I work from a client-centered approach to meet students where they are using relational and interpersonal frameworks. I also incorporate CBT, ACT, and mindfulness techniques throughout my work. My clinical interests are interpersonal and relationship issues, life transitions, anxiety, depression, identity development, law student and lawyer related concerns, and clinical training and supervision. I enjoy anything outdoors, traveling, reading, watching and going to sports games (Go WaHoos!), spending time with my family and friends, and my pets. My favorite place I have traveled to is Greece and Hawaii. The TV shows I can never get tired of are Schitt’s Creek, Friends, and Gilmore Girls.

I use a blend of psychodynamic, relational, liberation, and attachment-based approaches in therapy, believing the past impacts our present, systemic stressors affect our experience, and maintaining positive relationships is vital to well-being and resilience. I enjoy working with a wide range of presentations and have a particular interest in the treatment of trauma, family stress, grief, adjustment difficulties, and depression. I also enjoy collaborating with clients to develop therapeutic spaces that feel safe and well-aligned with each person’s preferences and needs.
Outside of work, I love listening to comedy podcasts while attempting overly-ambitious recipes (with varying results). I also love literary fiction, the outdoors, and greeting every doggo in the neighborhood.

I take a collaborative approach to therapy to ensure that my students’ care is tailored to their unique blend of culture(s), life experiences, and developing values. As an integrative therapist, I pull from different theoretical orientations including CBT, ACT, and Psychodynamic Therapy depending on my student’s treatment goals. I work with a wide range of psychological presentations commonly found in university settings (e.g., anxiety, depression, identity development, acculturation, and relationship dynamics), but I am also specifically interested in working with BIPOC- and/or Queer-related concerns considering my own life experiences and intersecting identities.
Outside of the office, I enjoy making art inspired by shows I’m watching. I recently picked up Suits, but I’ll always make time to rewatch favorites like Sense8 and Steven Universe. I also have a fondness for growing plants. Lastly, while I thoroughly enjoyed my times visiting the Philippines and Japan, I hope to visit more of Asia in the (hopefully not too far) future.
Three things to bring on a deserted island: Sunblock, Bug Spray, My (filled) Art Supply Bag.

Carl Rogers once said, “we cannot change, we cannot move away from what we are, until we thoroughly accept what we are.” Accepting oneself can be a difficult task when it requires us to intentionally examine the good, the bad, and the ugly things that make us who we are. As a clinician, it is important for me to cultivate a safe, comfortable, and supportive space where students feel seen and heard. When working with students, my aim is to build strong therapeutic alliances and cater to the unique needs of each person. I consider myself to be an integrative clinician who works from a humanistic approach influenced by the multicultural orientation framework. I have found in my experience that helping students to identify and understand their intersecting identities can help them and myself to recognize how those identities influence their sense of self and the world at large. I also draw from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to help students to become more comfortable with being in the present and allowing themselves to acknowledge what they are feeling in their daily lives. My clinical interests include working with BIPOC individuals, eating disorders, identity development/intersectionality, social justice advocacy, and healing generational/collective/racial trauma.
Outside of work, I really enjoy trying new foods and restaurants, live music/concerts, traveling, buying sneakers, and watching movies/shows (some of which I have watched a few times). My favorite movie of all time is Shrek (if they do a remake, I can be cast). My favorite places I’ve traveled to so far are Venice and Jamaica.
