Approach to Therapy and Professional Interests
I am truly honored to be a part of the staff here at A&M Counseling and Psychological Services. I have worked within university systems for most of my professional career and love being able to come along side of our students as they move into life here at TAMU. Life here at A&M can be exciting, growth producing and at times challenging. My hope is that when those challenges and struggles begin to negatively impact our student’s journey that they will choose to seek us out. I believe making the wise choice to lean into these struggles can take courage and that seeking our services is a reflection of internal strength and not weakness. My goal is to co-create a safe space where our students feel empowered to show up with all of their intersecting identities and find the courage to move into their lives in new and exciting ways. As a therapist I integrate psychodynamic and relational theories with cognitive behavioral interventions, within a feminist multicultural framework. My professional interests include: family of origin and interpersonal relationship dynamics, identity development, issues impacting our marginalized communities, intersectionality of identities, social justice and diversity issues, outreach and consultation, training and supervision.
Personal Statement on Diversity and Social Justice
In both my professional and personal life, I am constantly learning and growing in my ability to navigate both my privileged and marginalized intersecting identities. I am very aware of the impact of discrimination, stereotypes, prejudice, power, privilege and systemic oppression upon the lives of students’ and seek to create brave spaces to positively impact these cultural and relational dynamics. In my clinical, outreach and training endeavors, I believe I have a responsibility to move into the gap, to build bridges and promote dialogues aimed at creating an environment that celebrates and affirms all of our unique identities.
Approach to Supervision
I utilize a feminist developmental multicultural approach in my supervisory process. I have a relational style in which I hope the individual that I am supervising feels supported, valued and challenged in our journey together. I strive to empower supervisees to find their voice, articulate their needs and take ownership of their process as we celebrate both strengths and areas of growth. Woven throughout our work together is the exploration of how intersecting identities influence our work with each other and with our clients. I tend towards the use of humor, look forward to pushing edges and having my own edges pushed in the process.
When I am not at work, I love hanging out with my wife and puppy, visiting my family, puzzling and dreaming of the beach.
