Psy.D. Adler University, 2013
I am a licensed psychologist specializing in assessment and evaluations. I earned three bachelor’s degrees from the University of Findlay in Psychology, Integrated Science, and Philosophy/Comparative Religion. I attained a master’s degree in Counseling from Adler University-Chicago, as well as a Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology with specialization in Neuropsychology. I am currently a member of the National Register of Health Service Psychologists.
I have worked in large urban hospitals administering neuropsychological testing to adults suffering from stroke, movement disorders, genetic abnormalities, traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer’s disease, and epilepsy. I have also worked in community mental health clinics providing psychotherapy to primarily homeless clients who struggled with substance abuse, and private practice settings evaluating and providing therapy for children, adolescents, and adults with developmental delay, autism, behavior disorders, mental or physical disability, and learning disorders. I also have experience in research, collecting data for two government funded clinical drug trials within the spinal cord injury population at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago in addition to my dissertation which focused on visuospatial deficits in patients with Parkinson’s disease.
