Background

I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio. I received my bachelor's degree (Psychology) at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. I completed my doctoral training in Clinical Psychology at Wright State University School of Professional Psychology. I was clinically trained as a generalist practitioner. My therapy approach is integrative, drawing from person-centered, cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal therapies, while considering salient cultural factors.

Research and Clinical Interests

My research interests have included studying the relationship between emotional intelligence and visceral self-perception, and exploring emotional communication in black families. My clinical interests include anxiety disorders, mood disorders, adjustment disorders, multicultural factors, and ADHD/LD/ASD assessment.
