Approach to Therapy and Professional Interests
As a student clinician, my approach to therapy is constantly evolving. I use a collaborative approach and a cognitive behavioral framework to help clients change dysfunctional patterns or thoughts. I believe our thoughts can shape how we act and react to situations. Together, we can see which of our thoughts are serving us and which are causing harm then create lasting change. My professional interests include trauma, mindfulness, multiculturalism, academic stress, and life satisfaction.
Personal Statement on Diversity and Social Justice
I am committed to promoting social justice in the counseling relationship and in my work. I strive to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for all students. I recognize the privilege and biases that I hold. I am actively working on uprooting these biases and learning from the experiences of others. We are impacted by our culture, background, sexuality, gender orientation, religion, etc. and it's important to be aware of the different worldviews students can have. I hope to help students feel comfortable and understood in therapy.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family. If I'm not doing schoolwork or seeing clients, I'm probably with my partner or dog. At night, you can usually find me watching a true crime tv show or cross-stitching. I also like trying new foods and traveling.
