Approach to Therapy:
I believe that people’s stories are at the heart of my work as a psychologist. I endeavor to help people gain new insight, understanding, and perspective on their experiences and personal narratives, mainly from a combination of mindful-cognitive, interpersonal, and developmental theoretical orientations. I use a combination of insight-oriented talk therapy and psychoeducational activities to help students build skills and understanding to master life’s challenges, explore their identity, discover resources, and support their success as students and individuals.
Approach to Wellness:
Spending time with family and planning and preparing meals to share together. I enjoy movies, TV, video games, and going for walks or sitting quietly while enjoying nature.
