I am a clinical psychologist licensed in the state of Colorado (#3829). I am authorized through PsyPACT to practice telepsychology in select other states with established patients who have first been seen in Colorado. For details: https://psypact.site-ym.com/page/psypactmap
I completed a Bachelor's degree in psychology at Fort Lewis College in 2002. Following my undergraduate education I worked in a variety of clinical arenas including: residential treatment centers for children/adolescents, National Jewish Health medical center, private psychology and neuropsychology practices. At these sites I provided services such as milieu therapy, group therapy, neuropsychological testing assistance and research assistance.
I later attended the University of Denver where I completed a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) in 2011. During my training I participated in clinical externships at Kaiser Permanente Behavioral Health Eating Disorders Program, Denver Public Schools, the University of Colorado Boulder CAPS Program and private psychology practices. During this time I received 2.5 years of specialty training in screening, diagnosing and treating autism spectrum disorders.
Following completion of my graduate school training I worked at Kaiser Permanente from 2011 to 2017. While at Kaiser I was privileged to work in Behavioral Health for 5 years helping construct the Developmental Pediatrics and Autism Program. In that capacity I provided clinical services such a screenings, diagnostic evaluations for autism, care coordination, social skills programs, group therapy, parent education and specialty psychotherapy. I also provided administrative services such as program development and coordination with other departments within Kaiser and vendor relations with outside providers. In addition I have worked within the Kaiser Behavioral Health outpatient department to provide psychotherapy to individuals of all ages and presenting concerns.
In addition to providing clinical services in private practice I stay active in continuing education and in our community:
I regularly meet with other psychologists and psychiatrists for consultation regarding particular treatment strategies, and for ongoing continuing education.
I offer clinical consultation/supervision services to graduate students and licensed mental health professionals.
I am also available for providing education to schools, universities and private organizations regarding issues around Autism Spectrum Disorders, neurodiversity, mental health and therapeutic gaming. Please inquire with me about speaking fees if you are interested in trainings or presentations.
