My favorite thing about working at CAPS: the PEOPLE. I love working with students and connecting with them on campus. I also enjoy working & growing alongside my colleagues and collaborating faculty/staff across campus. I have been meeting so many great people in my time here! 

Coping skills I recommend to clients that I actually use myself: talking to loved ones; watching a comedy show for a good laugh; and exploring fun, inexpensive things to do around the city. 

What I like about Cincinnati: I feel that there is a strong sense of community here. While the city is small enough that I often have mutual acquaintances, it is large enough that I can forge my own personal and professional connections.
