Professional Interests

My interests include social justice and multiculturalism including (but not limited to): trauma survivors, LGBTQ+ related topics, racial and ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, first generation college students, and issues relating to social class and SES.

Approach to Therapy

Fostering a strong relationship is the foundation of my therapeutic work, along with the belief that each person with whom I work is the expert of their own life. I meet people where they are and I believe that growth and change occurs within the context of a safe, authentic, and trusting environment.

Approach to Supervision

Although my experiences with supervision are limited, I try to focus on the needs of my supervisees and, depending on those needs, will shift between the roles of teacher, counselor, and consultant.

Approach to Wellness

I like to read, travel, spend time with my family and friends, go on bike rides, and am hoping to adopt a dog or puppy soon!

Other Activities

Exploring Gainesville, going to public libraries, and meeting new people.
