I am a passionate practitioner in the field of clinical psychology, dividing my time between clinical practice, training, and consulting. In my clinical practice, I’m trained to administer a wide selection of psychological assessment tools, to diagnose different disorders, and work in a therapeutic setting with a variety of age ranges and diagnoses.
My therapeutic approach is eclectic, and guided by the needs of the individual client, family, or group. Here at 360 Behavioral Health, I’ve applied this approach in my position as Dean of 360 University. In my role, I train clinicians and teammates at different stages of their professional experience. Our 360 University program develops treatment manuals that help standardize practice and improve quality of care. We also provide direction for productive career paths and enhanced job satisfaction for our teammates.
I feel my life purpose is to positively impact lives and to be a lifelong learner, so that I will be the most effective clinician. I find it gratifying to mentor others, and to consult with those that have mentored me throughout my development as a clinician. My work is a privilege. It allows me to witness dramatic transformation in my clients, mentees, and myself.
I received my undergraduate degree in psychology from Siena College in New York then earned my Master of Arts. in clinical counseling in Chicago. I completed my doctorate degree at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology with an emphasis in neuropsychology.
I’ve worked in several related organizations as well, including as clinical case coordinator for Parsons Family and Child Center, behavior interventionist and pre-doctoral intern at Center for Autism and Related Disorders (C.A.R.D.), clinical therapist at Canyon Ridge Hospital, advanced practicum extern at Children’s Hospital-Los Angeles, and post-doctoral psychological assistant under the supervision of Dr. Ali Sadeghi of Autism Response Team.
I am dedicated to setting and adhering to high standards for the field of psychology and applied behavior analysis, and I use my experience to expand the number of qualified practitioners in the field.
