Director of Counseling and Consultation Services
My style of working with students is relational/interpersonal. I focus on the relationships that one has in their life, from a broad perspective. For example, this can include relationships to family, friends, romantic partners, food, stress, academics etc. I will explore both strengths and areas for change.
My supervision style is developmental and I will adjust it to match the level of the supervisee. Supervision will routinely involve review of session videos and the use of a multicultural worksheet. The supervisee will set the agenda of topics to discuss and my goal is to assist with both professional and personal development as a therapist.
My special areas of interest include: trauma, multiculturalism and diversity, professional consultation and collaboration, eating disorders, training and supervision.
