College is an incredible time of growth and self-discovery.  I appreciate both how exciting and challenging this time of life can be and enjoy supporting students on that journey.  I strive to provide students with a safe, nurturing and supportive environment in which we identify goals together and use a combination of heart and science to address the challenges that stand in their way. My approach to counseling is integrated and strengths focused with an emphasis on providing trauma-informed and gender affirming care.  I incorporate the most up-to-date research and evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MSBR).


Areas of expertise include: Life Transitions, anxiety (including panic disorders), depression, ASD, trauma, grief & loss, gender & sexuality, non-suicidal self injury

When I'm not working with students, I enjoy spending time with family, loving on my English Mastiff (Denali), being at the horse barn, planning my next beach getaway or listening to a true crime podcast.
