I completed my undergraduate degree at Brown University, doctorate at Georgia State University, and sport psychology graduate work at Boston University. I have worked in the field for over 15 years. I am currently on faculty in the Boston University Wheelock College of Education and Human Development, where I teach and supervise the Master’s and Doctoral students in the Sport Psychology specialization of the Counseling Psychology program. I also provide professional mentoring and consultation to students and other mental health professionals across clinical and sport psychology disciplines.
I am a Certified Mental Performance Consultant (CMPC) of the Association for Applied Sport Psychology and am listed on the U.S. Olympic Committee Sport Psychology Registry. Licensed as a psychologist in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, I am a member of the American Psychological Association and its Division 47, Exercise and Sport Psychology. I have authored numerous publications, lectured at universities, hospitals and medical school programs, and presented my work at local, national, and international conferences and trainings.
In addition to my sport psychology background, I have expertise in trauma, including childhood abuse and neglect, having specialized in trauma treatment, provided training and consultation to other professionals in the field of traumatic stress, and conducted research on cutting-edge trauma treatments for more than 10 years. Prior to joining Boston University, I served as Program and Clinical Director at the Trauma Center and the Metrowest Behavioral Health Center at Justice Resource Institute. I am trained in EMDR and Critical Incident Stress Management. Check out the book I co-authored, “Treating Adult Survivors of Emotional Abuse and Neglect: Component-based Psychotherapy” (Guilford Press, 2018).
