Professional Work

I am a clinical psychologist in the Department of Psychology.  My focus is graduate level clinical training. Specifically, I focus on training students to master the competencies needed to be effective clinical psychologists and health services providers, and on the integration of research and clinical skills.  I coordinate and integrate practicum training into graduate level work in our program.  I’m also interested in multicultural competencies and training in working with people who have varied cultural backgrounds, sexual orientation, class differences, etc.

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 supervise students doing clinical work at the Harris Psychological Services Center.  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 and the clinical aspects of training.
