Trained to think critically about your concerns
I received my undergraduate degrees at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and earned my doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Rochester. As part of my graduate training, I worked with Loisa Bennetto, Tristram Smith, and Suzannah Iadarola on a variety of projects related to understanding and improving the lives of people with autism.
I completed my clinical internship at the University of Rochester, University Counseling Center. In this role, I provided individual and group therapy to college age students with a range of presenting concerns. I also helped to implement a social skills group for students with autism and anxiety, and I served as liaison to the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.
I completed a post-doctoral fellowship within the Division of Neurodevelopmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at the University of Rochester Medical Center. In this role, I provided individual therapy to caregivers of children with developmental differences and conducted autism diagnostic evaluations. I also rotated within the Pediatric Feeding Disorders Program under the supervision of Kimberly Brown.
I am board member of the Genesee Valley Psychological Association and have worked with Autism Speaks and FACES of Autism. I am also a member of the Pittsford District PTSA and Flower City Down Syndrome Network.
