I speak: English
My gender: Female
Where I practice
I am a clinical psychologist/neuropsychologist who has had the opportunity to work in the health care industry since graduating from University of Georgia three decades ago. In my first position, I worked with patients who had traumatic brain injuries. After working for several years, I obtained my master's degree in rehabilitation counseling. I did this type of work as far away as Montana and served patients who had suffered brain injuries, as well as those who had industrial/physical accidents. After many years and changes to health care, I went back to school later in life and earned my doctorate in clinical psychology/neuropsychology. I completed an internship at Vanderbilt University and a formal two-year post-doctoral fellowship at Emory University in the Department of Neurology. My most recent position was with the U.S. Army, working with veterans, their families and active duty members. I started working with Kaiser Permanente in 2014, and I am excited about being back in Atlanta and working with the wonderful providers in our Behavioral Health Department.
About my practice
I am a clinical psychologist/neuropsychologist, and I see both adult and geriatric populations. Following an evaluation, I like to schedule a follow-up appointment to discuss the results and offer information, education and functional recommendations to assist members and their families.
How I thrive
Although life does not offer much time for respite these days, I do make sure that I find some way to laugh every day, as well as to walk my four-legged canine kids. I think dogs are the most wonderful creatures and I am a huge advocate for animal rescue. I do not travel much, as I go nowhere without my dogs, but when I do, I choose to go to the mountains. Being out in nature is very enjoyable for me, as well as to them. And seeing my dogs happy is an absolute joy for me that warms my heart and helps me thrive.
