Education & Training
I earned my doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Oklahoma State University in 1997. I completed my internship at the Missouri Health Sciences Psychology Consortium during 1996-97.
I practiced as a licensed psychologist in a child mental health clinic in Columbia, MO from 1998-2000. I moved to Lincoln in 2000 and began private practice in this community that I am proud to call home. I have also taught abnormal psychology at UNL and supervised the clinical practicum training of UNL graduate students in Clinical Psychology and in School Psychology.

My primary orientation is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is a short-term, goal-directed approach that changes negative patterns of thinking and behavior to help solve problems, feel better emotionally, and develop better coping skills.
My goal is to provide each client with care that is tailored to individual needs and is offered in a culturally-sensitive and respectful environment. I provide evidence-based treatments for each diagnosis or presenting problem.
