I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Ohio. I received my undergraduate degree from Miami University and my master’s degree in Clinical Counseling from The Ohio State University. During my graduate training, I worked at Ohio Dominican University and provided mental health services to students through individual counseling and outreach programming. This internship helped spark my enthusiasm in assisting young adults as they navigate the exciting yet often challenging college experience. Since arriving at Denison University in 2016, I have worked with students through one-on-one counseling, group sessions, and psychoeducational programs.
I approach therapy through a wellness-focused, strengths-based lens, which involves incorporating clients’ interests and abilities into a plan to help them achieve their goals. My clinical approach integrates aspects of CBT, DBT, Reality Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. I have received additional training as a certified clinical trauma professional (CCTP) and continue to explore professional development opportunities around trauma and crisis intervention. Additionally, I am very interested in using creative interventions in sessions to help make counseling more meaningful and impactful to clients.
