I am a psychologist at Counseling and Consultation Service (CCS) and am embedded in the Colleges of Nursing, Dentistry, and Public Health.

I completed my undergraduate at Xavier University in Cincinnati, OH and my doctoral training in Clinical Psychology at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, IL. The majority of my training and work experiences have been in university counseling centers. I completed my internship at University of Pittsburgh Counseling Center and my post-doctoral residency at Duquesne University, both in Pittsburgh, PA. I then took a staff psychologist position at the University of Houston Counseling and Psychological Services in Houston, TX, worked there for four years, and became the Group Program Coordinator. I’m a licensed psychologist in Ohio and am looking forward to working with OSU students for years to come. My current position at the university is a new one, as it began just two years ago when I started. This position was created in order to best serve our professional students and increase accessibility to services.

I will be housed within the College of Nursing on Mondays from 8am-5pm and my office is located in the Dean’s Suite of Newton Hall. To schedule an appointment or inquire about services, please email me at:
