Interests include: sexual violence, intimate partner violence, family-of-origin issues (e.g. adult children of alcoholics, dysfunctional families), LGBTQ issues, alcohol & substance abuse issues, body image & eating concerns, depression & anxiety. My approach draws from time-limited dynamic psychotherapy and relational therapy.
Interests include: behavioral health, depression, anxiety, substance abuse and identity issues. I work in congruence with Student Health Services to create a space for students to discuss how their behaviors affect their emotional, spiritual, and physical health. I believe that in working together change can be created to improve overall well-being.
