I received my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the APA accredited Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, Illinois and my Master’s Degree in Forensic Psychology from the same school. I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Minor in Biology from Texas Lutheran University in Seguin, Texas.
I am currently a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Clinical Neuropsychology at the Applied Psychology Group of Texoma, and I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults. I completed an APA accredited Pre-Doctoral Internship at the Western Kentucky Psychology Internship Consortium in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. While there, I worked part-time in a community mental health setting where I conducted therapy and psychological assessments across the lifespan. The other half of my time was spent working at a state psychiatric hospital where I did assessments and therapy with adults experiencing serious mental illness.
Throughout my training, I have had a variety of experiences in different settings with diverse individuals. I have worked with the court conducting psychological assessments with those on probation; in a private psychiatric hospital providing individual and group therapy to children, adolescents, and adults experiencing serious mental illness; and in multiple private practices conducting neuropsychological assessments with children, adolescents, and adults. Additionally, during my Master’s level training, I provided therapy to children in foster care and to parents involved with child protective services. Over the course of my training I have become particularly interested in the treatment of trauma and ways in which physical as well as emotional trauma effect the brain.
