Title: Senior Staff Therapist
Supervised by: Joseph DeWitz, PhD
Additional Roles: Transgender Care Team Co-coordinator
Alma Mater: University of Tennessee, Knoxville (2017)
Professional Interests: While I enjoy working with all students and presenting concerns, I have particular interests in working with sexuality/affectional orientation, gender, and LGBTQIA+ individuals, trauma recovery, family of origin issues, and relational concerns. I am passionate about social justice advocacy and supporting students in understanding and navigating their multiple, intersecting social identities. My therapeutic approach is an integration of relational-cultural therapy and Gestalt therapy empathizing interpersonal process, intersectionality theory, and experiential interventions. Lastly, one of my favorite aspects of working at a university counseling center is having the opportunity to supervise and support clinicians in training.
Personal Interests: Outside of work, I spend most of my time adventuring outdoors with my puppy son, Emerson. I also enjoy spending time with friends, reading all the sci-fi and fantasy books I can get my hands on, exploring on my bicycle, and experimenting in the kitchen.
UO Love: All the natural treasures here—trees, ocean, mountains.
