I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with areas of expertise involving testing, assessment, evaluation, and therapy with emphasis on Health Psychology. I strive to make sure individuals feel welcome and safe so they can take steps to gain understanding of the concerns that cause disruption in their lives and health. I can assist with school and college accommodations and intervention as well as risk evaluations for human resources departments, colleges, universities, and places of employment. I can conduct a variety of pre-screenings/evaluations such as for bariatric surgery, gender transitions, fitness for duty, return to work, and disability exams.

My background includes work in hospitals, universities, and forensic settings. My clinical focus tends to be with teenagers to geriatric populations of all backgrounds. When providing therapy, I have an eclectic approach and lean heavily on Cognitive-Behavioral, Interpersonal, and Person-Centered frameworks.

I received my pre-doctoral training at St. John's Mercy Hospital in Springfield, MO. I hold a Doctorate of Psychology in Clinical Psychology and Masters of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Midwestern University. I began my educational background by completing a Bachelors of Arts in Biology and Psychology at Greenville College. www.BehavioralHealth.center
