Approach to Therapy and Professional Interests
My approach to therapy is authentic, collaborative and solution oriented. I foster an environment and relationship where authentic, non-judgemental, insightful self awareness can grow. I also enjoy coming up with ways to expand awareness outside of the therapy room and to apply insights in your life. My professional interests include working with individuals who experience depression, anxiety, family issues, couple issues, trauma recovery, spiritual issues, and professional identity. Currently, I am working with the College of Veterinary Medicine and the wonderful students, residents and interns there.
Personal Statement on Diversity and Social Justice
I enjoy bringing all elements of identity into counseling. I enjoy learning about what makes each person uniquely who they are, as well as the social, cultural and personal experiences that have influenced who they are today and who they are becoming.
Approach to Supervision
As a supervisor, I want to create a relationship based on authenticity, connection, growth and professionalism. I see my role as helping you gain confidence and competence in your own professional identity as a counselor. I believe bringing who you are into your work as a therapist is valuable for you and for you clients, and work with you to do that. Development as a counselor is a lifelong journey and I enjoy being on the journey for a brief moment as people begin their professional career.
I enjoy anything you can do at the beach – reading, walking, looking for shells, boogie boarding, snorkeling, and just listening to the waves. I also enjoy cooking new things, traveling, Harry Potter, watching competitive reality shows, and spending time with my husband and two teenage boys – not necessarily in that order.
