Therapeutic Style:

Building rapport and establishing trust with clients is very important to me, because I believe it is the foundation of a successful therapeutic relationship. I often use a client centered, integrative approach that includes cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and solution focused therapeutic techniques. I also enjoy educating and guiding clients on how to utilize mindfulness in order to learn how to be in the present moment, minimize symptoms of anxiety, and reduce stress.

Professional Interests:

My professional interest includes taking on a more holistic approach to mental health and reducing the stigma that makes it so difficult for many to receive support and treatment. I also take interest in prevention. As the saying goes “prevention is better then cure.” I like to focus on enhancing life skills to prevent students from engaging in alcohol or drug use and harmful behaviors.

Groups and Liaison Roles:

I am an Embedded Clinician within the College of Arts and Sciences (ASC). 

Educational Background:

I received my bachelor’s degree in social work from the University of Toledo, and received my master’s in public health, health promotion and education with a minor in nutrition. I also received my master’s in social work from Boise State University.

Personal Interests:

 I enjoy cooking, baking and gardening (I think I have a green thumb; my plants have not died yet). In my spare time I like to read and write. I am currently working on my fictional manuscript, and my goal is to become a published author someday.
