I am a licensed clinical psychologist and have been in practice since 2005. I earned my Master’s and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Xavier University’s APA accredited graduate program in Cincinnati, Ohio.  I completed an APA accredited pre-doctoral internship from Denver Health Medical Center and my post-doctoral fellowship in the Leadership Education in Adolescent Health program, at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The clinical settings where I have worked include college mental health, juvenile probation, and inpatient, outpatient, and primary care settings. My work since 2005 has been serving college students’ and adults’ general mental health needs, including eating disorders and body image. Currently, I am teaching graduate students who are developing clinicians.
