Taking Meaningful Action in the World

The flow and exchange between my academic work and my practice as a clinical mental health counselor influence each other. My work with clients draws me to continually learn and deepen my understanding of counseling psychology, and I use my academic work to inform my client care. It is a beautiful dynamic of curiosity and healing!
