Interests: in addition to experience helping students tackle problems with mood, anxiety, thinking processes, action, and relationships, Dr. Buelow works with students experiencing academic and career difficulties, cultural stress (ability, age, ethnicity, first generation in college, sexual orientation, and other), grief, substance use concerns, and current difficulties related to traumatic memories.
Challenges arise from both ‘nature & nurture’ and, Dr. Buelow thinks of mental health as developmental. She focuses on personal strengths and trusts people to make their own decisions. The path to a more meaningful and satisfying life comes through honesty, healthy relationships with self and others, developing acceptance skills and healthy flexibility, and making choices based on ethical values and beliefs. Perspectives from which she draws interventions include cognitive, behavioral, interpersonal, and the practice of mindfulness.
