My past experience working with survivors of gender-based violence is what inspired me to begin the process towards becoming a clinical social worker. I am humbled and honored that students allow me the opportunity to walk alongside them as they navigate life’s challenges. I use an intersectional feminist and multicultural lens, and my practice tends to draw from acceptance and commitment therapy, humanistic and strengths-based approaches. I work to create a space that is non-judgmental and affirming. I like to laugh, and employ humor as a therapeutic tool. I particularly enjoy working with students navigating marginalized identities and looking to build resilience, survivors of gender-based violence and LGBTQIA+ students. I identify as a white, cisgender, queer/bisexual woman.
