| PSYCHOLOGIST | PROFESSOR | SALT LAKE CITY |
| GUIDING PRINICPLES |
I incorporate values of multiculturalism, inclusion, and social justice in my clinical practice, professional work, and personal life. I acknowledge and deconstruct my unearned privileges and stand-up to experiences of oppression. I conduct my work with an emphasis on ethics, integrity, accountability, and relationship-building.
| LICENSED PSYCHOLOGIST |
I received my M.A. counseling and guidance, and Ph.D. in counseling psychology, from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. I completed my doctoral clinical internship at the University of Utah University Counseling Center. During that time, I provided over 1,000 hours of therapy and assessment, and received over 300 hours of individual clinical supervision. Currently, I am a licensed psychologist (LP) in the state of Utah (#9517430-2501) and I carry a caseload of individual and couples clients in my private practice.
| PROFESSOR OF PSYCHOLOGY |
My primary role is as an assistant professor of psychology at Westminster College, a liberal arts-emphasized private college in Salt Lake City, Utah. In my position, I teach undergraduate courses, conduct research with a team of students, mentor students to enter graduate training, and collaborate with faculty and staff colleagues on a variety of campus initiatives.
| PUBLISHED RESEARCHER |
I maintain a feminist-multicultural research agenda that predominantly focuses on sexual objectification, gender, and LGBT considerations. I publish in peer-reviewed scientific journals, such as Sex Roles, Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity, and Eating Disorders: Journal of Treatment and Prevention. I regularly peer-review articles for the journal Psychology of Women Quarterly.

I serve as the co-chair of the Bisexual Issues Committee, which is affiliated with the Society for the Psychological Study of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Issues. I also am the treasurer for the Society of Counseling Psychology’s Section on LGBT Issues.
