I graduated from the program in 2015. I became licensed as a Clinical Psychologist in Washington, D.C., shortly after completing my post-doctoral training at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst's Center for Counseling and Psychological Health (CCPH). I am currently employed a Washington Psychology Associates conducting psychological evaluations for clients across the lifespan referred for an underlying attention deficit, learning difficulties, and psycho-diagnostic clarity. In addition to my position at WPA, I am also in the process of building a private practice to continue to work with clients in individual and group psychotherapy. 

Program Reflections

Through the C-I program, I was able to hone my conceptualization abilities and to enhance my flexibility in implementing treatment that is grounded in a deep understanding of human functioning. Taken with the diverse practicum experiences offered during my training, the C-I curriculum and faculty afforded me a strong generalist foundation from which I can provide both effective and efficient interventions in my practice.
