I am a licensed clinical psychologist (10 years +) and my practice focuses on conducting empirically-informed forensic evaluations and trainings in threat assessment and all forms of interpersonal exploitation and violence victimization. I use an integrative approach drawing from best practices in current assessment research and utilizing trauma-informed clinical interviewing. My areas of expertise include sexual harassment and workplace violence, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, domestic violence, domestic homicides, and sex and labor trafficking. Issues I have evaluated include trauma and PTSD, violence risk, coercive controlling tactics, dissociation and memory issues, sexual grooming, trauma bonding and traumatic attachments.

My research and clinical work are embedded in multicultural and international contexts and I engage to provide a nuanced understanding of each individual's situation. I work with heterosexual and queer populations; I have worked in many different languages (Arabic, French, Indonesian, Spanish, Russian, Mandarin, Korean) using appropriate interpreters.

I am a Professor of Psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Deputy Director of the Forensic Mental Health Counseling Program, Coordinator, Victim Services Track in Forensic Mental Health Counseling, and Coordinator, Advanced Certificate in Victimology. I have authored over 40 articles and two books on related topics.
