My therapeutic style begins with a holistic assessment tailored to the individual, considering identities, intersectionality, and patterns. My approach is person-centered, and I primarily pull from the neurosequential model of therapeutics, using various collaborative problem-solving techniques. My goal is to explore the barriers or skills that might be making it difficult for the client to achieve their goals in order to resolve or manage the concerns that may have brought them in for help. I have experience working with culturally diverse clients of various ages in different settings, primarily with clients experiencing trauma and anxiety.
My supervision style is to meet supervisees where they are in their career development and to collaborate to identify the skills and professional growth that will help them meet their goals.
My professional interests involve working with clients who have experienced trauma and anxiety, in addition to a focus on family of origin concerns, life transitions, and first-generation college students.
Groups and Liaison Roles:
I currently serve on the Outreach Committee.
I earned my bachelor’s in psychology with a certificate in diversity studies from Ohio University. I completed my master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling at Kent State University.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and chocolate lab; getting outside; cooking; going out for breakfast; and searching for my next cup of coffee.
