I have experience and interest in working with individual who have been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, PTSD and OCD.
Approach to Therapy
I really value the work I get to do at CAPS and feel lucky that I get to do what I love every day. Working with students who are dealing with adjustment; trauma; grief and loss; concerns related to gender identity, sexuality, and sexual orientation development; and relationship concerns gives me the opportunity to support people through some of their most challenging times in life.
I value a collaborative approach to therapy and will work with you to figure out the best way to meet your goals in therapy. My theoretical framework is influenced by emotion focused and process-experiential styles. I think one of the most helpful things we can do for mental health is to better understand what we feel and why and use that information to communicate with others and pursue our values. I use some other approaches in my work (interpersonal, CBT and DBT skills and techniques) but the majority of the time I am focusing on those emotions!
Other Things About Me
I love food, yoga, going for walks, geeking out about geek stuff, and spending time with my family, friends and my enormous cat.
