Single year softball player turned multi year gymnast turned college diver, I was destined to become a sport psychologist. Always just good enough to play but with mental blocks galore, it made sense that my path would lead me to help others identify and remove barriers.
After spending 4 wonderful years in Oxford, OH at Miami University (heart eyes), I moved to Keene, NH to pursue my PsyD in Clinical Psychology at Antioch University New England. Along the way I obtained one Master's degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch and another in Sport Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
Since my time in NH, I have had a variety of experiences that have strengthened my skills as a psychologist and improved my specialization in work with athletes. I have worked in college counseling centers, private practice, integrated primary care, and athletic departments.
Two of my proudest achievements were building, from the ground up, both a college counseling center at a regional campus of a major university and a counseling and sport psychology department within a power 5 athletics department. I have extensive experience working with high school, collegiate, and professional athletes as well as executives, couples, and traditional mental health clients.
I regularly provide invited lectures and presentations to a variety of organizations, sit on organizational boards and committees, and serve on dissertation committees.
I'm a proud mom to a really cool kiddo and a happy wife to a fabulous sports marketer. I occasionally sign up for races to keep me sharp and to remind me of all of those mental blocks that got me into this field in the first place!
