Pronouns – She/her/hers

I work from an integrative approach to counseling with my primary therapeutic framework being in Action and Commitment Therapy.  
I look to provide students with a sense of agency around what is within their ability to change in regards to what is working in their life and what is not.  I generate opportunities for personal improvement within the context of a growth mindset which means helping the student to establish skillful management of thoughts and emotions with self-compassion.

My areas of emphasis include interpersonal relationships, boundary setting, unresolved childhood issues (including trauma), anxiety, depression, adjustment to new environments, wellness, habit formation and grief and loss. 

My framework is from a Life Coach standpoint where every person is valued and has the potential to access meaning in their life and to be a contribution to themselves and others.
