Helping people improve their lives has always been important to me. I saw my first counseling client in 2003, and from that point forward, this work has been a part of my life. I have an integrative approach that is practical and strengths-based, and incorporates a large range of tools from various other systems of therapy (relational-interpersonal, CBT, DBT, etc).
In addition to my practice, I have also been involved in university mental health. Currently I am the Global Director of Mental Health & Wellness at Minerva (a higher education startup). Prior to that I was the Director of Counseling & Psychological Services at Brown University, and I have also been the lead psychologist at University of Portland and Washington State University Vancouver. As part of this work I also conduct research on counseling effectiveness, innovative approaches to psychotherapy, and client satisfaction.
