Therapeutic Style:

I take an integrative approach to therapy, grounding much of my work in humanistic theory. I consider each person as an individual with potential and strengths that can be utilized as a means of overcoming the difficulties that they face. I often talk of being “strategic” in sessions in regards to being strengths-based but also focusing on supports and options that can supplement and add to what the client brings to the room. As human beings, I do not believe that we can ever exist outside the framework of a shared community with others. I believe that the interpersonal elements of our lives, especially our attachment patterns, can have a profound impact on our everyday functioning.

My past training has included a strong focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems, and Solution-Focused Therapy, all which are included in the framework of my approach to working with clients.

Supervision Style:

My approach to supervision with trainees is often focused on interpersonal dynamics, skill development, and on them as individuals. I do not believe that we can ever truly separate ourselves as therapists from our personhood. We bring ourselves as individuals into the room with our clients, which can represent either a positive or negative experience for them. My supervision approach is aimed at both helping my supervisees expand their clinical understanding and repertoire of skills, as well as assisting them in better understanding themselves as they develop these skills.

Professional Interests:

My clinical interests include crisis intervention, trauma, family systems difficulties, men’s issues, ADHD, and relationship concerns.

Groups and Liaison Roles:

I co-facilitate one section of the Buckeye Brothers Men’s Group as well as the “I Thought it was Me” Group.
I am a liaison with the Gray Residence Hall. 

Educational Background:

I graduated from the University of Louisville in 2010 with a Master’s degree in Education and Mental Health Counseling.

I am currently a doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology program at Spalding University in Louisville, KY.  My dissertation research is focused on identifying links between trauma and female adolescent inhalant abuse.

Personal Interests:

My interests include reading fiction (especially fantasy/sci-fi), playing disc golf, video games, writing, travel, board games, movies, and walks with my wife and two adorable pups.
