“Transformation literally means going beyond your form”

Wayne Dyer

I earned my undergraduate, master, and doctoral degrees from Indiana University. For more than 20 years, my experience has been in clinical and leadership positions in community mental health, outpatient psychotherapy, residential treatment, home-based mental health programs, bereavement, therapeutic foster care and adoption, addictions, and domestic violence.

While working at Indiana University Health in Indianapolis, I further developed the pediatric bereavement program at Riley Hospital for Children, where I also provided training to staff on cultural diversity and grief, and compassion fatigue.

I served as Associate Faculty at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) School of Social Work from 2003 until 2016 where I taught courses in Human Development, Social Policy, Social Work, Leadership, and Cultural Diversity.

I have been a psychotherapist in private practice since December 2011, and currently practice in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
