Approach to Therapy and Professional Interests
I believe college can be both rewarding and challenging at times, and counseling is a non-judgmental space to explore this stage of life. My approach to counseling is to meet clients where they are at, provide an environment to be open about thoughts and feelings, and to highlight clients’ unique strengths and abilities to cope. My hope is to collaborate with clients that face challenges in all areas of their life, including relationships, academics and career choices.
Personal Statement on Diversity and Social Justice
Over my years at Counseling & Psychological Services, I have continuously reflected on my unique identity and privilege through supervision and professional development. Working with diverse clients and colleagues has challenged me to be more open to peoples’ lived experiences and to regularly confront my own biases. I believe this is essential to meaningful connect with others and to create a working therapeutic alliance. Therefore, I aim to engage in dialogue with clients, colleagues and trainees about diversity and the unique intersectionality for each individual. I believe competency in diversity and social justice issues is a life-long process and I am committed to continue to strengthen my understanding by having open dialogues about differences.
Approach to Supervision
My involvement with supervision currently consists of supervising interns while co-leading the Embracing Your Self-Worth Group. My approach to supervision is relational, with emphasis on building a collaborative and supportive relationship. I enjoy supervision of group because of the unique opportunity to model clinical skills and to observe and support interns in real time. I look forward to new supervision opportunities at the group and individual level and strive to incorporate curiosity, empowerment and transparency into the supervisory relationship.
I spend my time outside of work with my husband and four children. I enjoy spending time in the Texas hill country, playing volleyball and playing board games with friends.
