Professional Background and Research

My research is focused on complex trauma and the impacts it has on individuals and family systems both long term and short term. Much of my research focuses on the construct, resilience, as many who experience trauma have shown vast amounts of resilience. Therefore, as I continue to study what factors lead to resilience despite the experience of trauma, I plan to develop preventive methods and programs for children actively experiencing complex trauma.

Similar to my research interests, my clinical practice is focused on trauma specifically, childhood and complex trauma, crisis, and adult mental health. I possess a wide range of clinical experience, with adults experiencing severe mental health concerns, college students in multiple settings, children, adolescents & families in mental health agencies and school settings. I have received training and supervision in trauma-informed care and family systems theories, which grounds my counseling approach and has had a significant impact on my teaching and supervision.

Other areas of research: Depression, Crisis, Advocacy, Counselor Education & Supervision
