Experienced Ph.D. level, DBT psychotherapist who has over 25 yrs. experience working with special education with a concentration in emotional disturbance and dual-diagnosis clients.

I completed my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Walden University in May 2021, and received an M.S. in General Psychology from Walden University in 2007, an M.S. in Special Education from Southern Connecticut State University in 1997, and a B.A. in Psychology from Southern University at New Orleans. As a substance specialist, I coordinated a professional intensive out-patient, dual-diagnosis program with Care Plus, Natchaug Hospital, a division of Hartford Hospital. I am a strong advocate for emotional disabled students and dual diagnosed individuals; I am also a member of the American Psychological Association, Positive Parenting of Connecticut, and the North American Society for Adlerian Psychology (NASAP), a certified Dialectal Behavioral Therapist, with training in grief counseling, as well as a SMART Recovery therapist. I believe in an individual’s ability to strive for success and overcome misdirected goals. Areas of professional interests are brain-based learning, mindful meditation, and positive psychology. My projects include supporting the Black and Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) group to address the historic trauma and social changes in their communities, and I am an honored member of Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology since 2007. Currently, I am an adjunct professor for Mitchell College in New London, CT., and on July 5, 2022, I will take the position of Director of Mental Health and Wellness.
