I entered my graduate program to combine psychology and law - primarily I wanted to work with children and adolescents who were forced into the legal arena. I graduated from Golden Gate University School of Law in 2002 and then completed my doctorate in psychology from Pacific Graduate School of Psychology in 2004. In graduate school, I completed my certification in Neuropsychological Assessment, interned at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs and Stanford University. My postdoctoral training in Neuropsychology was completed at Brown University/Butler Hospital.
My practice as a family law litigator in the San Francisco Bay Area has shaped my clinical and forensic practice and I have returned to doing what I truly enjoy - evaluation and assessment work, especially when looking at a potentially vulnerable population. Part of my work includes parenting evaluations, criminal evaluations and neuropsychological assessments, including geriatric assessments.
I also teach in the Counseling and Clinical Psychology Departments at Argosy University. And, I try to enjoy the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
