I have been licensed as a psychologist in the State of Georgia (Georgia license—PSY002281) since December 1998. 

I received my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the Department of Educational and Counseling Psychology at the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO in 1997. I completed my pre-doctoral clinical internship at Counseling and Testing at the University of Georgia in 1996, to fulfill clinical requirements for my Ph.D.

After completing my clinical internship, I accepted a position at Georgia Southern University’s Counseling and Career Development Center (C&CDC). At C&CDC, I served first as a Psychologist and later as Assistant Director for Training until 2005. Throughout my tenure at C&CDC I maintained an active client caseload.

From 2005 to 2015 I worked at Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) at the University Health Center at the University of Georgia. I served in a variety of roles at CAPS, including as Associate Directors for Education, Consultation, and Outreach and Clinical Services and during my final year as a Staff Psychologist. While serving in administrative roles at CAPS, I maintained an active client caseload.

In 2014, I started a part-time private practice at my current location and transitioned to full-time private practice in August 2015.

Prior to these educational and work experiences, I worked from 1991-1996 for the Missouri Department of Corrections providing mental health services to incarcerated women. My dissertation, completed in 1997, focused on personality subtypes and predictors of criminality in incarcerated women. During my clinical training at the University of Missouri, between 1986-1990, I provided individual and group counseling services to students.

My Approach

Consistent with my training in counseling psychology, my approach to working with clients is strengths-based, focusing on environmental and situational factors that influence their behavior, as well as issues of diversity and social justice. My approach is client-centered, collaborative, and relationship-focused. I believe in using the counseling relationship to address a variety of client concerns. My work is dynamically informed, focusing on the impact of developmental experiences in shaping behavior. I also use a variety of other evidence-based approaches learned through my training, work experiences, and continuing education (e.g., Interpersonal Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT).
