I am proud to work alongside the compassionate, diverse, dynamic staff of CAPS.

For almost two decades, I have worked with adolescents, young adults, and their families to navigate this uniquely complex and transformational period of development, as both an educator and a clinician. I feel privileged to bear witness to the lives of young people. As an empathic, humanistic counselor, I cultivate authentic interpersonal relationships that form the foundation for insight, growth, and change. My clinical lens is person-centered, psychodynamic, and trauma-informed; psychoeducation, mindfulness, and cognitive approaches are a few of the tools I use to help students achieve their goals. I believe in a collaborative and systemic approach to mental health care.

My professional interests include: trauma; suicide prevention; interpersonal neurobiology; trauma-informed classrooms and schools; social justice in mental health; self-care; mindfulness; healing power of nature.

My personal interests include: seasonal recreation: telemark and nordic skiing, fly fishing, paddling, camping, hiking; daily practices: coffee (first!), music, meditation, reading, and trail running in Buttermilk with my Australian Shepherd, Khumbu.
