Biography

I have 35 years of experience in the mental health field, providing services in public schools, private practice settings, and county mental health clinics. I have worked with school aged children, sex offenders, methadone dependent clients, as well as individuals with comorbid mental health and chemical dependency issues.  As a Forensic Psychologist I worked for the courts in completing child custiody evaluations. Besides seeing clients for psychtherapy, I have experience as a CAPIC coordinator for the Orange County Behavioral health. Additionally, I implemented the Neurobehavioral Testing Unit for the County of Orange.

My interests include, supervision, psychological assessment focusing on learning and developmental  disabilities and clinical assessment of personality and psychopathology.   My specialities include, assessment, treatment and diagnosis of chemical dependency and psychotherapy with personality disorders.

I am pleased and honored to teach for the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, helping to train the psychological professionals of tomorrow.
