I am interested in career counseling, training therapists, and working with first generation college students. I am also active in my local Trout Unlimited Chapter and enjoy fly fishing.
My area of study is counseling psychology and college student mental health. I am currently working with students at MCLA on several research projects related to experiences with disclosing mental health problems in classrooms.
