trauma.
I seek to create a supervisory experience that is interpersonal, collaborative, and developmentally appropriate. We will discuss cases and review recordings in order to get a full picture of the clinical work. I strive to make supervision a place where the supervisee can feel safe and be authentic. In addition to clinical material, I think it's important to focus on professional development. As such, we will spend some time discussing professional goals and the supervisee's identity as an emerging psychologist.
My professional interests include working with clients who have experienced trauma; survivors of sexual violence; graduate students; depression; working with members of the LGBT and otherwise non-heterosexual/gender non-conforming population; interpersonal difficulties and relationship concerns; family of origin concerns; working with students with disabilities; ethnic identity development among children of immigrants; first generation to college students; neuropsychology and psychological assessment. One of my roles at CCS is the Assessment Coordinator to help clients in need of intellectual, personality, ADHD, and career testing.
