About Me

I took a long route to clinical psychology.  After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I did a stint in politics -- and then worked as a newspaper reporter for four years.  I became interested in psychology when volunteering for several years at Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos, a home in Mexico for vulnerable children.  After returning to the United States, I obtained a Ph.D. in clinical and community psychology from the University of South Carolina, followed by a clinical internship and postdoctoral work at the Yale University School of Medicine.  I worked as a college professor for a decade before returning to clinical work. ​​

​When not working, I enjoy spending time with my children, hiking, riding my bicycle, taking pictures, reading, and seeing movies and plays.
