Professional Interests
I received my doctorate in Counseling Psychology from Ball State University, where my research focused on the social psychological principles of emotional experience and expression, as well as understanding the barriers to seeking professional psychological assistance. I was clinically trained as a generalist with the Scientist-Practitioner model and my work is directed by Humanistic (person-centered, Gestalt, existential) and Psychodynamic approaches, and I tend to draw from evidence-based therapies (CBT, Mindfulness, Solution-focused) in my work to best suit a particular client or problem. For me, therapy is a collaborative effort grounded on the strength of the therapeutic relationship, which itself can be transformative and curative.
