Therapeutic Style:

My therapeutic style primarily integrates elements from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), interpersonal, and Motivational Interviewing. The focus of therapy is different for each client, but is always collaborative and client-focused.  I will work with you to understand your world and your concerns through your lens, honor and explore your unique identities, and help you work toward a better understanding of yourself and your relationships with others.

Supervision Style: 

My supervision style is collaborative and developmental, with a focus on meeting supervisees where they are at. Thus goals of supervision are collaboratively determined, based on where the supervisee is developmentally, and where they are wanting to go in their professional development.

Professional Interests:

My professional interests include identity development, managing anxiety, non-traditional students (adult students, 1st generation students, graduate students, women in STEM fields, etc.), and psychological assessment.

Groups and Liaison Roles:

I am embedded in the College of Arts and Sciences, and am excited to provide clinical services and outreach to the College of Arts and Sciences.

Educational Background:

I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, with a minor in Philosophy, from Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis.  I earned my Master’s degree in Counseling, and my Doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology from Ball State University, and completed my Pre-Doctoral Internship at Miami University in 2020.

Personal Interests:

I am into just about anything nerdy (comics, video games, and board games)!  I also like to read, follow sports (NBA and NFL), learn about history, and go for walks.
