My Pronouns


Therapeutic Style 

My approach is a melting pot of solution-focused, CBT, and sport psychology. My background in athletics and performance translates well because as students, you are constantly performing in school, work, etc and trying to balance all of your responsibilities. I tend to adapt my approach to what each individual student needs while trying to steer towards finding unique solutions, providing individualized techniques and interventions, and creating a space to discuss what is going on in your life without judgement.  

Area of Coordination 

  • Athletics and Performance 
  • Student-Athlete Wellness Workshops 

Educational Background 

  • BA Psychology, St. Norbert College 
  • MEd Counseling with Emphases in Clinical Mental Health and Athletic Counseling, Springfield College 

Personal Interests/Hobbies/Fun Fact 

I have a rescue dog that takes up most of my time by working out with him, going on road trips, or just watching tv.
