I have always known I wanted to be a psychologist as I have always been intrigued by what makes people think, feel, and behave in the ways they do. My journey as a psychologist has taken some wonderful twists and turns over the years, which has allowed me to cultivate a professional path most true to myself.
Throughout my graduate training I obtained a comprehensive and diverse training skill set. Specifically, I worked extensively in the public and alternative school settings, conducting assessments for learning and emotional disabilities and providing psychotherapy for children and adolescents, as well as consulting with parents and schools. Additionally, a significant portion of my doctoral internship involved evaluating and treating child and adolescent victims of sexual abuse, as well as juvenile sex offenders. I also provided an array of psychological services in inpatient and outpatient settings for young adult and adult populations with mild to severe mental health issues.
These invaluable clinical experiences have promoted a natural evolution of my work over time. For the past 16 years, I have been providing psychotherapy for adolescents, young adults, adults, and families for a variety of psychological needs. I truly enjoy what I do and find my work quite rewarding.
