I view clinical work as both a place of refuge for clients and an avenue for activism. I enjoy working with clients who present with concerns related to adjustment, mood and anxiety disorders, social and familial conflict, and identity development (e.g., racial, sexual and gender expression).
My approach to therapy is integrative, mostly composed of interpersonal/relational interventions, emotional-focused strategies, and behavioral elements. I am especially interested in developing ways to effectively use cultural studies to contextualize human suffering, as well as to elucidate the underpinnings of thought processes and behavior. Other professional interests include men and masculinities, race and gender politics, and issues of diversity, inclusion and mattering in institutions of higher education.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends (laughter!), reading and listening to music, and watching silly television shows.
