I am in my fifth year as a doctoral student in counseling psychology at Colorado State University. During my training, I have worked in both college counseling and community settings as an individual therapist, crisis counselor, psychological assessor, and group co-facilitator.
My role at the UNC Counseling Center includes providing individual therapy and on-call/crisis services.
I approach therapy from a person-centered, interpersonal perspective. I value genuineness, compassion, and empathy above all else in my practice and my hope is to support each client to finding these within themselves. I believe healing comes from connection with self and connection with others, and that therapy is a space to explore these things vulnerably and with support. I believe in providing equitable and culturally informed care to clients of all backgrounds and identities.
I am originally from Dallas, TX and moved to Fort Collins, CO in 2005. I taught high school math for a decade before shifting into my training as a therapist. When I’m not studying or working, I love being outdoors, traveling, reading, watching live music, spending time with my partner and friends and animals.
