Approach to Therapy
I believe that people’s stories are at the heart of my work as a psychologist. I endeavor to help people gain new insight, understanding, and perspective on their experiences and personal narratives, mainly from a combination of mindful-cognitive, interpersonal, and developmental theoretical orientations. I use a combination of insight-oriented talk therapy and psychoeducational activities to help students build skills and understanding to master life’s challenges, explore their identity, discover resources, and support their success as students and individuals. I am also starting to explore non-western approaches to therapy.
Approach to Wellness
I try to constantly strive for an overriding sense of balance in my life. Things that help me achieve this are being engaged in meaningful/value driven activities outside of work, family, meditation and walking/being in nature.
