My Approach to Helping

My approach to supervision is through a relational lens. As a supervisor, I deeply value the supervisory relationship, and believe that trust and support allow for risk-taking and growth. I believe that supervision should be a space in which supervisees are free to explore their own unique experiences, identities, and reactions in order to foster both personal and professional development. Further, I am passionate about attending to social locations and the complexity of identities for clients, supervisees, and myself. I believe that people (and presenting concerns) cannot be removed from their greater cultural context, and that identity inherently impacts our relationships with ourselves, others, and with our communities. Additionally, when attending to clinical work, I strive to help supervisees zoom both in and out – in order to examine new ideas for interventions as well as ways in which they can deepen their conceptualization and understanding of their clients.

I utilize interpersonalinterpersonal process theory and feminist theory as my primary clinical theories. However, I also readily incorporate somatic and mindfulness-based interventions, as I believe the body is a primary source of healing. Further, I strive to maintain a trauma-oriented perspective, and am EMDR-trained.

Prior to joining IntraSpectrum Counseling, I worked primarily in university counseling centers and at a nonprofit, wherein I worked with survivors of sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse, intimate partner violence, and with perpetrators of intimate partner violence. My passion is working with trauma, but specifically in bridging the gap between LGBTQ community and trauma-informed care. I readily work with individuals and couples presenting with a variety of presenting concerns, including identity development, particularly related to sexuality, gender, raceethnicity, and class; non monogamous relationship structures; trauma; and anxiety-related concerns.

I earned B.A.S in Women and Gender Studies and Psychology from Texas A&M University, an M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Texas Woman’s University, and a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Texas Woman’s University (yes, I'm from Texas). As a human, I enjoy art (creating and experiencing), spending time with my puppy-bear, and going to concerts.
