Embedded Clinical Therapist, College of Engineering
I consider my therapeutic style to be integrative, combining interpersonal and emotion-focused therapies, through a feminist and multicultural lens. I focus on meeting clients where they are at, helping to work together to walk along a journey of growth and healing. Throughout the therapeutic process, I collaborate with my clients to help them better understand themselves, their emotions, and their relationships with others. I work to honor every person’s diverse and unique story, exploring the identities and experiences that have shaped their worldview and made them the person they are.
As a supervisor, it is important for me to tailor my approach to meet the needs of my supervisee. Therefore, my supervision style is developmental in nature, focusing on where my supervisee is at in their personal and professional development. I aim to make supervision a collaborative experience, where the supervisee and I work together to help them grow, both as a person and as a therapist. It is important to me for my supervisee to develop their own style and approach to therapy, and therefore I encourage my supervisees to explore new interventions and approaches when working with their clients.
My professional interests include self-compassion, cultural identity development and intersectionality, anxiety management, resiliency, disordered eating concerns, trauma, and relationship and family of origin issues.
