They are licensed to provide a number of service, including evaluations, therapy and other evidence-based treatments.

About MeAs the primary consulting rehabilitation psychologist for the Stroke Rehabilitation and General Rehabilitation units at Dodd Hall, I provide consultation in areas such as psycho-education, behavioral management, adjustment to rehabilitation, capacity evaluation and neuropsychological evaluation.
My responsibilities include performing outpatient neuropsychological evaluations for a wide range of patients. I specialize in mild to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), as well as evaluations following a stroke or other neurological injury. I enjoy working closely with both my patients and their families throughout the recovery process. I believe that individualized patient care should incorporate education to ensure that patients and families remain aware of the patient’s condition and feel at ease knowing they are receiving the best possible treatment.
I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because the environment truly fosters teamwork. As a member of the interdisciplinary team for the rehabilitation unit, I have the opportunity to work closely with a variety of specialists.
I find this exciting and beneficial, as well as important to improving the quality of patient care. While I find my work to be personally rewarding, I also enjoy playing sports, attending Ohio State football games and relaxing with my family.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
