I am a licensed clinical psychologist in part-time private practice. I am also a psychology professor at Texas State University. I earned my PhD (1999) in clinical psychology from the University of Georgia. 
My training has been primarily in cognitive-behavioral interventions, with a strong emphasis on evidence-based, empirically supported approaches to understanding, assessing, and effectively treating psychological disorders. As a professor, I regularly teach undergraduate and graduate courses in abnormal psychology, psychological testing, and neuropsychological assessment. 

In my private practice I use cognitive-behavioral interventions for treatment of anxiety disorders, PTSD, and depression, and for managing stress effectively. These strategies can also be helpful for those who may be experiencing emotional or interpersonal difficulties but do not necessarily have a psychological condition.
