More about me: One of my primary passions is providing education and supervision to psychologists in training.  From teaching courses ranging from psychopharmacology to psychotherapy to training predoctoral and postdoctoral psychology interns and fellows, it is an honor to mentor and shape our wonderful trainees and training program every year.  Also an avid pet lover and football fan, I enjoy spending time with my pets and screaming at the TV on Sundays.  This prepares me to commit myself fully to guiding my clients in the processes of change and growth, a job that is both inspiring and challenging on a daily basis.
