I am a licensed psychologist with a specialty in womens' reproductive health. I earned my doctoral degree in clinical psychology in 2003 from the University of Houston in Houston, TX. I completed my clinical internship at the University of Texas - Houston Health Sciences Center, and went on to complete an additional three years of post-doctoral training in psychosocial oncology and reproductive health at the University of Texas- M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. I am certified in the Domar Mind-Body Program for Infertility and as a Certified Gottman EducatorTM.
In addition to my private practice, I am the consulting psychologist for Women's Services at Presbyterian/ St. Luke's Hospital in Denver, CO, where I work with women on extended antenatal bedrest, as well as with families who have babies in neonatal intensive care at The Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children. I am an educator for The Wishbone Foundation, an organization which provides training on perinatal bereavement and workplace grief for nurses and other healthcare providers. I also consult to the Colorado Department of Health and Environment's program on maternal mental health, serving in a variety of roles.
I hold an academic appointment as a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado Denver and was therapist for the Kempe Center Post-Partum Depression Intervention Program. I am a professional member of Postpartum Support International (and serve as Colorado State Co-Coordinator), Resolve and The American Society of Reproductive Medicine.
As both a psychologist and a mom to two children, I recognize the joys and challenges associated with the journey to parenthood.
