Suicide assessment and intervention; Identity issues; Disordered eating and body image issues; Relationship dysfunction; Crisis intervention; Clinical supervision; Threat assessment and management; Counseling center administration. Separate from my role as a counselor, I co-chair the Wake Forest University CARE Team which helps to maintain the safety and wellbeing of the campus through threat assessment and early intervention with individuals in distress. I have also been an adjunct assistant professor in the WFU Department of Counseling and enjoy training the next generation of counselors.
My work with clients incorporates developmental, psychodynamic (interpersonal), cognitive behavioral, and mindfulness approaches. I strive for my clients to experience me as safe, thoughtful, compassionate, and direct.
I have a great partner and two wonderful sons with whom I enjoy spending most of my time outside of work. I love movies (especially documentaries), music, This American Life, college athletics, photography, and military history. I’m attempting to learn how to cook and have yet to send my partner to the hospital with any illnesses as a result of my dishes, so I consider that a success!
I can’t say enough about the amazing mental health professionals at the University Counseling Center and professionals throughout the Division of Campus Life – I consider it a privilege to work with them every day.

I enjoy being outdoors and maintaining an active lifestyle. Spending time with my son and our two dogs, traveling, listening to music, and sweating it out in group cycling/spinning classes, Zumba, and cross-training are some of my favorite activities.

On any given weekend, you could probably find me exploring new places or looking for an adventure with my fantastic partner and our dog, Julep. Growing up in Northern California gave me a deep appreciation for both the mountains and the beach, and thus my favorite activities are skiing, hiking, camping, swimming, and pretty much anything else you can do outside.
