Background
Biography

Welcome to the Counseling Program at Alfred University! As an Assistant Professor of Counseling, I am involved in the teaching, supervising, and mentoring of emerging professional school counselors and mental health counselors. I have worked in the counseling field for 10 and believe it is important to stay connected with our ever evolving field and I enjoying growing as a practitioner myself. As a practicing professional counselor, I work with youth who've experienced trauma. This practice involves facilitating weekly Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) groups and individual counseling utilizing Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT). As a supervisor and counselor, I infuse solution-focused and narrative frameworks to foster a collaborative relationship with the individuals, families, and students I work with.

A central tenet of my teaching philosophy is to support emerging counselors in their understanding of course concepts and/or skill development by creating a learning environment that is collaborative, experiential, and challenging. I seek to establish a learner-centered, constructivist environment that is inclusive of all styles and abilities. My scholarly interests include the preparation and training of counselors and supervisors, professional identity development, and school counseling program planning.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see and/or hear from you!
