I am a licensed psychologist and received my doctorate in clinical psychology from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology with a concentration in neuropsychology.  After completing my internship at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship specializing in clinical neuropsychology at the Thomson Memory Center in the Chicagoland area.  My previous experiences include conducting neuropsychological assessments at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center and at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City.  I also have experience in providing evidence-based psychotherapy and cognitive rehabilitation services in hospital settings, community clinics, and college counseling centers.  With a background in both psychotherapy and neuropsychology, I strive to provide comprehensive and thorough evaluations with clear recommendations for managing and improving difficulties related to brain-related injuries and illnesses.  My areas of interest include neuropsychological assessment of traumatic brain injury, dementia and other neurodegenerative disorders, stroke, and ADHD, as well as cognitive rehabilitation and psychotherapy.  I work with individuals across the lifespan with a focus on adult and geriatric populations.

The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The meaning of life is to give it away.
-David Viscott-

 

With over 20 years of corporate executive administration experience, I am elated to now be a part of the Rocky Mountain Neuropsychology administration team. I am naturally a very organized person and I prefer my ducks in a row. When I saw the chance to put my talent to work for RMNC, I jumped at the opportunity.

 

I am a perpetrator of endless enthusiasm and gratefulness! I am a morning person and love life daily. I am passionate about helping people and do so regularly as a volunteer for Project Angel Heart, delivering healthy groceries to homebound patients. I also enjoy hosting crafting parties at the Children’s Hospital for patients and their families. I get involved as much as possible doing as many 5K walks for charity as I can. These initiatives not only help the charities but also help me on my own health journey. I love getting involved and having fun while raising money for a great cause.

 

I am the very proud grandmother of two awesome grandsons and one amazing granddaughter. They are the cherries on top of my life! My mission is to make as many wonderful memories with them as my grandmother did with me. My partner of 12 years and I enjoy camping and hiking in the mountains of Colorado and we spoil our two dogs so much they don’t know they are dogs.

We have a free handicap-accessible parking spot available to our clients through the alleyway between Lincoln and Sherman, which is highlighted by the blue circle below.  Unfortunately, there is no longer any free parking available on site. For clients visiting on-site, there are five-hour metered street parking on Sherman Street across the street from our building. There is also two-hour metered street parking on 9th Avenue. A third option is free two-hour street parking on Sherman Street north of 9th Avenue. However, this area is monitored and ticketing is highly enforced. We are not responsible for any tickets or towing costs during your visit, so please ask your psychologist about parking if you have any questions.
