Approach to Therapy and Professional Interests
I take an integrative approach to therapy that includes cognitive behavioral and interpersonal perspectives and techniques. I believe that no one approach is appropriate for every person and that clinicians should be flexible in their work. Professionally, I am interested in working with anxiety, depression, perfectionism, relationships, spiritual issues, and trauma.
Personal Statement on Diversity and Social Justice
My first role as a therapist is to listen and understand the client’s unique point of view, both from a multicultural and personal standpoint. I recognize that as a clinical psychologist, developing multicultural competence will be an ongoing process and I look forward to working with and learning from diverse client populations in a college counseling setting. I also believe that it is a major part of a therapist’s job to be an advocate for social justice. I strive to be an active advocate for minority students by supporting my clients and volunteering in my free time to advocate in my community.
In my free time I enjoy reading fiction literature, watching classic films, hiking, kayaking, photography, traveling, but mostly hanging out with my cat, Lu.
