I hold an LCPC in Illinois and earned a PhD in Counselor Education & Supervision from Northern Illinois University. I maintain a limited clinical practice working with adults with anxiety and depression, as well as past trauma exposure. In addition, I integrate relational-cultural theory in supervision, teaching, and clinical practice. I serve as the Clinical Director for the CMHC program and oversee the clinical training partnerships with mental health organizations and agencies.

Teaching Interests

As a counselor educator, I teach courses across the CMHC curriculum including, trauma & crisis, group counseling, diagnosis & treatment planning, supervision, and practicum/internship. In my teaching practice I utilize constructivist approaches, engaging students as co-creators of the classroom learning experience. In addition, I focus on integrating trauma-informed care and cultural competence in all of the courses I teach.

Research Interests

My research areas focus on the use of relational-cultural theory in teaching, counseling, and supervision. More specifically, I am interested in clinical supervision of practicing counselors using trauma-informed theories, development of trauma-informed practice in agency settings, relational development in supervision, and relational-cultural theory as educational practice. I am active in the International Center for Growth in Connection as a co-facilitator of the RCT as Educational Practice Affinity Group.

Consulting Interests

I provide consultation and training to agencies and organizations regarding trauma-informed counseling and supervision as well as training in supervision utilizing relational-cultural theory. I also specialize in intimate partner violence and sexual assault counseling and supervision.
