Theoretical Orientation: 

My work is grounded in an integrative approach that relies heavily on the use of cognitive-behavioral therapy. It’s my belief that therapy is most beneficial when there is a strong and collaborative client-therapist rapport. I also implement interpersonal, mindfulness and multicultural orientations in hopes of helping clients meet their goals and encompassing their unique identities.

While in my doctoral program, my research has been on LGB health, specifically related to mindfulness, forgiveness, anger, and stress as well as relationship satisfaction within couples.
