As a sport psychologist, I work exclusively with student-athletes here at The Ohio State University. I love the idea that I can impact emerging adults in a way that can have a positive influence on their mental health and well-being throughout the rest of their lives.
I am high energy and engaging. I use humor and interpersonal connectedness to reduce stigma and make counseling more approachable. I am collaborative and don’t believe in one size fits all, but rather in finding the right fit of what works for me as a practitioner and what the patient will find the most helpful.
At Ohio State, the most common conditions I treat are anxiety, depression and adjustment issues. I help student-athletes develop performance enhancement strategies through mental skills training. I’m pleased to work here because of the potential for programmatic growth and the fact that the university’s location in a bustling downtown area gives us a very diverse patient population.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling. I have been to 40 states and 12 countries. My 18-month-old has been to eight states, so we are working on instilling the travel bone in her. I also enjoy exploring new restaurants and being outdoors.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
