I've been a DU Clinical faculty member and Training Clinic Director of the Counseling and Educational Services Clinic for the past seven years. I previously worked as the Director of the Iliff Counseling Center for six years. I completed a Postdoc at University Health System Detention Health Care Services in San Antonio, Texas, and completed a Pre-doctoral Internship at Denver Health Medical Center. My clinical interests include supervision, social justice, and trauma, and my research interest is in intimate partner violence. Some of my other professional activities are: Past President of the Colorado Society of Psychologists in Private Practice for two years, founding member of the Colorado Psychological Association Society for the Advancement of Multiculturalism and Diversity, and presenter at the American Psychological Association, the Association of Psychology Training Clinics, the International Association for Suicide Prevention, and the National Summit on Interpersonal Violence and Abuse Across the Lifespan. Outside of work, I enjoy hiking different parts of Colorado, exploring Denver's food and music scenes, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
