She views counseling as a place where a person can come to be their true and authentic self and share their story.  Counseling is most effective when the client and therapist work collaboratively to meet the client’s personal goals.  Additionally, she believes that cultural context (e.g., race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, location of upbringing) is a significant part of who a person is and influences how the person interact with others.  Her clinical interests include identity related concerns (e.g., sexual, racial, gender), depression, anxiety, issues around eating and body image, family and other relationship concerns, transition and adjustment, and applied sports psychology, specifically focusing on collegiate student athletes.   Her other interests include competitive running, reading, nutrition, fitness, and cooking.
