Professional Interests

My professional interests include working with students who are dealing with mood issues, such as anxiety and depression; trauma; health concerns; grief and loss; and relationship issues. I have experience working with individuals diagnosed with mood disorders, PTSD, adjustment disorders, and various health conditions in individual and group settings. I also find relaxation and biofeedback training to be useful tools to cope with many psychological issues.

Approach to Therapy

I believe that individuals are experts on themselves and, therefore, a collaborative relationship is vital to therapy. I aim to work with students to create appropriate treatment plans in order to help them meet their therapeutic goals. My primary theoretical framework is CBT and I also utilize motivational interviewing and humanistic techniques.

Approach to Wellness

I believe in a holistic view of wellness, focused on the entire person, not just the mind or the body. I view therapy as a way to support the overall wellbeing of students. I am particularly focused on decreasing the stigma related to mental health issues and individuals seeking mental health services.

Other Activities

I am a licensed psychologist in the State of Ohio and a member of the American Psychological Association. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, exploring Cincinnati, traveling, and watching classic movies.
