Therapeutic Style:

I incorporate a behavioral blend of CBT and DBT to help my clients better understand their current level of functioning. I work along the broad spectrum of mental health care addressing concerns that are prominent within the college population, including: anxiety, depression, adjustment, substance use, relational stress, identity formation, interpersonal relationships, eating concerns, and performance issues. I am committed to expanding my multicultural lens and taking the time to learn about the unique intersecting identities that each of my clients maintain. I aim to help my clients increase and improve their interpersonal awareness, understanding, and insight while simultaneously implementing tailored therapeutic techniques to decrease symptoms, increase overall functioning, and improve their experiences.

Supervision Style:

My supervision style is both collaborative and strength-based in nature. I attempt to help my supervisees identify and build on their areas of strength, and invite them to explore growth edges to address within their clinical work. I strive to create an egalitarian relationship in which my supervisee feels as though they can be transparent and authentic regarding the various clinical challenges they encounter. I try to provide a supervision space that feels safe to expand not only their clinical development, but also a space that feels comfortable to explore their professional development by identifying ways to enhance their emerging identity as a psychologist.
