Areas of Specialization

My professional interests primarily involve ethics, legal, and professional practice issues in psychology. These include distress, impairment and self-care, the practice of telepsychology and the integration of various technologies into practice, boundary issues and multiple relationships, supervision, confidentiality, informed consent, and advocacy, among others. I am also interested in mentoring, professional development, business of practice, and treatment of children and adolescents.
