Approach to Therapy and Professional Interests
Howdy, y’all! I’m excited to be in Aggieland and consider it an honor to work with the students here at A&M. I believe that everyone has an interesting story to tell and I really value the opportunity to join students as their next chapters are written. I think that the best type of mental health care is the kind that you can take with you, so I strive to help students not only feel better in the here-and-now, but to develop specific coping skills that can be used for years to come. I have experience working in a number of different settings with a wide variety of people, so I really value being able to connect with diverse students. So, whether you are having trouble with anxiety, depression, trouble adjusting, or feeling connected, I look forward to seeing you soon and helping you to feel better.
Personal Statement on Diversity and Social Justice
As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I understand the importance of social justice not only on a professional level but a personal one as well. My own experiences have been a source of inspiration for striving to be an advocate and ally for other minority groups. I believe that social justice advocacy is a lifelong process of learning, so I proactively seek out experiences to expand my knowledge and skill base as a clinician as well as a supervisor. In my office, I believe…”Black lives matter, women’s rights are human rights, no human is illegal, science is real, love is love, and kindness is everything.” – Jennifer Rosen-Heinz
Approach to Supervision
My supervision style incorporates a supportive and encouraging atmosphere along with a cognitive behavioral teaching style. I vary my level of direction base on the developmental level of the supervisee, recognizing that beginning students may benefit from more concrete instruction and advanced trainees may appreciate a consultative and collaborative approach. My main priority is to help students become efficient and self-sustaining clinicians, so I take special care to create a supportive space for learning, growth, and self-care.
On a personal level, I’m a native Buckeye but love living in Texas—especially during the “winter.” I spend most of my free time staying cool with my partner and our two pups. Thanks and Gig ‘em!
