What led you to the clinical mental health profession?

I originally wanted to become an FBI profiler. My main goal has always been to be of service to my community as a psychological professional. 

What population of clients do you serve? Why that group?

My client population has changed drastically over the years. I first began working with adults who misused substances, then to men in a medium security prison, to adults/teens in a primary care clinic, and now providing assessments to children from age 6 to adults. I find kids challenging but in a good way. My first doctoral practicum was in pediatric neuropsych. and the rest, as they say, is history…

What type of work were you doing before coming to CPA?

My position was very similar to my work at CPA. I was the director of assessment services so along with conducting comprehensive evaluations I also oversaw staff, a budget, and was a clinical supervisor for students and post-doctoral psychologists. 

If you recently moved to NC (or the GSO area), where did you move from and what will you miss the most?

My wife and I recently moved to NC from Anchorage, AK in May 2023. I will miss a lack of humidity. and the mountains. Alaska has the tallest peak in North America. 

What is something that you enjoy doing for fun?

I love to hike and travel. Exploring new places and cultures is one of my passions. 

Share a fun fact about yourself!

I love sharks and if I was not a psychologist I probably would have been a marine biologist. Jaws came out the year I was born so it must be some sort of sign I was destined to love sharks. 

If you are currently in need of a psychological evaluation, please call our front office at (336) 272-0855 to be connected with a clinician. If you are currently seeing a CPA therapist and are interested in a psychological evaluation, speak with your therapist to determine if this is a good fit for you and they can connect you with a clinician from there.
