I have been practicing for over 25 years. My clinical psychology work has been with students in a university counseling center and with men, women, and teenagers in my private practice. I also do EAP work for miners and hospital employees. My approach varies with individual clients but is predominantly based on Relational, Interpersonal, and Cognitive Behavioral techniques.
My areas of expertise in psychology include women's health and psychological concerns across the lifespan, the effect of male and female gender roles on relationships, diversity in sexual orientation, Asperger/Autism in adult populations, ethics, and social justice for people with clinical diagnoses. I am also trained as an AsperCoach and I specialize in working with couples in which one or both has mild Autism.
Before my graduate work in clinical psychology I was an obstetrics and public health nurse.
For over a decade I was a Professor of NMU Psychology courses in Gender, Personality, Abnormal Psychology diagnoses, Human Sexuality, Behavioral Analysis, and the Ethics of Clinical Practice.
I see clients for psychotherapy either in my office or virtually on a secure platform. Call 906-360-3544 to schedule.
