Adjunct Faculty

I received my master's degree in Applied Developmental Psychology from GMU in 2018 and am currently working on a second master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at The College of William & Mary.  I am passionate about counseling and teaching, and I design my courses to not just focus on rote memorization but also thoughtful reflection and insightful discussion.  It is my hope  that students walk away from my courses with both the content knowledge and a renewed insight of themselves brought on through reflection and application of the course material.
