Philosophy Statement:

As a counseling psychologist, I engage in work that promotes more equitable and compassionate systems for people who encounter stigma and oppression. I see these as vital for the healing of our communities. My research program addresses the following questions: (1) How are individuals and communities who are marginalized affected by and respond to social stigma; and (2) How do we dismantle systemic barriers (e.g., classism, heterosexism, transphobia) in higher education and mental healthcare. My research primarily focuses on issues of social class and economic marginalization in counseling and education, and people’s experiences of stigma concealment. I use quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods approaches.

As an educator, I am dedicated to the training of emerging psychologists and counselors. I especially enjoy fostering students’ development as culturally-responsive and -congruent practitioners through mentorship and sharing of my experiences.
