Background

I have spent my whole career in college student mental health, and believe that working with college students represents a unique specialty within the field of psychology. My theoretical orientation is Integrative, combining Psychodynamic (particular Object Relations and Self Psychology), Developmental, DBT, and Feminist/Multicultural Theory. I enjoy working with a wide variety of presenting concerns and have particular experience with trauma, eating concerns, identity issues, relationship issues, and anxiety. I am also a Registered Yoga Teacher, and my clinical work is infused with an appreciation for holistic health and wellness.

As a former Training Director, I have a particular passion for supervision and professional development. My approach is developmental, collaborative and feminist-based, and my hope is to provide a supportive and engaging space for psychologists-in-training as they define themselves theoretically and clinically, as well as identify and hone their passions and interests within the field.
