I am delighted at your interest in therapy and excited to share some of my background so that you may make an informed decision as you choose your next mental health provider.
I received my doctorate in March of 2015 from the APA accredited American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University: San Francisco Bay Area. My pre-doctoral internship was completed at the County of Orange Healthcare Center’s Youth Reporting Center, a day treatment facility for school aged probationers. I spent my post-doctoral residency working with adult offenders at Farmington and Potosi Correctional Centers in Missouri. In addition to my work as a independent psychologist, I currently work as a Clinical Psychologist in the Child Development Center of a Federally Qualified Healthcare Center (FQHC) in St. Louis City.
I've obtained a master’s degree in sociology from the University of Central Missouri and spent two years working as a case manager for a contracted agency with Missouri Children’s Division. I remain passionate about the assessment and treatment of children who have experienced abuse and/or neglect, as well individuals who are or have spent time in the foster care system.
