Therapeutic Style:

My therapeutic style is integrative applying cognitive behavioral theories, interpersonal process, and multicultural theories.  

Supervision Style:

I see myself as being a role model and strive to conduct myself professionally and with integrity.  I strive to be respectful of my supervisees and expect the same in return, including our both being mindful of individual differences and our assumptive worlds.  I think supervision is a collaborative process in which learning and growth occurs. My supervision approach is from a developmental perspective and I try to meet supervisees where they are.  I believe my supervision style is task-oriented, supportive and encouraging, and prescriptive.  I see supervision conversations addressing clinical work; diversity factors; professional ethics; and professional development and identity. 

Professional Interests:

My professional interests are working with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, relational concerns, multicultural issues, and conducting LD/ADHD/ASD testing. 

Groups and Liaison Roles:

I facilitate the Living and Succeeding with ADHD group, and I am a liaison to Office of Diversity and Inclusion ACCESS Collaborative Program.

Education background:

I received my bachelor's (Psychology) and Psy.D. (Clinical Psychology) degrees from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.

Personal Interests:

In my free time, I enjoy competitive volleyball, mystery/suspense books and movies, quality time with my loved ones.
