I specialize in providing individualized evidence-based treatments for anxiety, obsessive-compulsive, and trauma-related issues. My therapeutic approaches include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), exposure-based therapies, and mindfulness. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology at Western Michigan University, where I teach courses in behavior therapy, psychopathology, and diversity and inclusion. I also supervise clinical psychology doctoral students in our Psychology Clinic.
I believe that because every person is unique, clients are most empowered by treatment that is tailored to their individual strengths, stressors, and values. I respect the broad continuum of human diversity and the potential for every individual to grow and create a life that is meaningful for them. I work to provide a warm, compassionate, and supportive environment in which you can feel safe to explore what a meaningful life looks like for you, while challenging you to take steps in the direction of change.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, being active in nature (hiking, camping, skiing), and working out. I also spend time studying Buddhism, and I have had a regular meditation practice since 2006.
