Born and raised in the Finger Lakes, I am pleased to have just returned to this lively community after living and working as a therapist in California for the past several years.  I feel passionate about creating a safe and trusting environment to support students as they navigate their personal and academic lives here at Ithaca College.  While trained as a generalist, my areas of professional interest include trauma, substance abuse, identity exploration, grief and loss, and social justice.  In my free time, I enjoy yoga, nature connection, travel, live music, and celebrity gossip.
