I bring to my work scholarship in developmental psychology. I received my doctorate in the Human Development program of the Catholic University of America, and I was a post-doctoral fellow in the Clinical Research Training Program at Harvard Medical School. I am currently an adjunct faculty member, teaching Life Span Development, in the Professional Psychology program at the George Washington University.
With a background in developmental and clinical science, I received clinical training through a respecialization program at the George Washington University, where the focus was primarily on cognitive-behavioral therapy. I completed an internship at CPC Health Inc. and Chestnut Lodge Hospital, where the focus was primarily on psychodynamic treatment.
I have over 30 years experience in special education, residential treatment and clinical settings. Most recently, I was a mental health provider in the Model Asperger Program at the Ivymount School. I also provided clinical consultation and psychoeducational groups to participants in the Reaching Out Program of the Jubilee Association of Maryland. Currently, in addition to my private psychotherapy practice, I am a content consultant to Floreo Inc., which is developing virtual reality teaching tools for individuals with ASD.
