cropped-mentalhealth.jpegWebsite Overview: 

I am a graduate student at the University of Michigan studying social work and psychology, and plan to practice therapy as a LCSW.

Throughout my journey to licensure, I will post clinical assessments of fictional figures in pop culture to identify the prominence of mental health issues today, as well as relevant research discussion questions and personal reflections in the clinical field.

Content:

I am the creator of The Character Clinic, an online center containing pop culture xCC2psychological assessments. These case studies are meant to instigate questions related to the role of mental health in media. For example, in Marvel’s Avengers, how does PTSD and anxiety affect tough Tony “Iron Man” Stark, or how does veteran depression affect the American role model Steve “Captain America” Rogers? In addition, due to the confidential nature of counseling and therapy, using fictional characters serves as a form of practice and discussion that does not breach any patient disclosure agreements. I analyze the cinematic evidence presented and write a suggested clinical assessment. Commentary and discussion on these case studies are highly encouraged.

I plan to post relevant research and clinical material throughout graduate school. My research interests include social psychology, romantic relationships, youth and adolescent welfare, and positive psychology.

If you have any questions or comments, you can contact me.
