I believe in the importance of warmth, humor, and transparency in therapy. I commonly work with students to explore mood difficulties, insecure attachment patterns, shame, challenging family situations, codependency, and the impact of traumatic experiences. I also enjoy partnering with students to develop new relationships with food, weight, or body image – informed by a Health at Every Size perspective. My hope is to build a safe therapeutic relationship within which you feel seen, heard, and respected – especially for the vulnerable or fearful parts of yourself.
I have experience in college health centers, inpatient psychiatric units, private practice, and an eating disorder treatment center. Outside of work, I practice my own self-care by walking my beloved dog, tending to an ever-growing collection of houseplants, attending live music, and reading books while sipping too many cups of coffee.
