More About Me


I received my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in human sexuality from the University of Kansas in 2007. Afterward I completed my internship at Dwight D. Eisenhower Veterans Administration Medical Center in Leavenworth, Kansas, where I worked with military veterans and their families. I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the Commonwealth of Virginia.


I joined the Radford University faculty in fall 2007. Prior to coming to Radford, I worked as a researcher on a grant funded by the Department of Labor that sought to examine the job-seeking and job-maintenance strategies of individuals with disabilities. My current research is in the areas of human sexuality, the impact of behavior on public policy, and conflict in close relationships.

Clinical Practice

I maintain a busy private practice for therapy in Blacksburg, Virginia, where I work with clients and couples regarding issues related to substance abuse, trauma, sexual identity, and other life concerns. 
My approach is called "integrative" with an emphasis on psychodynamic theory. This approach is tailored toward the needs of each client; however, emphasis is placed on early relationship experiences and how these patterns are continued in our adult life. I use a variety of techniques in therapy to find what will work best for each client, including dialogue, interpretation, cognitive behavior therapy, self-monitoring experiments, visualization, journal-keeping, drawing, and reading books.

Business Consultation

Since 2008 I have worked with organizations ranging from small mom and pop shops to large corporations to help them increase productivity, boost employee satisfaction, and improve personnel selection. I would be happy to partner with you to find ways to help your business or organization operate at an optimal level.
