Therapeutic Style:

My therapeutic style is rooted in a trauma-informed, family systems framework. I frequently pull from DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) techniques, but overall use an creative, integrative approach to best suit a client’s treatment needs.

Also, I am certified in EMDR (Eye Movement, Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy) and often use from this framework when working with folks who feel particularly “stuck” in making progress towards their goals. I’m interested in integrating “parts” work into therapy and utilizing an IFS framework in sessions as well.

Overall, I consider therapy to be a collaborative process based in trust, honesty, flexibility and nonjudgement to truly be helpful. It can feel daunting to begin therapy for the first time (or even if you are trying again); so it feels most important to me that therapy feels accessible, useful and worth your time. I believe it is paramount as a clinician to provide a safe, inclusionary space that acknowledges the systemic influences (oppression, privilege, and power dynamics) on a client’s wellness and I welcome feedback on the therapy process from my clients. I use an affirming approach in therapy, and prioritize contextualizing a client’s identity in their mental health care.

Supervision Style:

When supervising, I take a developmental and collaborative approach. I work to celebrate a supervisee’s individual and unique strengths to help them grow professionally. Effective supervision is rooted in feedback and communication of a supervisee’s needs and growth in self-awareness. I aim to create a supervising relationship that is trustworthy and encouraging to each person’s knowledge and skill level.

Professional Interests:

My professional interests include: working with family of origin concerns and trauma, sexual violence survivors, multicultural stress (gender, sexuality, race, and SES, among others) and existential concerns (religion/spiritual construction and deconstruction); crisis intervention, depression, anxiety and OCD. I am passionate about stigma reduction and mental health literacy.

Groups and Liasons Roles:

Currently, I facilitate a gender inclusive group for sexual violence survivors (Surviving to Thriving). I’m a liaison to SARNCO at OSU, Mental Health Navigators, and the OSU Interfaith Council. I will also be co-facilitating the Art Space Workshop.

Educational Background:

I completed my undergraduate career at The Ohio State University with a degree in Human Development and Family Sciences and a minor in Religious Studies. I have a MA from Ashland University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.

Personal Interests:

Reading, creating oddly specific Spotify playlists, family and friends, my greyhound Sebastian, baking, artsy movies, a nice walk, the spectrum of coffee (from cheap to fancy and everywhere in between), and following existential rabbit holes.
