I enjoy working with students around topics of life transitions, stress, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, sexuality, and the mind/body connection from a strengths-based, person centered, feminist perspective.  I strive to create a space that is safe, non-judgmental, and accepting for you to explore ways of being that are and are not working for you across various areas of your life.  I also incorporate DBT, grounding techniques, and mindfulness techniques to help cope with unpleasant emotions, thoughts, bodily sensations, and behaviors in my work with students.  I have a special interest in supporting and advocating for LGBTQA+ communities, both in and out of the therapy room.

 

When I'm not at work, I enjoy baking, water coloring, watching reality TV, and spending time with my dog, Rudy.
