About My Clients
I work with clients of different ages with a variety of concerns, including anxiety, depression, feeling overwhelmed, processing grief or loss, different life transitions, and other stressors. I feel grateful that clients allow me to be a part of their journey. One of my favorite parts of this work is connecting deeply and personally with my clients, and I believe in the importance of creating a validating and welcoming a space for all aspects of my clients’ experiences and identities.
My Background and Approach
I am a 4th year Clinical Psychology Doctoral Student at Miami University with my Master's degree. I have clinical interests across a number of areas and specialize in using evidence-based treatments to help clients develop tools and different ways to cope with different stressors, relationships, and experiences. I take a multicultural feminist approach in my work, integrating meaningful aspects of clients’ identities and experiences, and an interpersonal process approach to focus on relationships. I prioritize building a strong therapeutic alliance and collaborative relationship with my clients. I draw from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and mindfulness and acceptance-based approaches to help clients confront challenges in their lives.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
As a therapist and a human, I believe in the power of embracing vulnerability, nurturing our strengths, and allowing discomfort at times to cultivate the changes we want to see. I also believe in facing challenges with authenticity along the way, including exploring our emotions and thoughts with openness and curiosity, and sometimes a sense of humor and laughter.
