Approach to Therapy and Professional Interests
I use a holistic and collaborative approach to care, with a goal of helping people integrate the physical, mental, emotional, social, spiritual, and natural realms of their lives. Clients are actively involved in decisions and implementation of their care and my approach to that care is client-centered and problem-focused. In the student counseling setting, one of the expected outcomes of care is not only assessment, treatment, and stabilization of mental health disorders, but improvement in daily function and life decisions. Interests: trauma and loss; anxiety; mood disorders; adoption and attachment; resilience; self-efficacy; cultural and cross-cultural issues; biopsychosocial and recovery models.
Personal Statement on Diversity and Social Justice
I believe that each person has value, beauty, and worth because of their unique identity and life journey. The world will be a better place if each person has the space and support to work toward becoming their best self and realize their magnificent potential to do good. In order to move toward this ideal, we must practice openness, affirmation, inclusion, and the self-reflection necessary for lifelong growth and change.
Approach to Supervision
My goal in training and supervising nurse practitioners is to help each to develop the skills needed for evidence-based and client-centered practice, collaborative and therapeutic relationships, and healthy boundaries. I often tell students and early career professionals, “Who you are is as important as what you know and what you do.”
I enjoy reading, writing, and the arts, but meaningful relationships with family and friends are what sustain me.
