Background

Originally from outside Chicago, I completed my Bachelor's degree at Augustana College and my Master's degree in Community Counseling at Loyola University - Chicago. 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. Moreover, I completed my Psychology Internship and a two-year Clinical Fellowship at Counseling and Consultation Services at The Ohio State University. I was clinically trained as a generalist with the Scientist-Practitioner model and process-orientation therapy approach and my work is directed by Humanistic (person-centered, Gestalt, existential) and Psychodynamic approaches. I 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.

Research and Clinical Interests

My research interests have included the social psychology of attitude formation and its role in perceived obstacles to seeking professional mental health services, in particular with men. My research has also included the relationship between the experience of emotion and barriers to emotional expression. My clinical interests include understanding the development of, individual experience of, and treatment of anxiety disorders.
