Biography

Credentials

My work within the child welfare system has exposed me to a wide and varied array of complex psychological and emotional problems. It has afforded me training in a variety of treatment modalities, has cultivated a skillful diagnostician and prepared me well for my work in private practice.

As both a patient and student of psychotherapy I have been able to experience first-hand the benefits of talk therapy.  


As a student, I found the subject matter and process to be intrinsically interesting and became fascinated by learning more about human behavior.  I continued my studies in psychology as both an undergraduate and graduate student.
 
Upon graduation, I worked as a medical social worker, a counselor in a psychiatric treatment center and provided behavioral therapy to children on the autistic spectrum. My work with children and families continued for the next 9 years. I have worked with children and parents who have experienced a psychological trauma in a variety of capacities: as a clinician, a clinical supervisor, a psychometrician and an evaluator.
