Curriculum Vitae (PDF, new window)
I am teaching faculty with Antioch University Seattle and enjoy teaching a variety of courses from a multi contextual and multicultural framework. I identify with a Constructivist and Experiential paradigm as an instructor, which means I believe that we work best together when we co-create our classroom community and learning goals. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington and an approved supervisor. My research interests include the role of stigma in perpetuating oppression, multicultural approaches to domestic violence intervention, and the use of technology-assisted teaching and learning as well as telemental health in expanding access to mental health resources for underserved communities.
I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and I live in Olympia with my family and my sweet Labrador Retriever.

My original research to date includes my dissertation, which consists of two Phenomenologies. One explores the lived experience of intrapersonal and interpersonal stigma during counseling between the counselor and client, and the other explores the lived experience of stigma within institutional and macro systemic settings.

I identify primarily with an integrative andragogical approach to teaching, with my primary goal to support students in engaged scholarship and deep learning. I pull primarily from Constructivism and Experiential learning theories in order to engage students in co-creation and unique meaning-making while also tending to the role of Experiential learning in the application, abstraction, and critical evaluation of “status quo” knowledge.
