Therapeutic Style:

I am very relationship-focused by nature so I have been naturally drawn to a more interpersonal style of therapy. As an IPT therapist, I receive much influence from person-centered theory. I approach my work with clients through a multicultural lens, taking into consideration each client’s individual background, characteristics, and attributes. I also saw influences from feminist theory. 

Supervision Style: 

My supervision style is student-centered with a focus on the individual needs of the student/trainee. I draw from the discrimination model with the multiple roles I hold within the supervisory relationship. While I am not supervising trainees here at CCS, I have a strong passion for clinical supervision.

Professional Interests:

I have a wide range of interests including cross-racial interactions within counseling and counselor education, couples counseling, interpersonal concerns, multiculturalism and social justice issues, college counseling, counselor education and supervision, and professional advocacy. I am currently working on my dissertation focusing on cross-racial experiences in the counselor education classroom.

Groups and Liaison Roles:

I am currently the co-facilitator of the ABD II Psychotherapy Group for Doctoral Students. I have also previously co-facilitated the Colorful Women group here at CCS and AOD-focused groups within a residential treatment facility.

Educational Background:

I was born and raised in Akron, Ohio! I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from The Ohio State University (OSU) and later obtained Master of Arts degree in Clinical Counseling from (OSU) as well. I am currently a Doctoral Candidate in the Ph.D. Counselor Education and Supervision program at Kent State University. 

Personal Interests:

I enjoy spending quality time with my loved ones which usually includes eating (I LOVE food!), sports (primarily football and basketball, GO BUCKS!), or some sort of fun activity. I love trying new things with others, but also appreciate my moments of solitude which usually includes my guilty pleasure, reality television J.
