My training

I received my Psychology Bachelor’s Degree from Johns Hopkins University and my Clinical Psychology Doctorate from American University. As part of my doctoral training, I completed a pre-doctoral internship at Catholic University. I also completed a number of externships, including at Georgetown University, Greenbelt Cares, and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. After I received my doctorate, I worked as the sexual trauma specialist at Georgetown University. In 2012, I joined a Washingtonian Top-Rated psychiatry practice. There, I treated clients with a range of presenting concerns and often consulted with a team of clinicians. 

I am actively engaged in my own growth and education as a psychologist. I recently completed a two-year advanced training program in Group Psychotherapy from the Washington School of Psychiatry.
