Clinical Interests: I spend a majority of my time in the provision, training, and supervision of psychological assessment of ADHD, learning disorders, and personality. I work from a therapeutic assessment model, helping clients use the process of psychological testing to learn more about themselves and to make informed decisions about their lives. I also provide crisis services, as well as brief individual and couples’ psychotherapy. I am particularly interested in relationships and intimacy concerns, parenting struggles, students involved in fraternities and sororities, and the intersection between psychology and law enforcement.
