About My Clients

Generally, I work with a wide variety of clients and especially enjoy people who have unique life experiences. People who feel like they don't fit in often feel like they find a good match with me. I also want to highlight helping families and students in the transition to college. I specialize in helping students with severe and persistent mental health issues. I have 15 years experience working in college and university settings, first as a professor and then as a licensed psychologist.

My Background and Approach

I believe the different facets of ourselves are intimately connected, and the healthcare which is most effective examines problems from all facets - psychological, biological, social, spiritual, relational, and societal. I work within this holistic framework to guide clients in the changes they want to make. Often people come to therapy feeling very 'stuck,' but by examining oneself from this broad perspective, there are often small changes in one area which can start to affect them all. It is also important to examine the personal relationships, groups, and larger institutions a person is connected with as part of therapy. Historically, therapy has paid less attention to these facets of our lives, and this can leave important parts of the self unhealed. This exploration can help a person recognize unhealthy systems in their life, and how to more effectively relate and advocate in a way that promotes their health and the health of others.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Working towards inclusivity and change has been a lifelong mission. This shows up in my work as I am passionate about helping people understand how the systems they are in (families, workplaces, schools, faith communities) impact them for better or worse (and what to do about it). A core value of mine (and a focus of my own growth work) is humility. As a practitioner, it helps me remain open to everything in a client's life - their struggles, opinions, and especially critiques of our work.
