Staff Psychologist at the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities, Georgia Regional Hospital. Research focus on the role of empathy in medical students. Applied work in developing curriculum to foster empathy in individuals and within organizations.
Though it may be a bit cliche, "Help me help you..." has been a powerful message in my nearly 15 years' experience in a variety of multidisciplinary settings (e.g., inpatient, hospital, residential, outpatient/community, school, college, forensic). I believe in the power of resilience and self-empowerment.
My primary orientation is Cognitive-Behavioral; I also have a masters in psychodynamic (along with training and supervision) and pull from other evidenced-based practices as well. I am credentialed as a National Health Service Psychologist, so my practice is comprehensive and incorporates more than just thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
I engage in forensic evaluations providing opinions to State and Superior Courts on the serious and persistently mentally ill. However, I also have a depth and breadth of experience with children and adolescents and currently engage in Telehealth through breakthrough.com. Lastly, I teach, research (empathy), and consult to businesses.
