I am a psychologist, who has been licensed to practice psychology in Colorado since 1994. Before moving to Colorado in 1995, I attended graduate school and worked in California. I also earned a law degree in 1983 from Tulane Law School and practiced law for three years (in Louisiana and New Mexico) before going back to school to earn a Master’s and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology.
Although I no longer practice law, I still use my legal education in my work today. My psychology practice is divided into three main areas: psychotherapy, psychological evaluations and alternative dispute resolution work. I work in both domestic relations and criminal law.
In criminal law, I conduct psychological evaluations for competency, insanity and mitigation at sentencing. While the bulk of my work in this area is defense-oriented, I have been appointed by both Federal and State Courts and have worked for various probation offices (both federal and state).
In domestic relations, I conduct Parental Responsibilities Evaluations and do Divorce-Specific Psychotherapy.
In Alternative Dispute Work, I serve as a Mediator/Arbitrator and as a Parenting-Coordinator/Decision-Maker in divorce cases.
I also provide psychotherapy for adults, adolescents, couples and families. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions about these services.
