Download CV  

I have been both a faculty member and clinical psychologist for many years and continue in both these roles. I have taught undergraduate and graduate courses in the Department of Rehabilitation Psychology with more of a focus on the group counseling and internship courses.
I also assisted the University of Wisconsin Athletic Department initiate an in house clinical and sport psychology program from 2015-2019; after this I returned to my private psychology practice. I specialize in working with individuals who are in high stress positions, such as athletes, business leaders and medical professionals. I also see many adults for coping with disability, injury and the rehabilitation process. I feel fortunate to combine teaching and practice in my professional life.
