I provide an array of advocacy and support services to NIU students who have been impacted by sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. I joined the Counseling and Consultation Services family in January of 2015, but I am a long time member of the Huskie community personally and professionally. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two furry children Hazel and Ella, cooking, meditating and spending time on Pinterest! I love music and movies, especially all things Wizard of Oz related!
My clinical approach to individual counseling with clients is integrative, but I rely on humanistic, relational, existential and concepts of acceptance and commitment in my work.
I earned my B.S. in Public Health in health promotion and a black studies minor in 2009, my M.S. Ed. in adult and higher education, student affairs from Northern Illinois University. I am currently a counselor in training and will receive my second M.S. Ed. in clinical mental health counseling in the fall of 2018 from NIU. Go Huskies!
My growing clinical interests include stress, anxiety, imposture syndrome and authenticity, depression, trauma, relationship concerns, grief and loss and social justice.
