My work is characterized by a grounding within Emotion Focused Therapy and Interpersonal Process Approach, with an emphasis on emotional fluency, recognition, and understanding. I believe that the therapeutic relationship offers a unique opportunity to examine and be curious about relational models, particularly as it relates to facilitating a meaningful experiential change.
My professional interests include substance use and access to treatment for substance use disorders. More specifically, I am interested in our relationship to substances, and how our cultural messaging around substance use informs our path and access to treatment.
I received my B.A. in Psychology from Denison University in 2014, and my M.Ed. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Louisville in 2016. I am currently a PhD candidate in Counseling Psychology at Indiana University- Bloomington.
I have two dogs who take up a lot of my free time! I also enjoy camping, hiking, and backpacking- but if I'm not outside, I love cooking, or reading cookbooks while lounging on the couch.
