Education and Training
I am a Licensed Psychologist and Health Service Provider in North Carolina. In addition, I am a member of the North Carolina Psychological Association, Mecklenburg Psychological Association, and Association for Contextual Behavior Science.
I received my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Roosevelt University in Chicago, Illinois. During my graduate training, I focused on working with children, adolescents, and adults. I also worked in diverse settings such as in a juvenile detention center, psychiatric unit of a hospital, community mental health center, and high school. In addition, I conducted an extensive amount of psychological and psychoeducational assessments during my training.
I completed my predoctoral internship at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte Counseling Center. Although I was trained as a generalist, I demonstrated a special interest in working with clients with substance abuse and disordered eating concerns.
My post doctoral training was completed at Dore Academy, a private school that specializes in working with children with learning and attention disabilities and the Charlotte Center for Balanced Living, which specializes in working with clients with disordered eating. Both of these experiences combined with my graduate training contributed to my wealth of knowledge in working with diverse clinical concerns and in diverse clinical settings.
Currently, I am in private practice as an independent practitioner. In addition, I have had contracts with Presbyterian hospital and the NC Department of Juvenile Justice.
