Clinical & Scholarly Interests:

Specialty areas are Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation psychology. Clinical focus involves the adult assessment process, where teaching students to become more competent clinicians through keen inquisition, active examination of client history and presenting issues, fortification of test administration, case conceptualization, report writing, and thoughtful recommendations to address a variety of clinical issues, is my primary goal. Research interests include examination of changing norms in collegiate education, the relationship of medical dysfunction to cognitive difficulties, neurocognitive ability and incarceration, mental illness in the elderly, how affect relates to rehabilitation engagement and recovery, and the relationship of video gaming and development of self.
