Ph.D. (2006) Counselor Education, The Ohio State University
My theoretical orientation is Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), which seeks to support clients in living and behaving in ways that align with their personal values while developing psychological flexibility. ACT is an action oriented approach that teaches mindfulness skills to assist clients in reaching the goals they deem most important. I have special interests in academic stress, career issues, graduate students and student-athletes. I am certified in the Koru Mindfulness Program which was developed for emerging adults (ages 18-29) and I am interested in Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness Practices. My current research interests include self compassion, imposter syndrome, and wellness/burnout prevention.
