Originally from rural southwestern Pennsylvania, I moved to Pittsburgh to pursue various career pursuits in both the finance and legal sectors. Pursuing a career in psychology was a mid-life career change for me. During my clinical training, I had the opportunity to work with college students in multiple university counseling center settings in Pennsylvania and Virginia. It was through these clinical experiences that I developed a passion for working with college students, and developed group counseling as an area of emphasis.

I enthusiastically accepted a position as a Supervised Staff Psychologist at the Carruth Center for Psychological and Psychiatric Services (CCPPS) in August of 2016. Shortly after joining the CCPPS team, I started serving as the center’s group coordinator.


When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending as much time outdoors as possible. Among my favorite outdoor activities are hiking, camping, and spending time sitting on the beach along any shoreline or coast.
