Who am I?
As a resident counselor, I do my best to live by my values of openness, respect, social justice, and hopefulness, and I keep these values in mind while working with clients. I also believe in the importance of humility, and I know that all of my clients have things they can teach me.
When I am not working, I enjoy nerdy hobbies, spending time with my fiance, and snuggling with my dog.
I love working with:
My clients! Helping the people I work with to overcome their struggles and manage their symptoms is the best part of my job. I especially enjoy working with college students as they manage the many transitions and stresses of university.
I have experience working with people of a variety of all age groups, on issues relating to anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress. I also have experience with LGBTQIA+ identified clients.
Some of my favorite approaches include:
Typically I use a combination of client centered therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. This means that I believe in the importance of challenging and managing unhelpful cognitions while also making sure my clients have an open and safe atmosphere for therapy.
I also use techniques from dialectical behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and mindfulness.
