I have been with TCSPP since September 2007 as an adjunct faculty member in the MACC program. I was hired as a full time staff member in the APP department in April 2008 and most recently promoted to Assistant Faculty member in the International Psychology PhD department in October of 2013. My career has largely focused on delivery of clinical services to a variety of underserved populations including: children and adolescents, LGBT and HIV/AIDS counseling and disclosure issues, the adult chronically mentally ill, and substance abuse and dependence. I currently am advancing my dissertation research which was a cross cultural study exploring disclosure decisions of sexual identity between Brazil and the U.S. and will add the cultural cohort of Istanbul, Turkey in Summer 2014.

In 2018 I was promoted to Associate professor for the IP department and currently serve as Online Faculty Council Chair, hold membership on the National Faculty Council, IRB, and act as Research Methods and Dissertation Lead for the department. I am faculty Lead for our Hong Kong doctoral and MA Field Experience and co-lead for Brazil.
