Biography

I have served as a member of the faculty in the Department of Clinical Psychology, American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University/Dallas since 2005 and have been a member of the core faculty since 2006. I have a background of more than twenty-five years of experience with adults and adolescents in counseling and mental health settings including institutional settings, public schools, hospitals, residential and outpatient treatment, and private practice. My experience includes teaching, consulting, administrative, and clinical experience. I have served as Department Head for an inpatient addictions treatment program for adults and adolescents and founded a private practice group which has been in operation since 1984. Outside of my teaching responsibilities, my specialized forensic work includes many court appointments, as well as being retained by both defendant's and State's attorneys for the purpose of conducting forensic psychological evaluations and offering expert opinion in criminal and civil matters. In addition to my teaching and faculty responsibilities, other professional responsibilities include serving a gubernatorial appointment as presiding officer for the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists, overseeing the operation of my clinical and forensic practice group, and consulting in the professional practice area of forensic psychology.
