Therapeutic Approach: Psychodynamic, object relations, and interpersonal frameworks strongly influence and inform my work. I also integrate a variety of other therapeutic approaches into my practice, to work collaboratively with students to meet their individual needs. Working at SHaW – Mental Health for the past 20 years has been and continues to be a privilege for me; I enjoy working with students who are in such a dynamic stage of constructing their identities and life direction, I have a great group of trusted colleagues, and I appreciate the many opportunities to engage with the campus community in cultural and outreach events.
Interests: I have specific areas of interest in working with grief/loss, depression, suicide prevention, OCD, supporting diversity and social justice, and practicing mindfulness in the striving for balance in one’s life. I have enjoyed building relationships with people with diverse backgrounds and identities, and aspire to learn and incorporate culturally sensitive and informed approaches in my life and in my work. I also feel very privileged to provide education and supervision to psychologists in training, and this is consistently a favorite aspect of my role at Student Health and Wellness. Outside of SHaW, I love to spend time with my family and friends, exercise, hike, practice meditation, and hear or tell a great joke. I aspire to maintain a balance in my life that allows me to be fully present and committed in my work of supporting students through a process of change and growth.
