I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in work with children, adolescents, and families. A substantial part of my practice focuses on work with individuals presenting with neurological and behavioral issues, including Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, NVLD, mood and anxiety disorders.
I started my education at Texas A&M University with an undergraduate degree in psychology, with a minor in business management. Later, I completed a research focused Masters in Psychology at Mississippi State University, and both a clinically focused Masters of Arts and Doctorate of Psychology at California School of Professional Psychology. I completed my internship and post-doctoral fellowship training at Children’s Medical Center in Tulsa, OK.
Since moving to Colorado in 1999, I have continued my work with children, families and couples in private practice, have provided management and corporate consultation in response to employee difficulties and crisis situations, and have worked extensively with developing young adults struggling to find independence despite their challenges with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Nonverbal Learning Disorder, and a variety of complicating learning disabilities. Now, I oversee the behavioral component of our work with students at Humanex Academy, and supervise our training program as part of my role as Field Instructor for the University of Denver.
