Approach to Therapy:
I approach counseling mainly from an interpersonal perspective, drawing from various other theoretic styles as needed. I am passionate about social justice, my role in empowering clients, and making sure to assess and provide culturally responsive care. My goal is to create a comfortable, safe, and collaborative environment so that students have the opportunity to improve the quality of their lives.
Approach to Wellness:
My approach to wellness is often centered around exercise. I run as often as I can. I enjoy coaching soccer and playing all sports.
Supervisory Style:
I pull from a number of different styles including collaborative, strength-based, and developmental. I encourage honest self-reflection and bring my own experience, mistakes, and lessons learned into the conversation. Taking from my interpersonal clinical style, I also highly value the relationship with a supervisee and often use what is happening in our relationship to support mutual growth and understanding. Supervision is one of my favorite parts of the work and feel fortunate for the opportunity to do this work at CAPS.
