I graduated with my PhD in Clinical Psychology in 2008 from Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in Illinois. I am licensed as a Psychologist in California (PSY23355). When I am not teaching for Saybrook, I am a Senior Supervising Psychologist at Napa State Hospital in Napa, CA. My professional interests are in the areas of serious and persistent mental illness, forensic psychology, neuropsychology, research methods, and most recently, I have begun exploring the use of technology in mental health.
