Professional Qualifications and Credentials
I have had an independent psychology practice focused solely on providing individual and couple psychotherapy since 2006. I have worked in several university counseling centers where I provided psychotherapy and a range of other psychoeducational services to undergraduate and graduate students in addition to offering clinical training and supervision to graduate students in counseling, social work, and psychology doctoral programs.
I have been continuously licensed and practicing as a psychologist since 2002. I am currently licensed as a clinical psychologist in the Commonwealth of Virginia. I earned a Ph.D. in counseling psychology from the Pennsylvania State University and completed a one-year predoctoral internship and a one-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Center for Counseling and Student Development at the University of Delaware. All of my doctoral and post-doctoral training programs are fully accredited by the American Psychological Association.
