Office hours: I'm in my office or at our training clinic on most days.  Please feel free to drop by when my door is open or email to arrange a specifi time to meet, if that is more convenient.
Professional Work

I am a clinical psychologist in the Department of Psychology.  My focus is training students to master the competencies needed to be effective clinical psychologists and health services providers, and on the synthesis of research and clinical skills.  I coordinate practicum training  in our program.  I’m also interested in multicultural competencies and training in working with people who have varied backgrounds and identities.

I provide clinical supervision at the Harris Psychological Services Center, a psychological services center run by graduate students that serves the Lexington community, providing low-cost and sliding scale fee therapy, assessment, and psycho-educational groups. I also coordinate the external practicum training for the Ph.D. students in our clinical psychology program. 

For applicants to our clinical psychology program, please note that I do not run a lab or take on students as a research mentor.  I work with all of our clinical students through clinical supervision, course work, professional development and the clinical aspects of training.
