Clinical/Counseling Interests: I conceptualize clients primarily through humanistic perspectives and my process of working with clients is typically influenced by constructivist and emotion focused approaches. I believe that clients have their own unique ways of making meaning of their world. These constructs are developed by the clients’ own interpretations of what they experienced and observed around them as well as through existential need for meaning. I see therapy as a place to help clients to experientially process their current and alternate ways of interpreting the world. I also integrate multicultural theory and using various techniques when clinically indicated, including cognitive behavioral therapy and systemic approaches. My clinical interests include anxiety and mood disorders, grief and loss, relationship and family concerns, identity development, LGBT issues, sexuality issues, perfectionism, diversity issues, and working with internal students.
Multicultural Interests: I am interested in working with people from heterogeneous cultural backgrounds. I am specifically interested in the acculturation process of international students and immigrants, how they adapt and adjust to American society while maintaining the identity of their culture-of-origin. I am also interested in issues of social justice, gender differences, sexuality and sexual orientation, and underrepresented populations.
