I am a Licensed Psychologist in the State of Georgia. I received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Minnesota and a Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Baylor University. I have maintained an independent private practice since 1989 and have worked in a variety of settings, including universities such as Georgia State and Emory, and nonprofit organizations, such as the American Cancer Society, Jewish Family & Career Services, and the CDC Foundation. I am currently working at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

I have been involved in the Georgia Psychological Association over the years and have participated on several boards, including serving as Chair of Division H. I have been a consultant to many organizations, such as the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB), where I developed test items for the examination used to license psychologists in the U.S. and Canada. Throughout my career it has been important to me to continue to learn more by engaging in ongoing professional training. In 2009, I completed the Global Mental Health: Trauma and Recovery Certification Program through Harvard University and in 2015 I became a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist.
