I am a clinical psychologist at the counseling center at Washington and Lee University, where I have worked since 2002. I completed my B.A. in Psychology and English from the University of Virginia and my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Kent State University. My areas of expertise include women’s issues, eating disorders, relationships, diversity, positive psychology, mindfulness, and self-compassion.
