About Me

I am a licensed clinical psychologist, practicing for over 25 years. I have worked with people of all ages, including children, adolescents, and adults on a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, attention problems, learning concerns, Dyslexia, and Autism. A large part of my practice involves providing neuropsychological evaluations to children, adolescents and adults.

I earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the Oklahoma State University in 2000. I am Board Certified in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology. Additionally, I hold a Masters of Science in Education from the University of Eau Claire. I provided college instruction at Mankato University and Oklahoma State University. Also, I have provided supervision for several post-doctoral psychologists and pre-doctoral child psychology practicum students and interns.

I completed an APA accredited two-year Internship and Post-Doctoral Fellowship at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, and I worked as a Psychologist in a hospital setting in St. Cloud, Minnesota for a number of years. I opened Hope Springs in 2009, and I worked as a psychologist in Eastern Iowa for nearly 20 years.

Currently, I live in Oregon with my family and my “herd” of pets. We have enjoyed the mountains and the oceans, as well as the community. It has been nice to live by family again. I continue to serve Hope Springs’ patients using telehealth.
