Clinical Experiences/Interests: Family and relational problems, sport/performance, eating disorder/body image, couples/intimacy issues, life transitions, mood and anxiety disorders, identity concerns, and substance use.
Approach to Treatment: "My approach to therapy is to take a curious and collaborative stance with students and student athletes to better understand what is getting in their way and develop increased resiliency and self-awareness. I believe this will help them thrive emotionally, in relationships with others, and in their performance in the classroom and in their respective sport. I take a relational approach to my work with teams, focusing on developing increased communication and team cohesion to enhance performance and team dynamics."
