Education & Training

I received my Bachelor of Science in Physical Education with a minor in Biology and Psychology at the State University of New York in Buffalo.  I completed my Masters and Doctoral degrees in Counseling and Clinical Psychology at Northern Arizona University.  I am also trained in Gottman Couples Therapy through the Gottman Institute and I am a Certified Mediator.

Current Roles

In addition to providing client care, I am also very involved in our training program.  I provide individual supervision to doctoral interns and emerging professionals who are working on licensure, in addition to providing special interest supervision.  I provide supervision of supervision to those who are also contributing to our training program and facilitate the Psychological Assessment Seminar.

Therapeutic & Supervision Approaches

I approach therapy from a systems perspective, as all of us are impacted by and impact those within our family systems and other systems.  I also draw on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Feminist, and Buddhist approaches.  My work is also influenced by Interpersonal Process Therapy, as I often use the therapeutic relationship as a vehicle for healing.  My supervision style is based on the developmental model (IDM) of supervision, beginning at the trainee’s level of experience and increasing skills throughout the training experience. I view supervision as a collaborative process, via mentor/mentee model with an expansion of independence based on the level of increasing expertise on the part of the trainee.

Clinical Interests

About Me

I love the outdoors, camping, hiking, animals, music, and talking to people.  When I am away from the Counseling Center I am usually enjoying the outdoors!
