I am presently licensed as a clinical psychologist and Health Service Provider of Psychology in the state of Indiana as well as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Indiana. I bring 20 years of experience of working in the mental health field in various settings and at different levels of capacity.
Throughout my career I have always enjoyed teaching and training individuals within the field and I have served as a supervisor on many occasions. My philosophy regarding teaching in an academic setting is to make the course material as applicable to the real world and the world of work as possible for my students. I believe in building strong relationships with my students in order to assist them in successfully achieving their academic and career goals.
