Background

I earned a Ph.D. in Clinical Health Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where I worked as a staff psychologist in the Center for Counseling & Psychological Services before joining the Center for Student Health and Well-Being at Davidson College in the fall of 2019. I have conducted research on the impact of trauma in college students, with an emphasis on positive psychology and post-traumatic growth. I firmly believe that individuals can grow and flourish in the face of hardship and distress, which is reflected in my work with students. My clinical interests include young adult development, working with survivors of sexual abuse and intimate partner violence, LGBTQ issues, relationship concerns and anxiety.
