Approach to Therapy and Professional Interests
I view therapy as a collaborative process where the client and I work together to find the best ways to foster that growth and development. I take an interpersonal process, feminist approach to therapy with a large focus on how our relationships with others impact our views of ourselves and the world, as well as how we can be more active in those relationships. I also place a strong emphasis on the cultural and societal factors that impact students. My hope is that through a combination of strong therapeutic connection, self-discovery, and engagement with skills both in and out of therapy my clients can achieve their goals.
My professional interests include: eating disorders and body image concerns, social justice and diversity issues, trauma (sexual assault, partner violence, childhood abuse), and grief.
Personal Statement on Diversity and Social Justice
In both my professional and personal life, I place a strong value on social justice. I have found that I must be willing to confront my own biases and privilege in order to grow as a person and a professional. I have found this process both challenging and incredibly rewarding. I also recognize it as an ongoing process where I continue to push myself every day. I find inspiration in those individuals who have joined me in engaging in dialogues around privilege and oppression, as well as how to enact change. I am particularly passionate about gender equity, especially as it intersects with other identities including race, sexual orientation, and gender identity. I also strongly value advocacy in my personal life and believe in volunteering for causes that promote social justice initiatives.
Approach to Supervision
I strive to create a supportive space in supervision for supervisees to examine their areas of growth and strength, as well as encourage curiosity and innovation in therapy. I aim for supervisees to utilize supervision as a place to not only expand and hone their clinical skills, but also as a place to explore how their personal values, biases, and culture play out in the room with clients. Through this process, I hope to empower supervisees to develop a deeper sense of their own clinical skills, style, and professional identity.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing video games and board games. I also enjoy cooking and spending time with my fur babies and my husband.
